Set the intention this fall equinox to restore! Join Sound Healer Mike McGuigan and Moksha Yoga Teacher Sarah Lindgren for a night of full body and mind relaxation.
Here Mike and Sarah pair the powerful healing tools of sound and restorative asana to create a space of deep relaxation. This will open the door for you to experience a profound sense of peace and release from chronic tension.
Sound has a powerful effect on how we feel throughout the day. Whether our conscious minds are paying attention or not, our bodies take cues from these sounds. Often in this fast paced western culture we live in a heightened state of fight or flight. This can trigger the release of stress hormones and creates an environment of dis-ease.
Vibrational therapy and restorative yoga have been shown to ease depression, reduce stress, clear sinuses, boost the immune system and can even help those with chronic inflammation recover more quickly, all while creating a deep sense of wellbeing.
Mike and Sarah first met at the yoga and music festival, Sukhava Bodhe in 2016. Since then they have been looking forward to joining forces to bringing these healing tools together and into the studio. In 2014 Mike completed training with the Vibrational Sound Association. Mike then began his career as Sound Therapist and Sound Healer using a variety of vibrational instruments and healing modalities including Reiki. Sarah began teaching yoga in 2015, with certification through Moksha Yoga. Sarah now teaches in and around the Chicagoland area offering classes and workshops designed to promote whole being wellness.
Sarah states her intention for teaching yoga – “I wish to live in a world where people practice compassion, experience communicating face to face, believe in the power of peace, and enjoy the beauty of real food. I hope to teach people how to nurture themselves through these practices so they can truly love the life they live.”
Sarah began practicing yoga in 2006 while she was expecting her first daughter. She states “my initial experience of self love and fully being present in the body, even with all of the crazy changes was truly profound! Since then I have found that a practice guided by my own intuition and the principals of the 8 limb path of yoga provides me with a deeper understanding of myself. I have also found this intuitive focus allows for a greater connectivity to those around me. I practice and teach because yoga gives you permission to be yourself, uncovered, and beautifully raw. I love the honesty of the yoga practice and how it demands self acceptance, which is truly the heart of this practice.”
As a yoga teacher, Sarah has been teaching since the summer of 2015, gaining 200 hour certification in 2016 from Moksha Yoga Center in Chicago, completing the program with more than 700 hours of training. She continues to enjoy learning about this practice and developing creative and challenging sequences as well as workshops relatable to students. My mission as an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher is to help make the world of yoga more accessible to all students through my classes and YACEP workshops. Showing them this is a practice to access the language of the heart not about touching your toes.
When Sarah is not meditating, or playing on her yoga mat you can find her in the garden, exploring Illinois with her family and whipping up tasty and nutritious food.
She can’t wait to meet you on the mat and together cultivate a more compassionate, judgeless, and honest community through the practice of yoga.
