Yoga, Meditation & Sound Healing with Meggan & Mike at Blue Ox

Join Meggan Riley & Mike McGuigan for a yoga, meditation and sound healing session Friday and Saturday morning at 8:30am in the festival bowl.  Meggan will lead students through a gentle and mixed level class designed to prepare body, mind and soul for a day of dancing and connection.  Mike will offer layers of sound healing throughout the practice to compliment movement, breath and the overall practice.  Together, they will guide you on a journey that deeply honors the medicine of movement and sound.  Please bring your mat, towel, water and any other props needed.  Students can come to work hard physically, or simply sit and meditate.  All are welcome!

“Music, Art and Community is a sacred part of my yogic life style!  I teach at various festivals and special events throughout the year in full celebration of our creative and divine spirit.  The festival atmosphere is one of co-creation.  I thrive and am nourished in a co-creative environment.  Colorful souls with spirited attitudes converge from every direction and build a temporary community within which they dance and sing in unity!  Festivals are a truly fulfilling way to celebrate embodiment and express connection to other beings. Come practice with me at Blue Ox!!” – Meggan Riley
