First Friday Sound Bath

First Friday Sound Bath is a 30 minute sound bath experience with the Centers music therapist, Timothy Doak. Sound baths are a meditative experience of deep listening and being “bathed” in sound’s vibrations from various musical instruments. Timothy will lead you into a meditative music space on the First Friday of each month from 5-5:30pm on Zoom. If you can’t attend, it will be available on the Center’s YouTube (https://bit.ly/2NXKtTS) after the conclusion of the sound bath. To register for the event, email wellbeing@lgbtqcenter.org for the Zoom link.

Vinyasa Yoga Flow

Vinyasa yoga is a flowing practice with a focus on synchronizing the breath and continuous flow of movement within the body. This class will help cultivate being in the present moment and focus on physical and mental well-being. These classes will feature several elements of traditional yoga—sun salutations, standing poses, preparation for arm balances & backbends, with focus on gaze point guided by a steady breath. Our goal together will be to bring about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. In an effort to protect the safety of our community, we are asking those interested in participating to register before the group.
To join the group, please email Timothy Doak (t.doak@lgbtqcenter.org) or text 845-481-3419 with your name and email address.
