 Second Friday Series — Dance Journey with Rhonda Mills

Come dance, breathe, move, play, discover,
connect & nourish yourself!

NOTE: The dates for Dance Journey will be on the second friday of the month.

Second Friday — 7:30–9:30pm
Big Bend Yoga Center
By Donation — $20 suggested.

In this monthly gathering, we begin in a circle and each select a heart-focus: something you’d like to shift or to create. You will be guided through some simple, powerful breathing and movement techniques, and a different transformative body-centered process each month in support of creating what you want.

The last hour we’ll dance and move and play — your body’s way — to a recorded music playlist, inspired by Joseph Campbell’s The Hero’s Journey. We will complete our dance journey with relaxation.

Wear comfortable clothing, bring a pen and a journal, and come with an openness to learn in the easiest, friendliest way to laugh and to play.

Pre-register HERE at least one day before the event to ensure you receive a handout, or drop in ten minutes before the start time — 7:20pm.

 Third Saturday Series — Tibetan Singing Bowl w/ Pati Pellerito

TIbetan Singing BowlsSOUND BATHING —
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

4–5:30 pm / $15

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!
