Take the first steps into yoga in a safe and supportive environment. Class size is limited so each student receives personal attention. In five weekly classes, students are introduced to the history and present day forms of yoga, while learning basic asana (poses) that strengthen and stretch.

Gong Bath with Wayne Marto

Thursday | 3/23 | 6:30-8 pm | $20 
Sunday | 5/7 | 6-7:30 pm | $20 
Thursday | 6/15 | 6-7:30 pm | $20 

Join us on a transformative journey of healing and deep relaxation, as we bathe every cell of the body in therapeutic sound and vibration. The pure, penetrating sound waves of the gong cleanse the subconscious and awaken the listener to a transcendent state of awareness.

The gong acoustically elevates us, creating a spontaneous meditative state, restoring harmony and vitality to the body and mind. The listener only has to let go and let the sound of the gong do the work. The experie nce is effortless and the results profound.

We will be supported by the magical frequencies of a Pluto gong. Pluto gongs teach us to let go and to purge the negative energy and thoughtpatterns that don’t serve us. Pluto gongs are known for their grounding and calming effect, opening our hearts to forgiveness and healing.

The gong bath is best experienced simply lying down on your back or a similar comfortable position. Wear comfortable clothes and bring whatever you need to be relaxed for the meditation (yoga mat, blanket, pillow, extra water, etc.).

The sonic massage w ill leave you feeling tuned, refreshed and connected with your intuitive personal power. With this renewed sense of self comes a profound feeling of oneness with the creative and sustaining life force and energy of the universe. Life then takes on an unbelievable richness that cannot be described. It has to be experienced.

We will visit the ancient spice trade port city of Kochi, a high mountain tea plantation, and enjoy a biodynamic farmstay where we will see and taste many of the spices and ayurvedic herbs grown in this natural resource-rich area of southern India. We end the journey close to the coast where we enjoy a special day-long houseboat journey on the inland waters, visit several Hindu temples and enjoy the warm beaches of the Indian ocean. Each day we will have time to practice yoga and meditation, both with Annie and local yoga teachers.

I was less than enthusiastic when I remembered my wife and I had signed up to take a couples massage workshop. My attitude quickly changed during the workshop with Annie. The entire experience was informative, enjoyable and rejuvenating. Annie’s instruction was clear, and the techniques she demonstrated and taught immediately brought ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ as we practiced on one another. The time flew by. I left with more confidence in my ability to effectively massage my wife as well as a newly relaxed and energized body.
