Free Yoga and Sound Healing at Bodytree to celebrate the International Day of Yoga

Let’s celebrate the International Day of Yoga together at Bodytree Studio. 

Bodytree Studio International Yoga Day

The word ‘yoga’ in Sanskrit means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness. The International Day of Yoga was launched in 2015 by the United Nations and is celebrated on 21 June from London to New York with the aim to raise awareness worldwide of the many benefits of practicing yoga. Bodytree Studio has created a program for the day full of fantastic yoga and health events, including a free 2-hour class with two celebrated instructors Joelle Beyrouhty and Sonia Carolina Gonzalez.

In this session together we will transcend the body through 108 guided sun salutations followed by a calming sound healing practice. There are many benefits to practicing 108 Sun Salutations. The series of movements warms up the body and activate Prana, the upward energy, to benefit you from cleansing, detoxifying, and gets you more in touch with yourself. 108 might sound like a lot, but the number has long been considered a sacred number in Hinduism and yoga. Traditionally, malas, or garlands of prayer beads, come as a string of 108 beads plus one for the “guru bead” around which the other 108 beads turn like the planets around the sun. The 21 June also marks the beginning of the summer solstice, a time when days get longer influencing our sun energy, which makes it a perfect time to practice sun salutations to honor our sun energy and relax completely to the healing frequencies of magical sounds.
In addition to this special free session Bodytree Studio has more to offer on the day, including Light Body Activation workshop with Neli, Lara and Sonia to activate the chakras and balance the body’s energies; and a whole day training for instructors and advanced practitioners with Emilie Mikulla: The Roll Model – Science of Rolling.
