Corey Costanzo offered the Didgeridoo Meditation at the Esalen Institute’s famed hot tubs, every Wednesday night from 2003-2008. The acoustics in the space, along with the sound of the waves crashing on the shore below, is an ideal environment for experiencing the profound vibrations of the didgeridoo. Ken Dychtwald, best-selling author of Bodymind writes, “Corey Costanzo’s Didgeridoo Meditation is a transportive experience that has left me feeling deeply connected to the mystery of life. One of the best experiences I’ve ever had at Esalen!” Linda Go offers classes in Restorative Yoga with live sound healing music and Chi-Chair Yoga at studios and private facilities in Buncombe and Madison County, as well as Sound Healing Immersions and Sunday Kirtan with her music duo oSHen for UNCA’s Health and Wellness Dept. Her Sound Yoga playshops are unique offerings of Nada Yoga where she incorporates her lifelong vocal and music experience, shamanic sound healing and soul doula practice, with activating sanskrit chants. Linda has studied Tantric mantra chants and Sanskrit with Russill Paul, author of The Sound of Yoga and has completed Level 1 Sanskrit at American School of Sanskrit. She records and performs with dance-chant group, Bhakti<>Shakti and kirtan duo, oSHen.

Restorative Yoga with Live Music (All Levels, Beginners Welcome)
Fridays from 4:00 to 5:15 pm
Restorative yoga, introduced to many by B.K.S. Iyengar, is an active relaxation practice. With the use of blankets, bolsters, and blocks, the body is put into simple, restful and supportive postures to help reduce muscle tension, relieve stress, help with lymph flow, and induce a relaxed state of being. Restorative yoga is a wonderful practice when you are recovering from illness or injury, to help relieve emotional or physical stress, or to just renew and restore your body at the end of a long day.
The 3-4 poses are maintained for up to 20 minutes each while focusing on the breath and conscious relaxation. During each pose Corey or Linda will guide you in Yoga Nidra meditation or use encouraging words to help to bring you into a state of deep relaxation.
Musically, Corey and Linda team deliver a truly unique “Sound Journey” with didgeridoo, handpan, beautiful vocals and Sanskrit chanting, Celtic harp, acoustic guitar and other lovely instruments that will take you to the “dream state” of deep presence.
