Midwinter Sound Bath: Evening Restorative Yoga & Acoustic Journey
Feb 19, 2022| $40
SPECIAL EVENT with Nicole Bratt & Gabrielle Mehlman
You are invited to a cozy winter evening of deep relaxation and sound healing. Your journey will begin with gentle movement to prepare the body for stillness. You’ll then be guided into Restorative yoga shapes on the floor – where you will be steeped in a rich soundscape of song, harmonium, crystal singing bowls, and more.
Sound is one of the most ancient healing modalities for transforming our state of being. When bathed in vibration and melody, our whole body – down to every cell – resonates and responds. Harmonious music and tone can shift our brain waves, deepen our relaxation response, enhance creativity, and uplift our sense of wellbeing. What a gift at any time of year!
Restorative yoga is a receptive practice of stillness; the body is reclined and supported completely by props to stimulate the relaxation response. This practice is suitable for most bodies, regardless of fitness level, age, ability, or experience with yoga.
Put these two powerful healing techniques together and you have the recipe for a deeply relaxing, transformative experience.
Mats and props are all provided, but you are welcome to bring your own.
Dress in cozy layers and bring socks, so that you can stay warm; your body temperature will drop throughout the practice as you move into relaxation response.
We do recommend you bring your own eye cover/pillow/mask.
If you are a journaling type, you might appreciate having a journal and writing implement with you.
Space is very limited; please register early if you wish to attend.
About the instructors: 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 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.
