CHAKRA TUNING: Sound Healing & Restorative Yoga Experience
Join us for a night of Yoga and Sound, dedicated to tune your chakra system. On September 20th, Sarah Lindgren and Mike McGuigan combine to couple restorative movement with sound vibration. The combination can help to re-align these energy centers in your body. This alignment allows your energy to flow more freely creating space for deep healing, and a deep state of calm.
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 quickly, all while creating a deep sense of well-being.
Halloween Party Practice
Many cultures around the world have celebrations to honor the cycle of life, death and rebirth. Join Bloom yoga teachers Meggan Riley and Sarah Lindgren for an evening in the celebration of Halloween. This practice is created to honor that cycle of life, death, and rebirth with playful expression or “lila”. We will call for blessings from the forces of nature that are beyond our mastery, and engage in a full scope yoga practice inspired by Goddess Kali.
The elements of this practice are designed for all who wish to experience the bounty of the yoga practice. It will include; mythology (storytelling), pranayama (breathing practices), dhyana (meditation), asana (physical postures) as well as creating connection in community.
We hope you will join us for this event of divine play on Saturday, October 19 at 7:00 pm.Costumes are not required but encouraged. We do recommend that you wear non violent items which you can move freely in.

Here in this space we will connect to the pure life, allowing our days and evenings to be inspired by the natural rhythm of nature and our divine connection to all living beings. Allowing the natural light of sun, moon and stars illuminate your face and elevate your spirit.

Join Sarah Lindgren for an afternoon dedicated to deep understanding of back pain and relief. Sarah has experienced many injuries including two herniated discs in her low back. It is through injuries like these that Sarah has learned how to ease pain in her own practice. As a yoga teacher Sarah believes these injuries have made her a better teacher, knowing what chronic pain is and how it functions. Sarah would like to share with you how to adapt your teachings to serve those in pain. In this workshop you will learn which poses create relief or strain, how to administer adjustments safely and how to train your eye to see what your students are not telling you.
