Yoga & Sound Journey

Yoga & Sound Journey
Friday, March 20, 6 – 7:30 pm
With Catherine Albertini & Robert Brevoort
For this session, we begin with a 30-minute seated meditation and gently move into a sequence of simple seated yoga postures to stretch our bodies and get us into a relaxed state. Then, we will spend the next hour lying on the floor in a supported savasana (corpse pose) to easily allow the waves of sound to wash over us. Note: Please feel free to bring any extra props you would appreciate in an extended relaxation pose. (Bolsters and eye pillows are nice.)
Many of you have been to the sound bath sessions before, but for those of you who have not, this sound bath is part meditation and part listening exercise. Robert Brevoort plays the gong, didgeridoo, singing bowls, rav drum, flute and a few other instruments with tones and rhythms designed for mind and body healing and to take you on a spiritual journey.
There is no cost to attend this class, but we encourage you to donate what you’re comfortable with to show your appreciation.

During this retreat, we will work together to guide your mind and body into alignment, allowing you to feel clear, calm and in harmony with your authentic self while engaging in healing fellowship with other women.


The retreat includes:

  •  Three yoga sessions — Ignite your Root Chakra, Energizing Flow, and Relaxing yoga.
  •  A personalized tank top. CreativiTee from downtown Salem will be joining us for this portion of the retreat. Roanna (owner and designer) will be here with tank tops, design supplies, and her expertise to help us all create our own one-of-a-kind tank tops we can wear that day!
