Sound, Restorative Postures, Meditation ~ with Kris Harris
Brainwave entrainment refers to the capacity of the brain to naturally synchronize its brainwave frequencies with the rhythm of sound stimuli. Entrainment soundtracks are used to induce various physical/mental states, such as relaxation, creativity, focus, boosting of serotonin levels, and an overall feeling of wellness and readiness for life, by creating stimuli that occur at regular, periodic intervals to mimic electrical cycles of the brain during the desired states, thereby "training" the brain to consciously alter states.
We'll use gentle brainwave entrainment tracks, simple, bolster-happy restorative postures, gentle breath, and meditation to soothe the system back to a place of harmony, ease, and upliftment. no strain here, just rest.

Introduction to Meditation & Pranayama
Have you always wanted to learn meditation & breathing techniques? In this class, Luke White (Registered Yoga Instructor & Wim Hof Method Instructor), will introduce the art of pranayama and a basic meditation practice geared toward body awareness. All are welcome: Those who are interested in either beginning a meditation/pranayama practice or expanding on an existing one.
Through subtle movement and breathwork, non-attachment exercises & being in the HereNow, Luke has a wonderful class in store. He also has a few fun & creative ways to challenge ones state of presence. Who says meditation can't be fun?! There is time allotted for any Q & A, discussion regarding meditation & feedback. Namaste.
About Luke & His practice:
Luke’s first teacher was his first love: Nature. As a young child, being in the wild allowed him to appreciate the silence within himself. The teachings of nature, specifically the movements of wind and ocean, continued to inspire him as he began a two-year Okinawan Karate practice at the age of 9. Like a river flowing into the ocean, this practice flowed into a more general interest in movement and martial arts; when he was 15, he studied Warangdo Combat Jiu-Jitsu for 10 years and shared the practice as a teacher for 2 years. Around the time that he began his Jiu-Jitsu training, Luke started pranayama and meditation practices in hopes of balancing his lifelong asthma that challenged his very active lifestyle. His exploration in breath continues to this day. He will be training in the Master Course of the Wim Hoff Method of Innerfire Breathing and Ice Bath Training this fall. Luke also has trained in Fighting Monkey, Reiki, Qigong, and Kettle bells. Most recently, he has immersed himself in yoga and acro yoga, receiving his 200-hour teacher training through Asheville Yoga Center (AYC) in December 2015. Additionally, he earned his 500-hour certification in Yoga. Most recently, he has completed a certification in the Wim Hof Method. In teaching, he hopes to share the path to stillness that he uncovered through movement.
