Yoga and Singing Bowl Retreat in Rockland
ROCKLAND — On Saturday, Jan. 19, from 2 to 5 p.m., Taylor Ackerman and Lori LeBlanc will offer a Gentle Yoga and Singing Bowl Retreat.
This event will be an afternoon of gentle yoga, meditation, and sound healing.
Ackerman will invite participants to explore yoga postures and movements that support the body's ability to let go and relax into wellbeing. Periods of meditation will bring deep peace to the mind, according to a news release.
“The studio will be bathed in the therapeutic vibrations of the sacred Tibetan Singing Bowls, inviting us to open our hearts, clear our minds, and enter into a deep well of silence,” said The Dancing Elephant, in the release. “Come as you are and relax into a deep sonic massage.”
Everyone is welcome, including beginners. Suggested donation is $35-50.
The event will take place at The Dancing Elephant, 16 School Street, Rockland. The event is open to the public, with donations gratefully accepted.
Lori LeBlanc is a sound healer and licensed massage therapist since 1994. She is certified in polarity therapy, BioSonic Repatterning, and Tibetan Singing Bowl Therapy. The consecrated seven metal alloy singing bowls she uses were handmade in Nepal more than 100 years ago.
Taylor Ackerman has been practicing yoga since 2008 and was trained in Hatha yoga at Ashiyana Yoga Center in Goa, India in 2011. In her classes, Ackerman encourages awareness and development of a mind-body connection, as well as attention to safety and the cues communicated from the body.
The Dancing Elephant is a community center for yoga, meditation, and art located in downtown Rockland. All programs are donation-based and available for all levels.
