The Harmonies of Winter: A Christmas Evening Practice & Sound Bath
Dec 25, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm| $35.00
A SPECIAL CLASS with Nicole Bratt & Amber West
In the midst of Winter Solstice and the busy winter holidays, come explore and honor your own evolving inner landscape through gentle movement, stillness, and being enveloped in energy as sound. Join Nicole Bratt for a sweet gentle and Restorative yoga practice, accompanied by a healing sound bath by Amber West.
This nourishing two-hour practice begins with a slow flow to explore the dynamic relationship of your body and breath through gentle movement. You’ll then transition to a soothing Restorative practice with long-held, passive poses, intentionally soothing your nervous system, creating space for you to simply be with the shifting landscape of mind and heart. The crystal bowls create strong, resonant vibrations that facilitate rest and healing on an even deeper energetic level by allowing the body and mind to release stuck patterns and blocks. The cumulative experience will ultimately enhance and harmonize your overall wellbeing.
Please dress in layers, and bring socks and an eye cover.
This special class will fill; pre-registration is highly encouraged.
About the Teacher: Nicole Bratt
Nicole, a Midwest native, is committed to holding space for students so that they may benefit from this elegant practice we know as yoga. She is deeply honored to be doing just that as the Studio Manager at Seattle Yoga Arts. Her life passion is cultivating vibrant and inclusive community wellness, and she is excited to bring her diverse background as a graphic designer, yoga teacher, event planner, photographer, volunteer coordinator, and small business owner to SYA.
As a group fitness instructor, Nicole explored yoga briefly in her 20s, but initially there was little resonance. When yoga crossed her path again in her 30s, she discovered she was ready to fully embrace its life-changing gifts. Her path led to completing both 200-hr and 500-hr teacher trainings at Yoga Tree San Francisco, and she specializes in Restorative, gentle, therapeutic, and prenatal modalities. She is passionate about the power of stillness as a transformational experience, as well as an antidote to urban living. After 12+ years living, working, and studying in San Francisco, Nicole transplanted to our lush, beautiful Seattle. When she’s not at the studio, you are likely to find Nicole outdoors, listening to live music, creating art, making/eating delicious food, or adventuring near and far.
