Healing Sound Bath and Restorative Yoga with Dawn Torres Sat, Apr 15, 2017 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

For Movement and Sound Bath:
During this class, Dawn will first guide you through restorative postures to allow the body to release some of the stress and tension of the day. We will then come into a comfortable Savasana position to receive the healing vibrations and sounds of the Tibetan Singing Bowls, Crystal Bowls, Giant Gong and various healing sound Tools.

The healing benefits of sound are numerous and affect all levels of our being, body, mind and spirit. The high vibrations of the crystal and Tibetan singing bowls raise the vibrations of all the cells and tissues in the body, releasing stress, tension, discomfort and energy blockages that can cause us to feel anxious, heavy, sluggish, sad, worried, hopeless or depressed. Sound Healing is a wonderful, gentle, feel good way to come into balance and leave feeling blissed and blessed. Please dress in layers.

As a yoga teacher and energy and sound healer, Dawn blends her love of teaching yoga with many years of studying alternative healing modalities. She guides clients and students to wake up their deeply rooted inner guidance system through Yoga, Reiki and Sound Healing. She has come to know that the body's natural inclination is towards wellness, it is her passion to assist others in becoming aware of and removing the obstacles in the way of that movement.

The cost is $35.
