Yoga, meditation and breath-work practitioner Jenn Parma’s “High Vibration Breathwork” seminar, slated for 7-9:30 pm on Friday, January 17, at Yoga Soup, is an invitation to bathe in the vibrational sounds of various medicine songs, crystal singing bowls and chimes. The class aims to activate your energy body and bring balance to your chakras through breath-work, toning, movement and positive affirmations, resulting in raising your vibration, moving stuck emotions, and disempowering beliefs and old stories to create space for deeper connection to your higher self. Parma’s breathing system is meant to clear the physical body of blocked stuck or lower vibration energy at the cellular level and instead utilize a full, free and flowing breath to embody your highest potential. The workshop costs $35 in advance, $40 day-of… Suzanne Marlow, M.A.,LMFT and Hannah Fries, LA.c, team up at the Soup again to teach “Embracing Your Demons,” 2-4 pm on Saturday, January 18. The workshops integrate the Tibetan Buddhist practice of Chod, through Lama Tsultrim Allione’s method, Feeding Your Demons – perceived as anything that drains your energy and blocks you from being completely alive and awake – and will include meditation, visualization, and creative psychosomatic processing as well as acupuncture ($40)…

The afternoon of meditation and yoga dedicated to finding the courage, pathways, and clarity needed to embrace this life with love was created with the premise that there is no healing without heartwork as well as intimately tending to our bodies, our hearts and our minds.
