Adria Andromeda E-RYT 200 and Jessica Saraswati RYT 200
In this workshop, Jessica Saraswati and Adria Andromeda will guide you in creating your very own mala, using the semi-precious stone of your choice. You will also learn the correct way of chanting on your mala and using it as a tool for spiritual advancement in the powerful guided meditation at the conclusion of the workshop. In this workshop you will use a Zodiac bead of your astrological sign as your guru stone.
A Mala is a string of beads used to count mantras in sets of 108 repetitions. A mantra is a word or series of words chanted aloud or silently to invoke spiritual qualities. Chanting is used as a spiritual tool in virtually every cultural and religious tradition. In the yogic tradition a mantra is a Sanskrit word that has special powers to transform consciousness, promote healing or fulfill desires. The practice of chanting a mantra is used as a form of meditation. Sitting in a comfortable position, with the eyes closed, the mantra is repeated silently or aloud. The mind is focused on the mantra, the thoughts are let go of and the breath is slow and deep.

Adria Andromeda E-RYT 200
Join Adria as she leads you through a gentle vinyasa flow. She will guide you gently and offer modifications. Then she will transition you into restorative yoga; a form of yoga that seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props. Props are used to support the body so that you can hold poses for longer, allowing you to open your body through passive stretching. The postures are usually adapted from supine or seated yoga poses with the addition of blocks, bolsters, and blankets to eliminate unnecessary straining. This specialty class will conclude with a singing bowl meditation through your savasana.
All levels welcome.
