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

Though still a couple weeks away, summer solstice, which spiritually symbolizes our own rise in consciousness is just around the corner.

Then enjoy a version of yoga nidra (guided relaxation) segueing into an at least 35 minute long double gong bath. Sounds of quartz crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, and chimes will also be trickled throughout the event.


Bellingham Yoga

Yoga of Sound Immersion: Gong, Singing Bowl, & Flute Journey

 Ruby Koa & Loren Schaumberg
   Sunday, June 24th      1-5 pm

 $50 advance, $60 at the door  



DESCRIPTION
Yoga of Sound immersion has come from the previous sound journeys Ruby and Loren have offered together. It will be an extended version of the Yoga of Sound events with the extra treat of heart nourishing cacao.

We will begin with breathwork, vocalization, toning, and chanting to establish safe and equal space, set intentions, and create a sacred container together. Ruby will guide the group through yoga warm ups and a short Kundalini Yoga set (mixed levels) and meditation while Loren provides intentional sounds to support the practice. Yoga nidra (guided relaxation) will prepare our bodies to fully relax as we move into an hour and a half long sound journey. You’ll be immersed in the healing vibrations of crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, flutes, gong, and chimes. This immersion carries the intention of deepening into our experience of self awareness and sacred sound, allowing a clear mindfulness to emerge, softening into our subconscious, and accessing our body's natural healing capabilities.

More Info. on Sound Healing
A Sound Circle is the physical experience of receiving the vibration of instruments and voice with the intention of healing, empowerment, and integration of one’s Divine Being. Weaving a sacred container of safety, love, and ancient wisdom to help support a journey beyond ego-consciousness and into the light of our highest potential. By using the access point of the sound current to merge with the Universal Energy Field we engage our essential Self and conceive new inner sources of vital creativity, guidance, power, and self-knowing.

The human body, and all things in our Universe, are designed according to harmonic principles of varying geometry, pattern, and frequency. Everything is sound in that everything is vibrating and thus has a waveform. In understanding the relationship of sound to material form- the study of cymatics- we can begin to positively affect the well-being of the body through the appropriate use of sound and vibration.

More Info. on Cacao
Cacao is a plant native to Central and South America that has been used historically by the Aztecs and Mayans for medicinal and ritualistic purposes. Its scientific name Theobroma cacao actually means “food for the Gods” and it was believed to have been sent from the heavens as a gift to mankind.

Most cacao that you come by today has been processed and roasted in such a way that it loses most of its health and spiritual benefits. Ceremonial cacao however is cultivated and prepared in the traditional way so that it retains the spirit of cacao as well as its remedying properties so that it can be used in ceremony.

 Thursday June 28th   7:30-9:00 pm

 Drop in $15, Student drop in $12, Class packages and new student specials can be used.

If you plan to drop in, please purchase your drop in pass in advance, as taking payment outside will be more complicated. Students can purchase theirs here.



WHERE
This circle will be held in a private, beautiful outdoor location about 20 minutes away in Custer, WA.  Please email Ruby at rubycrystal@gmail.com or text/call at 360-941-8556 to get the address.  Those who live in town can meet at the Lakeway Fred Meyer near the Tire Center to carpool at 6:45 pm. 

DESCRIPTION
Let your intentions be magnified with other women as we open our bodies with yoga & movement to prepare for deep meditation.  These circles serve as a great opportunity to gather together with other like-minded women to celebrate and tap into our powerful feminine energy and to deepen our understanding and relationship to the cycles of the moon.

This is our first outdoor full moon circle, which will allow us to have a fire, connecting us to generations of women who gathered together upon Mother Earth, below Mother Moon!

Because parking is limited, it’s important that everyone carpools (at least 3 ppl. per car please!).  Please contact Ruby for the address and give her your estimated # of people. We’ll be on a slightly uneven grassy surface, so please bring your own yoga mat, blankets, cushion, or whatever you need to be comfortable.  If you need a mat, let Ruby know as she’ll be bringing just a few.

Lots of snacks and tea are available afterwards and there is a nice trail for a nature walk, so plan to stay for a bit! Bring a journal and an item to set on the altar if you’d like. Please arrive at least 10 minutes early.

*If the weather is extremely bad that day, the circle will be canceled. See the website and facebook event for details.

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 ★★★★★
