Energy & Sound Healing

   Thursday June 13th      7:30-9:00 pm

 $20 in advance, $25 at the door $15/$20 for Students  



DESCRIPTION
Join Ruby and Sue in their long awaited initial collaboration.  This deeply restorative evening will start with brief centering, breath work, gentle movement, and meditation. Ruby will then lead everyone through a Yoga Nidra practice (a guided relaxation) followed by around an hour of sound healing, including Tibetan and crystal bowls and the gong. Meanwhile, Sue, who is a very intuitive and seasoned energy medicine practitioner will be working on the whole group. This will not only increase everyone's receptivity to the healing sounds, but will act as a catalyst for clearing physical and emotional blockages, as well as allowing greater connection to one's true self.

This event is not only a wonderful opportunity for those desiring healing and restoration, but also for those who are either physically unable to do yoga or who would like to opt for a more affordable form of energy work than a one on one session.  Treat your whole being to this experience of sound and energy healing!

Bellingham Yoga

Summer Solstice Sound Healing & Double Gong Bath

 Friday, June 21st   7:00-8:30 pm 

 $15 advance, $20 at the door ($10 advance for Students



DESCRIPTION
On the night of the actual Summer Solstice, this sound healing event is a wonderful opportunity uplift your consciousness, balance your energy, and reset yourself. This nurturing evening begins with gentle stretching and movement (all beginner level), breathing, and meditation to allow the nervous system to prepare for the sound vibrations. Then enjoy an extended relaxation (at least 40 minutes long) while experiencing the powerful healing sounds of two gongs, crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, chimes, and a version of guided meditation known as Yoga Nidra.

The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releases us from the torrent of thoughts our mind continuously generates and stimulates our glandular system to a higher frequency of functioning.

 “The gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind. There is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind-the sound of the gong. It is the first sound in the universe, the sound that created this universe. It is the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played.” – Yogi Bhajan

Doors open at 6:30. Please arrive at least 5-10 minutes early to get set up. Mats and blankets are available to use, but bring your own for extra comfort if you’d like.

Workshop "Introduction to Kum Nye (Tibetan Yoga)"

 Sunday, June 23    10:00 am to 1:00 pm 

 $35 (advance) $45 (at door) *includes mid-morning snack & all print outs  



DESCRIPTION
Come and discover the yogic tradition founded in the mountains of the Himalayas. Kum Nye yoga originates from the ancient Buddhist Vinaya and Tibetan medical texts. The word “Kum” means to expand, “Nye” means to stimulate the flux of energy in the body with the objective to bring the body and mind into balance. Tibetan born, Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche, brought the Kum Nye method to the West after Chinese occupation in Tibet. Kum Nye is an ancient structured yoga practice rooted in Buddhism, combining postures with meditation and self-massage. The practice balances, opens and expands one's understanding of Self. I've found these practices extremely direct and powerful in accessing and experiencing Oneness. Join me to explore this ancient tradition and learn who was the first Enlightened Tibetan and what she has to teach us!

Practice: Includes Kum Nye morning asana sequence, a guided cleansing meditation, key mantras of this lineage, followed by exploration of historical roots of this powerful and special tradition developed in the Himalayas.

Receive: Receive a take home print out of the morning daily practice inclusive of the posture sequence, cleansing meditation instructions, mantras and their meaning, and further reading material list.

Inspire Studio Reviews

  • Julia Moss ★★★★★
    This historical one room yoga studio is a beautiful place for a class. Instructors range in style, class time, and difficulty but owner Ruby Koa does a beautiful job filling her space with love. Drop in for a sweat at the noon power hour on Tuesday or Thursday, start your weekend off right with a free meditation class Friday afternoon or ever try the new aerial yoga class offered with silks. Inspire is an incredible place to find community and spirit.

  • Ali Michelin ★★★★★
    Thus place really does have heart ♥! I've only taken classes with Ruby, but heard great things about the other instructors too. There's a calm, happy energy about this space, and Ruby is so open, sweet, joyful and just a fabulous instructor!! I highly recommend Inspire Studio!!
