Connection, Vibration, Life Force Energy We chose the Aspen Tree because of what it represents. When you see a forest of Aspen trees - it is likely they are all one large organism, sharing a single root system, connecting each tree to every other. Their leaves always seem to be vibrating, moving with the wind and movements of the earth.
We are like Aspen in many ways - all part of one large energy field - and as such can feel and affect each other with our own vibrations. Aspen Tree Yoga & Wellness recognizes this as truth, and honors the connections we all share as one large tribe that lives on this one planet we call home.
Vibrational Sound Therapy
This therapy is used to invoke a deep relaxation response, similar to what can be achieved with deep meditation. This is achieved through the use of Himalayan singing bowls and other healing instruments such as chimes, tuning forks, drums, gongs, and crystal singing bowls. Clients frequently experience reduced stress, increased focus and mental clarity, and improved sleep.
Yoga taps into the amazing ability of the body to heal itself. Aspen Tree Yoga & Wellness provides individual and group classes that guide practitioners into internal dialog with their own bodies, invoking compassion and belief in oneself that comes through a practice of emotional and physical alignment.
Vibrational Sound Therapy (VST)
Personalized sound therapy sessions that invoke deep relaxation. During a VST session the body will go through noticeable changes as it responds to deeper and deeper states of rest. Relaxation is not only a physical state but also a state of consciousness, and VST has very strong effects on alertness and perception. Relaxation during a VST session brings on the same kind of brain states as yoga, tai chi, and meditation.
Personal Yoga Classes
Providing gentle sequences for individual practitioners who may not want to attend a public class, and theme based activities for private groups such as brunch parties, book clubs, or birthdays.
Sound Baths and Workshops
Applying sound healing concepts and instruments in a group setting along with gentle stretching that leads you through the various levels of your being (physical, energetic, mental, emotional, and spiritual).
Group Therapy Support
Trauma Informed Yoga and/or Healing Sound Therapy - Aimed at individuals or groups working through trauma and/or adolescent issues.
Scheduled classes in public locations and private classes held in your location as needed.
Judy’s love of yoga shines through her classes. She patiently explained the poses and provides a calming spirit. She recognizes that we all have unique abilities yet I felt very comfortable sharing this space with others. It was a joy to attend her classes and I left them feeling both energized and peaceful.
