MIDWEEK MINDFULNESS - Sound Bath Meditation
MIDWEEK MINDFULNESS - Sound Bath MeditationJun 9 6:00 PM - 6:45 PM, 2021
Throughout life we encounter so many stressful situations that can affect us physically and emotionally. With vibrational sounds and mindfulness meditation practice we can help increase focus and reduce daily life stressors we face everyday.
With deep relaxation through soothing, resonant sound, the body is affected on a cellular level, opening up the flow of energy to move us back toward vibrational alignment with health. Sound can help us shift our energy frequency from lower to higher, removing the lower frequencies of emotions such as fear, anger, and resentment.
Hone in on your ability to focus. Allow a better connection between yourself and others.
Led by Urban Yoga Foundation founder Ghylian Bell.
All programming at the museum will be socially distant and all participants, including facilitators, will be masked.
Special mindfulness workshops – including dance/movement, visual art, and storytelling- that engage with these works in longer and richer ways are forthcoming.

About Ghylian Bell
Ghylian Bell founder and director of The Urban Yoga Foundation began her yoga journey in New York practicing the Asthanga tradition in 1994 with Eddie Stern at Yoga Shambala. Bell moved on to the ISTHA practice with Allan Finger, Heart Of Yoga practice with Mark Whitwell and also trained with Maju Jois son of Patabbi Jois. When introduced to the teaching methods of Tao Porch Lynch and Kemetic yoga teacher Yiser Ra Hotep Bell deepened her practice even more. With her focus now on fusing the indigenous practices of Kemetic Hatha and Tao lineages Ghylian knew that she needed to bring this knowledge forward to the communities she serves.
In November 2007, Ghylian founded the Urban Yoga Foundation, a 501c non-profit with the purpose to create yoga and mindfulness programs that specifically target the needs of students of color as well as create a platform for teachers of color to teach in their community so that communities may reclaim self -love and healing practices founded in a mindful culture. The Urban Yoga Foundation serves all who are seeking a path to wellness.
