Gong Meditation and Gong Nap.

Martha Collard, Founder of Red Doors Studio in Hong Kong and catalyst for emotional wellbeing is visiting Ottawa and surround  in November to offer deep relaxation to the sound of meditation gongs and kundalini yoga workshops.  She is fresh from the Global Wellness Summit in Singapore where she shared her gifts with the the hotel and spa industry.  Her goal is to increase vibration all over the world largely through offering what you need most, a good nap.

Martha’s Schedule At Rideau Sports Centre:

Thursday November 14th, 2019

Gong Bath: 12:00 – 12:45pm
Take a break for a pause that refreshes and join us for a mid-day deep relaxation pick-me-up to the sound of meditation gongs.  This is designed to give you maximum benefit in only 30 minutes. A perfect way to infuse an energy boost into your work day. Taking a gong bath is easy – and that’s one of its appeals. You don’t have to do anything except lie down and close your eyes. In a way, it is a fast track to relax and renew, perfect for those with limited time who wish maximum impact.

Saturday November 16th, 2019

Raindrop Essential Oil Massage and Gong: 1:30 – 2:30pm
Indulge your senses using Young Living’s proprietary Raindrop Technique® combining self foot massage with pure, authentic essential oils for a deeply harmonizing, rejuvenating, and relaxing experience.  By layering a sequence of specified oils your body relaxes, aligns and readjusts itself.  You will massage your own feet followed by a 45 minute deep relaxation to the sound of gongs.

Bliss Women’s Gong and Social: 3:00 – 5:00pm
Feel your feminine energy rising through a special women’s self care circle incorporating kundalini yoga for the body, essential oils for the mind and of course laughter and shared food for the spirit. A evening of transformation and connection to your Self and others.

Kundalini and Gong for Deep Sleep: 7:30 – 9:00pm
This particular session will be directed towards improving symptoms of chronic fatigue and insomnia.
In this session you will be guided through Kundalini Yoga followed by deep relaxation to the sound of a meditation gong. The sound of the gong induces a state of spontaneous meditation and relaxation, which facilitates the movement of chi or prana(positive life force) throughout the body.

Luke Letourneau!

Our live music guest this Friday November 8th is Luke Letourneau!

About Luke:
Luke Letourneau has been in and out of the acting business since he was the tender age of 6 years old. His first big job as a working actor was in the feature film “The Day After Tomorrow”. While Luke was in high school he developed a love for both theatre and music. He would go to drama class during the day and play piano and sing at night (after he had done his homework of course!). He got the chance to put the two together when he was in his first musical: Canterbury High School’s production of Godspell. Along with acting, Luke also enjoys playing his original music at various pubs in Toronto.
