[Cancelled] Sacred Stillness & Sound 2020: Second Saturday Sound Baths with Restorative Yoga
Sep 12, 2019 @ 7:30 pm| $30
Join Nicole & Amber West for an extraordinary journey of deep relaxation and healing: a 90-minute Restorative yoga practice accompanied by an immersive crystal bowl sound bath. Come explore the sacred, energetic union of breath, body, mind, and sound during long-held, receptive asana.
Restorative yoga, designed to calm your nervous system, creates an environment for you to wholly relax and space for you to be with the shifting landscape of your mind and heart. Among its benefits are improved sleep, digestion, and blood pressure, as well as lower levels of stress, anxiety, and depression. The sound bath creates strong, resonant vibrations that further facilitate rest, healing, and transformation on an even deeper energetic level by allowing the body and mind to open and release stuck patterns and blocks. The cumulative experience ultimately enhances and harmonizes your overall wellbeing.
Suitable for all bodies, regardless of fitness level, age, ability or experience with yoga.

About the instructors: Nicole Bratt & Amber West
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.
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.
