Yoga Nidra with Sound Healing

Black Cat Yoga

YOGA NIDRA IS AMONG THE DEEPEST POSSIBLE STATES OF RELAXATION WHILE STILL MAINTAINING FULL CONSCIOUSNESS... Yoga Nidra, also known as “Yogic Sleep,” brings the body into a space of deep relaxation, allowing you to bypass the physical and critical mind and reach deep into the subconscious. A full-body guided meditation prompts the body to relax deeply while the mind remains inwardly alert in that magical time just before you fall asleep, when the body rests while the mind is still lucid. Join us for this unique opportunity to be lulled into a deep and relaxing meditative state while embarking on a subtle exploration of the koshas (layers) of the body. You will begin with pranayama (breath awareness), a healing mantra, and some very gentle and passive floor-based yin and restorative yoga asanas (postures) to prepare your body and mind for meditation. The live sounds of Tibetan and Crystal Bowls and a variety of other healing harmonics will take you on a multifaceted sensory journey designed to induce deep healing and relaxation by flooding the body and mind with layers upon layers of soothing vibration, sound, and energy. You will then sink into stillness for a sublime Yoga Nidra journey. Wear your most comfortable clothes and gather your blankets and pillows and fuzzy socks for this deeply inward healing journey. DATE: Saturday, January 23 TIME: 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. COST TO ATTEND: $25 ***Please arrive early.

Deep Healing Sound Bath

Black Cat Yoga

EXPERIENCE THE HEALING POWER OF SOUND... Our Deep Healing Sound Bath is your opportunity to suspend yourself in timelessness and allow the healing power of sound to transport you to back to your own organic and effortless state of inner spaciousness, harmony, and stillness. Each bowl and every instrument has been hand-picked and intentionally chosen for its own unique sound quality and compelling vibrational energy. When married together, these individual sounds merge to create a symphony of sound that bathes the body in healing energy. This is why we call it a "sound bath." The mind stops discerning and labeling and shifts into a meditative state of being, trusting and releasing, and allowing the body to soften and relax in extraordinary ways. ​Our sound baths are more than just an experience of simply listening to beautiful sounds; they are a multifaceted sensory journey designed to induce deep healing and relaxation by flooding the body and mind with layers upon layers of soothing vibration, sound, and energy. ~ 7 Quartz Crystal Bowls ~ 8 Tibetan Bowls ~ A Large Meditation Gong ~ Bamboo Chimes ~ Ocean Drum ~ Buffalo Drum ~ Native American Flute ~ Japanese Rin Gong ...and so much more! Because of the gentle nature of this meditation event, anyone can participate. DATE: Saturday, February 6 TIME: 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. COST TO ATTEND: $25 ADVANCE REGISTRATION REQUIRED: https://www.blackcatyogajax.com/deep-healing-sound-bath

Love & Devotion - Bhakti Yoga

Black Cat Yoga

SEE THE DIVINE IN EVERYTHING ON THE PATHWAY OF LOVE AND DEVOTION... The Sanskrit word Bhakti comes from the root "bhaj," which translates as “to adore or worship the divine.” This divine energy can be whatever you choose for it to be, something that is deeply personal and sacred to you. Bhakti yoga, just like any other form of yoga, is a path to self-realization and an experience of harmony and oneness with everything, shedding judgment and separation. The path of bhakti yoga cultivates an inner sense of calm and infuses joy, bliss, peace, and knowledge deep into the seat of the soul. Join us for an evening deeply immersed in LOVE and DEVOTION. Kevin and Lisa McCormack will be co-leading this "Yoga of the Heart" experience and uplifting the vibration in the space by offering LIVE MUSIC during practice, featuring harmonium, chanting, Tibetan and Crystal Bowls, and the deep mystical resonance of a large meditation gong. This soulful practice will be a slower-moving and accessible yoga experience that is for EVERYONE! We will explore classical Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations) with extended prostrations (bows of reverence and gratitude). Our practice will overflow with mantras, mudras, pranayama, meditation, affirmations, all with a focused intention on surrendering to the divine as the ultimate expression of bhakti yoga. Please feel free to bring a small item that is sacred to you, something that awakens your heart (stones, crystals, photos, mala beads, etc.). We will be creating a beautiful dedicated space for you to place your special item so that it, too, can receive our loving and compassionate bhakti energy. DATE: Saturday, February 13th TIME: 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. COST TO ATTEND: $25 Please arrive early.
