  • Vinyasa Vortex: Guests can stretch and strengthen with this invigorating breath and movement-focused session. This session guides participants through reconnecting to the body, mind, and breath and releasing into a bliss-filled relaxation.

This session begins with a brief discussion of primordial sound healing and moves into a few simple practices of toning and mantra. Guests achieve a deep relaxation and chakra balance through the sounds of seven native flats tuned to the seven main energy centers of the body.
  • Customized Meditation: Visitors can enhance their current practices and/or learn new methods to promote personal relaxation and wellbeing. Methods taught include guiding imagery, pranayama (a breath control technique) and sound healing.
