Bobbi Silverstone and Ceci Parrella travel and share their Restorative Yoga and Sound Healing classes at different yoga studios across the USA.
They are each certified as instructors in both Yoga and Integrative Breath Therapy. On Saturday, April 26 from 5:30 – 7 pm, they will be here in Door County at Junction Center Yoga Studio, providing an opportunity to enjoy a unique encounter.
“Experience deep relaxation as layers of tension and stress melt away,” says Bobbi Silverstone. “In this state of relaxation, the body is nurtured and healed from within.”
The poses in their distinctively sensual yoga class are done lying on the floor, using bolsters to support your body. Breath awareness, hot stones, essential oils, singing bowls and drums are added to induce and enhance the process of relaxation and vibrational healing.
Bobbi Silverstone hails from Gladstone, MI where she has been teaching yoga, breathwork and sound therapy for more than 15 years at her home studio.

Yoga Nidra refers to an ancient meditation practice, as well as the state of conscious deep sleep it is said to produce.
“Sleep (nidra) is ignorance, but yoga nidra is the doorway to higher consciousness. It is the means of understanding, integrating and utilizing the various dimensions of our own mind.” – Swami Karmananda Saraswati
Dennis Hawk will lead a shared musical experience known as kirtan, featuring Sanskrit mantras set to fresh melodies and sounds. Kirtan is intended as a holistic healing experience designed to bring participants into a more organic form of meditation, either in stillness or in motion. One of the oldest of sacred sound traditions, Kirtan’s call-and-response chanting involves Satsang, an ancient Sanskrit term that describes the community that exists between an assembly of people who listen to, talk about, and assimilate their impressions of truthfulness.
