ABOUT MY CLASS

sound bath
Sound is one of the most ancient, effective, and accessible tools we have for healing. The human body is designed to interact with and embody sound in a powerful way that allow you to rest and revitalize your body, mind and spirit. Lay back, let the tones of the bowls wash over you, and drop into a state of relaxation through a guided sound meditation. Depart class feeling recharj’ed and renewed.

Crystal bowls: This sound bath features a variety of quartz crystal bowls that correlate with the main chakras in the body to realign your energy and recharge your vitality.

yoga nidra
This guided sleep meditation is a lucid state of consciousness between waking and sleeping. Nothing else is required of you but to lay back and listen as your body is completely relaxed and becoming systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions.

de-stress
Discover how to relax the nervous system, reduce stress, and reframe the brain’s bias to hold onto negativity. In this session, we connect mind, body and brain, through deep breathing, mindfulness and guided visual meditation, activating the relaxation response and bringing ourselves back to equilibrium.

Unwind and unpack the day with de-stress meditation that aims to attune your awareness to your senses. Focus on body functions such as breath and pulse can be cultivated to bring us back to homeostasis through the power of the mind. Drop your cortisol levels; regulate pulse and adrenals; increase your sense of calm and ease so you can enjoy the pleasures of life.

mindfulness
Attuned awareness is the first stage to cultivating a life experience of ease and contentment. The ability to fully notice our surroundings and our relationship to them is a skill that can be refined through the practice of mindfulness meditation. Reawaken to the internal and external experiences of the present moment through practices that cultivate awareness, self-regulation, and the capacity for presence.

The practice of mindful awareness has a variety of well-documented impacts, including a reduction in toxic stress, an increase in emotion regulation, and an improvement in sustained attention, focus and executive functioning.

Paige also leads the following monthly rotating workshops:

  • Yoga Nidra
  • The Art of Listening
