Balancing Arts Yoga and Well Being Studio News!

Namaste!

We are looking forward to seeing you at the studio to join us for yoga, somatics, acupuncture, movement classes, meditation, reiki, our new Vibro-Energy sessions, and more! We will continue to enjoy our classes on the outdoor nature deck when the weather is mild, where you can listen to the birds and the flowing river as you stretch and release.



 

This Month’s Class Schedule: visit this link to see the schedule of our ongoing classes-
 www.balancingartsstudio.com 

New or Improved Classes and Private Offerings:
Classic Yoga:
 Mondays, 6:30 pm. A strength and balance, stretch and release class. Integrating pranayama and meditation. Concluding with Sound Energy (gong, singing bowls…)

Mid Week Meditation/Yoga Nidra/Nada Class: Wednesdays, 6:30-7:30 pm (you must pre-register for this class by txt Sheri in advance-262.719.4633)

Join others who want to develop or advance a meditation practice in this group setting. 

We’ll begin with a calming breathing technique before moving into Yoga Nidra, an ancient practice from the yoga tradition. Yoga Nidra, or “yogic sleep,” is an effortless state of being, experienced in a reclined position, that invites complete physical, mental and emotional  relaxation. With its many profound benefits, we will use it to deepen our practice. 

We will then move into a seated guided meditation, and then a  session of silent meditation. 

Class will conclude with the use of crystal singing bowls, gong baths and other sound/music designed to bring you into complete harmony.   

Accommodates all levels of meditators, including beginners. 

Private Meditation Training: Join Sheri in this one-on-one training where you will learn how to meditate with a step-by-step creative approach based on ancient philosophy and modern research. Sheri will privately teach and guide you  through the Life-Artistry Meditation program that is normally offered in a group setting. Call Sheri for details and to register.

Vibra-Energy Private Sessions 
New to the Studio! Join us for one of our private, Vibro-Energy Sessions! A dynamic fusion of multi modalities that work with vibrations to initiate the body’s natural healing response.  Sound therapy, Reiki, and Vibroacustics are just a part of this relaxing session.   

“When I learned that Sheri was doing vibracoustic (sound and energy) therapy sessions, I signed up!  Now I call it “sonic massage” because, as a practitioner and teacher of massage therapy, I understand the therapeutic benefits of balancing the mind and body on a deep cellular level. Turns out that the research for Sound Energy healing  has  shown many of the same remarkable results from reducing anxiety, pain, heart rate, blood pressure , healing time as well as balancing circulation,  immune response, and brain wave activity. My own personal experience supports those claims! Comfortable, safe, noninvasive, and very effective.” BS

 “Sheri Bestor is the best thing that has ever happened to my writing career. I have studied picture book writing diligently, attended meetings, critique groups and expensive conferences, yet I probed in the dark. Then I found Willow Words and Sheri Bestor. With unexpected warmth and inspiration, Sheri taught me more in one critique letter than I had learned in all my previous study combined. Furthermore, she has demonstrated a sincere interest in my development as a writer and individual.Thanks, Sheri for turning on the lights and taking an interest in my work.”
