Sound Healing

Join Justine Sanderson and Jay Robinson for this 90 minute Sound Bath featuring Didgeridoo, Sitar, Gongs, Shruti Box and Crystal Singing Bowls. A gentle yet powerful experience for the mind and body. Each Didgeridoo Sitar Sound Bath is a one of a kind and inspiring opportunity for personal growth, reflection and calmness as your whole being is immersed in sound and bathed with vibrations. 

Didgeridoo Sitar Sound Baths begin with each person lying down comfortably. After a few moments of guided focus on the breath and group unifying sounds, the remainder of the experience is filled with different sounds and frequencies being introduced and resonated through many unique instruments and tones played with intention, love and compassion.

Thank You

Happy Birthday Buddha Rider

I wanted to take a few minutes today to sit down and soak it all in. It’s often hard for me to be in the moments that make my heart full. I find it uncomfortable to hear the praise from people and it overwhelms to to take credit for anything that has transpired at Buddha Rider. Truth be told… I don’t give myself enough credit. It’s so much easier to give it than receive it. So today, I stop, pause and recognize that I am part of the Buddha Rider culture. That after 11 years we are still creating, building and supporting a community. I thank each and everyone one of you. The teachers who show up everyday sharing their gifts, Kim who takes care of the back end of the business, the karma exchange volunteers who spare their time and YOU, the clients who show up day after day. It reminds me that no matter what we are all in this together. 

So thank you, thank you, thank you. 

Big Love, Shirlee

Simply Somatics – NEW CLASS

Somatics (in the Thomas Hanna tradition) means sensing the body from the inside out. You will find this class to be very relaxing and enjoyable. You will learn slow, gentle, relaxing self-care movements that are suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Movements are designed to relieve pain and tension, improve posture, reduce stress, increase range of motion, prevent injuries, and warm up and cool down from workouts.
You’ll lie on the floor on a mat, alternating between lying on your back, side, and stomach. The educator leading the class will verbally teach you the movements rather than demonstrate. By not demonstrating the movements it encourages an internal learning process. You can make changes in your nervous system more effectively and efficiently when you focus completely on your internal sensations.
