OB yoga Relax 01“Relax into Now” Workshop – December 17

Two Brighton Avenue neighbors named “Mary” are teaming up to bring a new kind of event to OB.

They came up with – “Relax Into Now” – an interactive evening of “playful paths to the present” through movement, rhythm and sound.  Sounds like fun, doesn’t it.

The concept was born on the massage table as therapist Mary Owen and client Mary Tolena played with workshop ideas.  Mary O teaches yoga, and Mary T’s passion is creating group experiences with rhythm and drumming.  They have envisioned a fun, uplifting program that will create easy access to the benefits from both.

This is what the Marys say:

“Relax Into Now” will be a guided, interactive happening, co-created by all participants.  It will entail aspects from yoga classes; a sound healing meditation, a rhythm workshop and a drum circle. The integrated journey ends in a musical high.

It really is for everyone, regardless whether the participants have experience with drumming or yoga.

The focus will be on the awareness of simple avenues to find relaxation and feel good in the process of stretching and playing drums.  And, from a health standpoint, our brains and bodies naturally attune to rhythm and sound vibrations.  Learning to tune into rhythms – inner and outer – is a powerful, accessible way to de-stress.  And what better time of the year than this holiday season to learn how to feel good about oneself?

Why not come and join us Thursday night to enjoy a new methods of music and yoga combined.  It will be a different and new experience and one that you will return to over and over.  $25 in advance; $30 at the door.  For more information go to http://rhythmlift.com/relax- into-now/.
