A Benefit for Ms. Richmond’s 4th Grade Class Student Library at Gilbert Park Elementary
Get down to a fun and energetic all-levels yoga class set to Madonna’s classic album while supporting a low-income classroom library in need at RAY OF LIGHT YOGA, August 16th from 6:30 to 8 PM.
From “Drowned World / Substitute to Love” all the way to “Mer Girl,” we’ll enjoy a playful and challenging class incorporating asana, pranayama, meditation, and even a little unconventional kirtan sequenced to Ray of Light in its entirety.
Proceeds of the class go directly towards purchasing books for Ms. Richmond’s 4th grade class library at Gilbert Park Elementary. Many of the students at this Title 1 school come from backgrounds with little access to books; as a new teacher, Ms. Richmond is responsible for building a classroom library at her own expense. Participants are also invited, if they’d like, to bring additional donations of new-condition books from a 2nd to 7th-grade reading level for Ms. Richmond’s class library.
We in the yoga community know that miracles occur when we work together — so, we invite you to join us in a celebration of community, education, and dance-pop fun at RAY OF LIGHT YOGA.Read more
AUGUST 15, 7:15-8:30pm
$15 dollars in advance, $18 at the door
Join us the 3rd Friday of every month for a special evening of triple gong meditation created to uplift consciousness, balance your energy and unlock the joy from within. This healing experience begins with breathing, gentle stretching and movement (all beginner level) which allows the nervous system to prepare for the sound vibrations. Class participants then lie face up on a yoga mat in resting pose (Shivasana) and experience the powerful healing sound vibrations of two gongs, crystal bowl, bells, and guided meditation.
“You have no resistance against this sound. It is the master sound, the Adi Naad. Everything you think becomes zero—the gong prevails.”
Sound healing meditations are considered one of the most deeply healing and restorative meditations possible because of the deep state of relaxation that is attained in response to the sound vibration. Many class participants feel as though a huge weight has been lifted off of them by the end of the meditation. Don’t miss this opportunity to de-stress and relax!
“This is the first and the last instrument for the human mind; the human mind has no power before it. This is the only thing that supersedes the human mind, because this is the basic creative sound. Mind was created out of it; it’s like the father and mother together.”
