– – – –

Deepen your connection to your breath, body, emotions, and thoughts with a short meditation in the beautiful Sunken Gardens. This will be followed by a 20 minute mindful walk through the gardens, a gentle yoga practice (beginners welcome) and a relaxing Crystal Bowl Sound Bath led by Vandana Dillon.

Vandana Dillon (E-RYT 200) has been guiding yoga & meditation in Tampa Bay for 16 years. And throughout the US with the world renowned Humanitarian Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (Amma) . She has led five RYT200 Teacher Trainings and currently teaches as Awaken 2 Yoga and Awaken 2 Yoga Retreats in the beautiful Sunken Gardens. She also leads workshops and wellness retreats in Yoga Nidra, Sound Healing, Reiki and Women’s Empowerment. She is the Founder of the St Pete Yoga Fest and the President of the Florida Yoga Teachers Association.

The 100-year-old Sunken Gardens is a historic gem and home to some of the oldest tropical plants in the region. We will wander through a living collection of more than 50,000 tropical plants and flowers complete with cascading waterfalls and see the lowest part of the garden where it is “sunken” – literally 15 feet below sea level.

Our guided meditation and gentle Hatha Yoga practice will bring us into our bodies so we can become more self-aware and make more conscious decisions on how to live our lives.

The sound bath at the end will consist of students lying in Savasana (on your back on a yoga mat), being guided into deep relaxation by the instructor. Once in this relaxed state the crystal singing bowls will immerse your body and mind with vibration and frequency. These tones will send healing to your immune system, increase mental and emotional clarity, help calm over activity, and balance the chakras. The event will close with discussion and oracle messages.

It is recommended that you bring your yoga mat, blanket, and an optional covering for your eyes.
