A restorative practice where poses are held for periods of 3 to 5 minutes. Working with the breath and gravity, the poses are held at an appropriate tension, which is personal to you and your body. The connective tissues are gently eased apart and untangled, working to bring back the nourishing mobility of the joints, and lengthening of the muscles. The practice calms the mind, restores the flow of energy through the organs, muscles and full body, and helps to diminish stress levels by discharging tensions that have built up in our bodies and become locked into our tissue.

Moving meditation is a meditative state – a shift of consciousness – while doing simple movements. It is a way of calming the mind and creating awareness. Beginning in a comfortable seated asana, the yogi brings awareness to the breath and to the hands. As the meditation deepens, the yogi feels energy flowing into the hands. Gradually, the hands are lifted and moved ever so slightly, while each sensation is observed. Eventually, the palms are turned toward each other and the yogi observes and feels the energy between them.
In the West, the Gong Bath is most associated with singing bowls. In addition to relaxing the body and mind, a gong bath can balance the chakras by utilizing specific sound vibrations. For example, the vibrations of a C note are thought to target the root chakra, while those of an F note open the heart chakra.

Integral yoga, sometimes called Supramental yoga, is a type of yoga based on the teachings of Swami Satchidananda. Known for saying, “Truth is one, paths are many”, he encouraged students to combine elements of various other yoga practices in order to find a path that suited them and find harmony in their whole lives. The name, Integral yoga, also refers to the way that it brings together the mind, body and spirit to help the student find a place of greater unity and peace.
