Join us the 3rd Friday of every month for a special evening of double 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.”
Please come join us for a steady, sweet 2-hour asana and meditation practice to help raise money for kitty Taeden’s medical bills. Uma has graciously volunteered to teach, and Shakti House has generously volunteered the space, for this evening’s class.
Taeden is a six month old feline friend of Kat O’Toole, and in mid-April got his leg caught and broke his femur. The medical bills were almost $3000 to get him on the mend, and he is doing fabulous. Taeden might even make an appearance at the studio.
Suggested donation is $15. 100% of proceeds will go towards paying Taeden’s medical bills. Please contact Shakti House at 503-972-2929 to RSVP for the class – please bring cash or check to the studio the night of the class. (If credit card is the only way you have to pay, please contact Kat O’Toole for more details as to how you can do this.)Read more

Vinyasa Krama is defined as the linked moments in a continuous succession of change, and Sadhana is conscious spiritual practice. This two hour monthly class opens with philosophical contemplations and Sanskrit mantra then dives deep into vinyasa sequences designed for the continuing student. We close with dedicated time for pranayama to steady the breath and mind, and then settle in for silent meditation.Read more
