Private and Small Group Meditation/Amrit Yoga with Brad
Developed by Yogi Amrit Desai, founder of Kripalu Yoga, Amrit Yoga is a highly refined ancient yogic technique that is a gentle meditative practice appropriate for all levels of students; from first time to advanced. By exploring yogic philosophy, the inner dimensions of yoga are revealed through focused intention and integrated awareness. The practice integrates the "doing" of the postures with the quiet inner stillness of "Being" within yourself. Witness consciousness is used as a primary tool to experience the intelligence of the body leading to an innate inner stillness. The meditative qualities of the Amrit Yoga method, allows the natural balance & integration of body, mind, heart and soul. The practice awakens an experiential sense of connecting to the source of deep relaxation and inner peace which abides within us all. Please contact Brad directly for times and prices.

Sheri is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Yoga Alliance 200 hr Registered Yoga Instructor. Sheri practiced for her own stress relief and mind body connections for 5 years before seeing how much Yoga and the art of counseling intersected. Yoga changed the way Sheri counseled bringing in more balance, unity and kindness into her therapeutic practice with individuals and couples. After feeling a desire to learn and teach Yoga, Sheri joined the 200 hr program and The Lotus Pond in Tampa, FL. The Lotus Pond Program brings in multiple teachers from around the country who have had the honor of working along such founders of Yoga as Iyengar and teachers who are in masters degree programs from Harvard in Mindfulness. The teaching at the Lotus Pond was invaluable and married counseling and yoga together beautifully. Sheri will be teaching Hatha Yoga at a level that everyone can participate and will also be teaching Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra ® , which she is certified and trained to instruct. Yoga Nidra is a practice done while lying down in a comfortable position and being guided in meditation. Sheri's hope, through Serenity Wellness Services, is to bring balance to the mind and body to all who navigate through the day to day stress that today's busy lifestyles bring. Namaste.
