Spring Awakening Sound Healing + Restorative Yoga
Join Sound Healer Mike McGuigan and Yoga Teacher Sarah Lindgren at The Lab Chicago on Racine & Randolph for a night of full body and mind relaxation.
Here Mike and Sarah pair the powerful healing tools of sound and restorative asana to create a space of deep relaxation. This will open the door for you to experience a profound sense of peace and release from chronic tension.
Sound has a powerful effect on how we feel throughout the day. Whether our conscious minds are paying attention or not, our bodies take cues from these sounds. Often in this fast paced western culture we live in a heightened state of fight or flight. This can trigger the release of stress hormones and creates an environment of dis-ease.
Vibrational therapy and restorative yoga have been shown to ease depression, reduce stress, clear sinuses, boost the immune system and can even help those with chronic inflammation recover more quickly, all while creating a deep sense of well being.
Enjoy time connecting to those you love the most. On this afternoon event bring the youngest to the oldest members of your family together in the spirit of play. We will practice partner yoga poses as well as solo postures with an emphasis on play. Laughter, tickles and smiles are expected.

Journaling + Yoga
Use the power of yoga and the written word to clarify your intentions, thoughts and remove mental blocks. Through this 4 week series Sarah will thoughtfully guide you to explore gentle movements that are designed to encourage the flow of your pen to paper with carefully crafted journaling prompts.
In our yoga practice we often use tools of meditation, asana, and pranayama to access a deeper state of serenity or even a higher consciousness. In journaling we begin to free our thoughts, through the physical art of hand writing, allowing our thoughts and experiences to hold their truth in space. When we actively combine these two uniquely personal experiences we are given the opportunity to gain more knowledge about our patterns, and passions. With this knowledge you become empowered to live from your most authentic state.
Experience or knowledge of yoga is not required, please bring your own journal and pen, know that your words are your own and your privacy will be respected. Our final session will be followed with a warm cup and a sweet something.
