What we're about

Open to all levels, including beginners. A regular yoga practice can help alleviate various physical ailments, increases energy while promoting deep relaxation, and improves focus and concentration.

There's an idea that "in commitment there is freedom." It seems counter-intuitive, but if you commit to a regular practice, within that dedication to your self-development and growth you find a system that has boundless potential, and in there lies freedom.

The offerings in this group focus on concentration, meditation, mantra, sound healing and more. All classes at this time are offered by myself, Sandy Naimou.

We lean in to the physical to learn to go beyond it.

Here are some of the offerings, but pay attention to weekly meetup events for the most current information:

YOGA NIDRA: DEEP RELAXATION WITH CRYSTAL BOWL SOUND IMMERSION

SUNDAY MORNINGS: RESTORE & STRENGTHEN

YOGA IN THE PARK: Energetic when it's cooler outside, a bit slower when it's hot outside. Slow Flow practice open to all levels.

DRUM CIRCLE - see www.creativeenergyyoga.com for more info

SLOW DOWN RESTFUL SUNDAY EVENINGS: (not currently offered) A more relaxing slower practice though it might start off energetically, then we wind down the weekend and prepare calm energy for the week. The teacher has more liberty to be creative with the slow flow yoga practice than with Ashtanga, guiding you through various postures and breathwork. We practice in a circle. Live singing bowls will complete your practice as you rest.

YOGA ON THE BEACH: (not currently offered) Yesss..... Water and sand.

ASHTANGA (not currently offered): Follows the same structure every week, but the longer you stick with it the more results you will see and the more postures you can explore as new ones are introduced. The goal is to train body/mind to know the flow so that you eventually experience moving meditation.

The sequence begins with sun salutations, standing postures, balancing postures, seated postures, lying down postures and inversions, and ends with a long rest or meditation to the sounds of live singing bowls.

Online event

Take a break with me on Wednesdays from 11 - 11:30 am.
It's a great time to hit the refresh button! 😅

I'm on the computer most of the day so I personally really enjoy taking this little "time out." Open to any level of experience though directions might go a little quicker with this shorter class. We often start by chanting OM to come back to the Source. You'll also hear live sounds of crystal singing bowls and bamboo chimes while you rest at the end of class.

Full Moon Humming | Online Vocal Sound Healing & Meditation

Online event
$20/registration
(Registration will be open soon)

To register: https://www.sandynaimou.com/healing-voice-workshop
(You will get the zoom link once fully registered)

Experiential group sessions using the voice for healing & meditation in the privacy of our own homes. Each session focuses on a specific practice, such as chanting, humming, toning, or singing.

There is power inherent in the sound
of each sacred voice.

The voice carries the power of prana, life force in Sanskrit. The voice itself is the breath, a major vehicle through which prana travels. The voice is sacred. When we discover the power of the voice, we use it with more respect than ever before, recognizing it's ability to create positive change and act as a guide and aide on our spiritual journeys.

These online session are about reconnecting ourselves with the sacred voice and putting it to use, as it has always meant to be done, as an offering to the Divine.

We will share in various practices:

-We'll begin class with a brief explanation about a fundamental concept about sound, voice, music therapy, the efficacy of vocalization in physical and energetic effects, or a given spiritual practice​

-Engage in a brief exercise/technique for healthy vocalization to open the voice and breathe properly

​-Work with the throat chakra (the energy center in the throat)

​-Focus on a specific practice, such as:

-The phonetics of the Sanskrit language

-Chanting of seed sounds - "Bija Mantra"

-Overtone Singing - Deep voice chanting

-Humming

-Toning with an instrument

-And other practices that I've learned over the years and new practices that I'm introduced to

​-Have a period of silence for meditation where we can experience the vibrations that we generated

Each session will be recorded and sent to those who registered within 24 hours.
