Natural Awakenings Sarasota / Manatee / Charlotte

Music and Yoga Therapy Workshop for Everyone

Sep 01, 2014 03:05AM

Garden of the Heart Yoga Center is pleased to bring BoomerPlus® Yoga Founder, Amy Kraft, back to Sarasota for the second year in a row. On September 27, Kraft is collaborating with GoH director, Cheryl Chaffee, in a workshop combining the power of biomechanical alignment therapeutics with the healing vibrations of mantras.

Kraft will demonstrate and instruct participants into therapeutic alignments for the feet, knees, hips, spine, shoulders and neck. While students are doing the postures, Chaffee will chant mantras at specific frequencies to energize the major chakras, and will encourage workshop participants to sing or hum along.

Chanting mantra is a powerful combination of words and music. When the intention of spoken words is combined with the vibration of musical notes, song is created, which has the power to heal the body and heart. When chanting mantras, participants open channels of energy in their body, clearing the dust that covers the heart and sending vibrations into every cell to facilitate healing. Combined with the specific, therapeutic actions of alignment-based Hatha Yoga, the healing power of mantra is magnified and condensed into the specific part of the body being focused on.

This course is open to everyone and is the only workshop of its kind offered in Florida. Yoga teachers may earn 4 Yoga Alliance® CEUs. The course will also be offered in a 6-hour format on October 5 at the Health & Harmony Center in Ft. Myers. The registration deadline is September 13.

Location: Garden of the Heart Yoga Center, 2888 Ringling Blvd., Sarasota. For more information, phone 941-341-9781, email [email protected] or visit
