RIYogafestGong Bath at the first annual Rhode Island Yoga Festival

…with Gongmaster Joy Quinn Blum and Drumsinger A. Michelle.

After over 6 years of thought and planning, local yoga teacher Chris Belanger wanted to create an annual event celebrating the RI yoga community and its many offerings. The time is now! The first annual Rhode Island Yoga Festival will happen at the

Smithfield Community Center
Smithfield, RI
Saturday, April 6, 2013
8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
GONG BATH at 1:00 p.m.

Come join us to unite the body, breath, mind and soul as the RI Yoga Festival brings together an eclectic mix of people, yoga teachers, styles and yoga related practices from right here in Southern New England.

All of the classes and teachers at this year’s festival have been selected to show the diversity of yoga in our tiny state.  It’s an opportunity to try new methods, or revisit a teacher you have not seen in a while.   It’s a building block for the area’s yoga community, its teachers, practitioners and businesses.  Chris’ vision is to grow with each year, saying hello to new students but also to see familiar faces, and continue to offer even more diversity in class offerings.  On Saturday, participants can choose from 8 different yoga styles, experience kirtan, a gong bath and a walking meditation.

**GONGMASTER JOY is the sacred sound healing artist playing the Gongs of Joy! She played the gongs with The Resonant Voices of the Spheres for 6 years, and was a co-founding member of the original ensemble. Joy's teacher, Grand Gongmaster Don Conreaux, has been an inspiration and guide in helping her follow the Way of the Gong. Joy offers gong baths, private gong healing sessions, workshops, and other rituals in the southern New England area. ** In January of 2013, Joy and A. MICHELLE of Drumsong decided to become partners and join together in creating healing vibrations. A. Michelle channels sacred sound in harmony with a variety of indigenous instruments including Native American flutes, rattles and drums.**The women believe that by combining the sounds of the gongs and singing bowls with those of the indigenous drums, rattles, flutes and chanting, they create a blissful harmonic attunement for physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. These vibrational overtones create and hold a space where emotional stress release, chakra alignment, clearing of energy blocks and spontaneous healing is possible.
