A Summer Relaxation with Pati Pellerito

It’s true, basking in the sunshine for a little time each day is very beneficial. Likewise, having our body bathed in harmonious sounds and waves from instruments such as Tibetan Singing Bowls, each one keyed to the energy centers or chakras centers of the body and Planetary Gongs, tuned to frequencies from the cosmos, provide nutrition for the nervous system.

“I invite you to bask in waves of peace, heightened awareness and relaxation of body and mind. Come and simply relax, release tension from your body and ease your mind as you lie down and allow the tones and energy to wash through you.” —  Pati

Saul David Raye

Dear Kitty, Lyn & Yoga Friends,

…it was transcendent! Looking around the Big Bend Center on Saturday night with dancing, singing and children playing—What a night! I was flooded with so much gratitude for this amazing community you have built and so much happiness to be with friends… And so many amazing memories! I remember my first handstand against the deck-side wall; restorative class after an exhausting week at work; coming to recover after childbirth; practicing through chemo; partner stretches with friends and later with my husband-to-be; practicing with Kitty, Lyn, and all the amazing teachers who have been there over the years. What a beautiful, sacred space you hold for all of us! Thank you, thank you, thank you, and please, when you talk to him, thank Saul!! Jai!
