Bathe in a shower of soothing tones

 

A sonic environment will be created using a variety of instruments including quartz crystal bowls, gong, ocean drum, and rain stick, along with vocal toning. Every sound journey is unique as it is an intuitive process requiring deep sensitivity as to what is needed and the choice of sounds used. The instruments are played around you, over you, and sometimes on you, so you can feel the vibrations of the instruments. The constant sounds incites a deep relaxation and letting go of the density of the physical body. The tones act as keys to unlock denser energy held within the physical, emotional, etheric bodies and the unconscious mind. Relax, enjoy, and bathe in a shower of soothing tones.

Led by: Special guest, Patricia Norton

The catalyst for Patricia’s journey as a sound healer was inspired by her love for the earth, nature, and being of service to others. Also from many sojourns to India where she was immersed in the power of Vedic chant. It is her passion to help people relieve stress and create a journey to a place where the mind is empty and the Sound is full, unlocking the emotions held within your memory, thus, balancing the body, mind and spirit.

Create healing. 

with Sudevi Linda Kramer M.A., L.M.T.
Vedic Thai Massage-Assisted Yoga is traditionally performed on a large comfortable cotton futon floor mat which gives the receiver both comfort and full-body support. Working on the floor also allows the therapist to move freely around and above the client, making for effective use of the therapist’s bodyweight and mechanics. The therapist can also work with the receiver in a variety of positions, including prone, supine, side-lying, and seated.
In a Vedic Thai Massage-Assisted Yoga session you will wear loose-fitting or stretchy clothing that allows your body to move.No oils are needed. The techniques used work far beneath the surface of the body, effecting the deeper layers of the muscles and skeleton.
After the completion of this two-day Thai Yoga Bodywork course, participants will have the foundation for giving a classic 90-minute session. We will work in supine, prone, side-lying, and seated asanas. All participants will receive hands-on assistance, as well as a course manual to take home.

Thai Bodywork is marma therapy and synthesizes acupressure, rhythmic compressions, ancient breathing arts and meditation to produce profound rest and rejuvenation. Mantras for the marmas and chakras will also be included.

Study: A 3000-year old traditional Southeast Asian Folk Art, which creates inspired tranquility and radiant whole health.

Sudevi was inducted into the World Massage Hall of Fame at Berea College in June 2010. Sudevi serves as the Yoga Director for the Vedic Conservatory.

“Sudevi is the real deal. Her presence initiates a magical spiritual journey intermingled with true rejuvenation and cellular healing. Her classes hold a special light that leave you feeling new again. Sudevi’s hand’s-on instruction is simple and complete — you get home and you can actually give a session without the DVD, and even though you are wowed by her mastery – you are even more wowed that you can do it too. She takes the confusion out of sequencing. I take her classes as often as I can— even after I’ve met my ce requirements — and some block, some something is always lifted and the world seems brighter.” ~Shawn M. Brinza, LMT, aka “The Massage Gypsy.”

“Sudevi’s presence is amazing and I would recommend taking any and every form of yogic study with her. Her love of yoga, meditation, and mantra are a big part of this work. I was able to apply the principles and produce the work for a change! Some teachers are razzle dazzle and you have to keep coming back to “Get it.”Sudevi is a born teacher, and the art is pranically transmitted and skillfully imparted. She has a calming presence and a relaxed easy manner. The peace I experienced is now part of my life and practices. ~Tana Trichel, Monroe, LA, Yoga Student.
