Reset & Reboot: Sound Bath & Community Acupuncture
w/ Taochemy & Alexandra Grimm
June 2, 2023
Join Alexandra Grimm + Kylie Burfeind, RN of Taochemy in a transformative sound healing + acupuncture collaboration. Kylie uses Taochemy’s evidence based five points acupuncture technique to reset your nervous system, promote detox, and enhance your awareness to the healing vibrations provided by instruments used in sound healing. The combination of acupuncture + sound healing creates a synchronization of brain waves that puts the body into a state of relaxation and healing. Sterile needles will be inserted in your ears, top of the head and third eye (between eyebrows) while sound healing instruments are played.

A fun-filled afternoon of 2 of our favorite things: yoga and little furry babies!
Join Lisa for this special event to help support the local cat rescue group, Dallas Cat Lady.
There will be lots of little *adoptable* kittens and adolescent cats frolicking around the studio. Bringing fostered cats into a playful environment helps to socialize them and allows them to show their true personalities. We will incorporate play and cuddles into an easy-going, joy-filled gentle class.
Dallas Cat Lady's mission to reduce the homeless cat population through fostering, adoptions and trap-neuter-release in the Dallas area. They work with local shelters in fostering kittens and cats that need a little extra time to find the right home. All donations from this event will go to support their efforts.

with Emilee Hamilton
Sunday, July 16
1 - 3pm, Austin Ranch Studio
Want to explore a new perspective of yoga? Join Emilee for an introduction on how to invert (go upside down into yoga poses) safely and steadily. Get a step by step approach, learn alternatives, variations, and the reasons why being upside down can be good for your body and mind.
Gain confidence in the foundations of Headstand so that you feel empowered to plug into this dynamic, yet calming posture. Then we will explore the similarities to Forearm Balance and Handstand.

We will warm up key muscle groups and use the wall while learning the foundations to put our feet up in the sky. Emilee will be hands-on providing assistance and adjustments when needed and wanted.
