The New Year brings opportunity to reflect, reaffirm our visions and set intentions. It is also this very time of year that we may need to nourish our bodies, decompress and find our center. January brings the harsh winter which often takes a toll on our mind and body.

Learning and practicing self-care practices that can aid in rebalancing and regulating the nervous system. Please join us in creating a space for rejuvenation, relaxation and intention setting.

Jennifer will lead participants on an experiential journey in utilizing sound and our voices for healing (Mantra) and integrating the mind and body into a deep state of relaxation. Please know that you do not need to be a singer or even carry a note to benefit.  There will be time for sharing and discussion as well as a brief introduction to the practice.
