For the Love of Sound: Extended Gentle & Restorative Yoga Sound Bath
February 8 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm| $60
Extended Yoga Sound Bath with Nicole Bratt and Amber West
Nicole & Amber return in February with an expanded 3-hour gentle and Restorative yoga sound bath. This practice will be a luxurious experience of gentle movement, deep rest, and vibrational healing.
This special event will begin with slow, sweet, spacious movement. Participants will then be guided into reclined Restorative yoga postures. Long-held Restorative yoga shapes are designed to calm the nervous system; among the benefits are improved sleep, digestion, and blood pressure, as well as lower levels of stress, anxiety, and depression. The entire practice will be accompanied by a crystal bowl sound bath. The bowls create strong, resonant vibrations further facilitating rest, healing, and transformation on an even deeper energetic level. The cumulative experience ultimately enhances and harmonizes your overall wellbeing.
Students will have the option to journal/draw or meditate throughout, and are encouraged to bring a journal and writing/drawing instruments, if they desire.
No yoga experience is necessary for this practice, simply a willingness to be present with yourself.
To prepare, please dress in comfortable layers. Bring an eye pillow/mask, non-binding socks, a beverage container with a tight-fitting lid, and a journal, if you wish.
Dates & Time:
- Saturday, February 8, 2020

Please plan carefully: Refunds of 90% are granted up to 5 days prior to the workshop start; after which, no refunds are given.
About The Instructors:
Weaving in skills from various movement and vibrational modalities, Amber offers a unique approach to wellness.
After pursuing many studies in the arts, she fell in love with the depth of acupuncture and began studying at the Wu Hsing Tao School For Acupuncture and Psychology, where she received her NCCAOM certification and license to practice.
Since then she has continued to explore the art and science of healing while pursuing a path that integrates her learning into a holistic practice that improves the lives of clients each visit. Amber’s gift isn’t just what she knows, but how she applies it. Her personal touch, considered care and empathetic sensibilities provide clients a safe space to discuss their hopes, goals and fears allowing Amber to customize sessions for each client.
In addition to her operating 5 Lights Acupuncture, Amber has partnered with Mary’s Place, a shelter for women and children and Roots, a shelter for young adults, and she helps organize fundraising events for various causes.
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 now 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, adventuring near and far, or taking a nap.
