Music has a way of deepening our experience, of helping us drop into spaces not always accessible. We will be serenaded by the sounds of the cello while holding restorative postures that will cultivate feeling groundedness, feeling rooted, steady, and stable. This will be supported by breathing techniques and a grounding nidra practice to close. Open to all levels and experience.
