SOUND HEALING MEDITATION WORKSHOP with quartz crystal healing bowls 7:30-9pm at UpDog Yoga in Rochester, MI Friday October 13th. Vibro Acoustics works on the body and the Brain in several ways; the sound from the crystal bowls emanates from the source and is felt by the body as vibration and heard by the ears as sound. The vibration input stimulates nerve bundles along the spine, up into the brainstem and then through the limbic system. In addition, the sound stimulates the medulla in the brain stem and activates the auditory nerve which connects with all of the muscles in the body. These reactions signal the body to relax and flood the brain with mood lifting chemicals. Moreover, the low frequencies also caused a relaxation of the tissues, and the dilation of blood vessels, as well as, an opening of the lymphatic pathways which, in turn, increases the body's ability to heal. www.updogyoga.com or call 248-608-6668 to register or for more information. #goloveyourself❤️ #soundhealing #updogyogami

Somato Respiratory iIntegration (SRI) exercises are based on Donald Epstein's book " the 12 stages of Healing" and are designed to help the brain to reconnect with the body and its experience. The goal of SSRI is to help an individual develop lifetime skills, safety, strength, wisdom and love in relationship to the experience of his or her body, it's vibration, structure, and energy. In this Workshop, doctor Bell teaches participants how to directly experience the power and wisdom of breath and its relationship to the body, touch, and movement. Through connecting a person's breath, touch, focused movement, and attention, they are able to experience the body more fully and instantly shift their state of consciousness to one that supports trust for the body-mind and their life experience. These first three stages fall within the season of Discovery. Each of the seasons (discovery, transform, and awaken) have a different quality or flavor, bringing with it its own richness of personal growth and development. No prior pranayama or yoga experience required all levels welcome. Pre-register at www.updogyoga.com/workshops. #transformation #updogyogami #pranayama #sri
