Sound Bath with Michelle Befus
Apr 5, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm| $25
Join Michelle for an evening immersed in the power of sound. Sound and vibration will be used to adjust your breath, heart rate and brain waves to the frequency of relaxation and equanimity. While experiencing different tones, tempos and patterns, the listener naturally shifts from an active waking state of consciousness to a more relaxed meditative state of awareness. Benefits include increased levels of relaxation in the body, ease and comfort in breathing, reduced feelings of anxiety or physical pain, mental clarity and restful sleep.
The session opens with a seated meditation, bringing awareness to the body, mind and breath. Then, as you rest in Savasana, Michelle uses crystal singing bowls an chimes, tuned to resonate with each energy center of the body, to create a space of deep relaxation and rejuvenation. The session closes with a period of pure silence, allowing the simplicity of stillness to reveal deeper feelings of clarity, presence and peace.
Wear warm comfortable clothing that allows you to stretch and relax. All are welcome! No previous yoga experience required.

About the instructor: Michelle Befus
My passion for yoga and teaching is evident in the lighthearted, enthusiastic approach I strive to bring to every class. Combining alignment instruction with vinyasa (flow) transitions, my classes focus on presence, awareness and a strong attention to detail. I create a down to earth, non-intimidating environment students, using the physical body as a vehicle to draw attention to the present moment. As an educator of yoga, I am committed to teaching mindful movement, breath awareness and the practice of accessing ease in mind and body everyday.
Off the mat, I’m inspired by the beauty of nature. The close proximity of both the mountains and the water is what I love most about living in the Pacific Northwest. In my free time, you will find me enjoying my favorite outdoor activities, which include rock climbing and stand-up paddleboarding.
I received my 500 hour teaching certification at Pacific Yoga with Theresa Elliott and Kathryn Payne. I continue learning from my mentors today and am passionate about carrying on the traditional values of yoga that my teachers embody. Besides group and private classes, I offer workshops, retreats and continuing education across the Pacific Northwest.
