Restorative Yoga combines extended floor postures with various yoga props to help support the muscles and bones, allowing the body to enter a state of deep relaxation. As the layers of the body soften and let go of tension, you can enter a restful space. Enjoy the soothing and soulful sounds of the Sadhana Sisters as Donna guides you through this restorative practice.
Sadhana, the foundation of spiritual devotion, is embodied by the Sisters – Brooke and Stephanie. Their serendipitous connection birthed a musical sisterhood, united in praise and worship. These kindred spirits craft original songs infused with heartfelt expression. Their performances are a symphony of instruments, including crystal bowls, Buffalo drum, harmonium, guitar, bells, cymbals, and rattles, enveloping the audience in an organic sisterly harmony that resonates with mind, body, and soul. With radiant generosity, their work transcends cultures and faiths, weaving a sacred tapestry of connection through sound.
Suitable for practitioners of all levels, this practice offers a journey of renewal and embodiment. Feel the rejuvenation unfold.

Crystal Brooke, a Mississippi native, earned her Bachelor of Biological Sciences (pre-med) degree from the University of New Orleans, specializing in early childhood development. With 5 dedicated years in New Orleans as a passionate yoga practitioner, she then transitioned to Pensacola, FL, where she honed her practice for 6 years and completed an extensive 300-hour yoga teacher training at Breathe Yoga & Wellness, guided by mentors Divya Elting, Stacey Vann, and Christa Sonnier. Alongside her yoga journey, she finds solace in nature, enjoys mentoring children, cooking, and remains a devoted student of yoga.
Her chosen yogic path is Bhakti yoga, the path of devotion. Bhakti yoga, known as “love for love’s sake” and “union through love and devotion,” is her conduit to self-realization, fostering oneness with all. Through her melodious voice, Crystal Brooke unites the community in experiencing the essence of the Spirit through song and praise. With a yoga journey spanning over 12 years, she discovered profound healing through sound and somatic embodiment. The ancient technology of the sacred sound current encompasses transformative practices that elevate inner awareness, raise vibrational frequencies, calm the mind, purify energy fields, and unclutter consciousness from overstimulation.
Crystal Brooke guides her students into spaces of authentic healing through yoga, meditation, and sacred sound. Her teaching ethos is to instill practices that transcend the mat, allowing students to integrate them into their daily lives and the world beyond.
