Gentle, Meditative Yoga
We begin with meditation, to relax and become present in your body. We work our way up to moderate level poses in the middle, but nothing too strenuous. You are encouraged to continually find your 'sweet spot', where you are working your body's leading edge, without hurting yourself. We also end the yoga component with meditation. Yoga is a wonderful practice to open the body and voice for chanting...
Break: about 7:15--7:30
Chanting and Song
We being with a vocal warm-up to continue opening the voice. The chanting will generally be simple, spiritual words and melodies that repeat, often accompanied by drum rhythm. These chants are melodic, rhythmic affirmations that create a healing effect on the mind, body and spirit. No musical experience necessary. Chanting is a gentle form of exercise, and it is an opportunity to find your voice and creatively express yourself...
