Special Guests Sughosh Berg & Valerie Viosca

Sponsored by The Positive Vibrations Foundation 

Enjoy ambient resonant mantra tunes sung live by Swan Michelle & accompanied by Goshi Berg with a low key, mellow vibe slow flow, all levels asana class by Rebecca. This class will take it’s time, activating presence, awareness, and listening. Half way through, you will lie down in a long 45 minute relaxation pose and receive the sacred sounds of a classic Sound Bath by Swan Michelle while Rebecca offers gentle Thai Massage Spa style & aromatherapy & Valerie offers Acupressure to cap off the Mahabhuta celebration.

A Sound Bath is a pure high vibrational, intentional lying down concert including pure hertz frequency instruments such as crystal bowls, planetary gongs, tuning forks, balinese metal drums, elemental chimes & soothing serenade of sacred mantra by Swan Michelle. This is a recalibrate and reset of the nervous system, energy body and chakras back into symphonic homeostasis. In yoga, luminous sound, tuning in and listening are the most original form of healing and interconnection as all things come from sound.
