SOUND IMMERSIONS

A Sound Immersion relaxes the body and promotes deep meditative and rejuvenating states. While reclining and breathing slowly, your body is immersed in a bath of sound as River plays his singing bowls, gongs, shakers, hand pan, and large frame drums. 


YOGA with a PULSE

Accompanied by frame drums, gongs, singing bowls, and/or traditional Indian guitars and occasionally vocals, followed by tea service and refreshments. *A feature tea will be selected by Dobra for each moon.
