Relaxation with Pati Pellerito

No experience needed, this group session begins with an insight meditation, simply sitting with awareness of the present moment. Easing tension or discomfort in the body by utilizing the breath and very gentle movement, we prepare to lie back and allow the sounds and harmonies to wash through our body.

The multitudinous sounds and waves of soothing Tibetan Singing Bowls, Planetary Gongs, many other percussive and acoustic instruments offer nutrition for the neurological system as well as medicine for the soul. Many describe this experience transcendent and transportive, as the sounds encourage a mind-altering, shift in consciousness. One that supports a restful and rejuvenating experience, a journey into essence. 

“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

Saul David Raye

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!
