P.S. Colleen, Aileen, and I are really excited for this training as it will be the last one until 2020. Yep that's right!

So with that said, we are encouraging you all to sign up for this up coming training with a little extra incentive. For those of you who can pay in full before December 1, Spectra Yoga will buy your books and some other materials for the training. Total cost will be $2,750.

Sound Meditation:New Monthly Class!

Dear Spectra Community,

Last night marked the inaugural Sound Meditation class led solely by Christian Reid. The class was maxed out the day before and we had people on the waiting list!

I was one of the lucky students and I have to say that it was such a beautiful, full-sensory experience as I had never experienced a sound bath at this level before. Laying on the floor and allowing my body to feel the vibrations of the various instruments allowed me to relax, open up to being with myself in peace, and provided the most epic sleep and vivid dreams possible. 

Due to such a high demand, Christian's Sound Meditation will be offered on the 3rd Sundays of each month starting on March 19th from 6:45-8:00 pm.

Pre-registration is highly recommended. Cost $10 Spectra Members & $15 Non-Members

See you on the mat,
