Silence Your Mind with Silent Yoga

It was only a matter of time. Technology for helping curb distractions during yoga. Have you attended a yoga class and found your mind wandering to that barking dog, talking or traffic? Problem solved. Now there’s a way to silence all but your breath, the instructor’s voice and music. Donning SoundOff® noise-canceling, over-the-ear headphones, yogis are attending Silent Yoga classes at Wanderlust Festivals and all over both coasts. Now it’s here in St. Louis.

Silent Yoga by Debby Siegel in Forest Park Aug 12This techie trend for concentration will make its debut at two yoga classes this Saturday, August 12 at Forest Park’s Grand Basin. Find your vinyasa with sound isolating LED headphones at this open air space that has been an iconic backdrop to many a wedding and prom photo shoot in its over 100 years of existence.

Let the sounds of this outdoor space drift from your consciousness and those usual distractions just melt away in either class or both. Dianna Lucas’ Silent Yoga Class 5:30-6:30pm and Debby’s 7-8pm Silent Sunset class are just $16 each or $28 for both.

This Silent Yoga event is produced by Nightchaser and is in addition to their Silent Disco using these SoundOff® headphones on Friday night at Sk8 Liborius, a 127 year old church-turned-skate-park in North St. Louis. Tickets for the Silent Disco and Silent Yoga classes should be pre-purchased online.

Dianna Lucas has been teaching yoga at Forest Park’s Grand Basin weekly throughout the warmer months for nine years now.  Her classes offer inspiration from many traditions and include meditation, intention setting, calling in the elements, and directions, pranayama and appropriately challenging asana. She will be guiding you for a 60-minute class with her music selection from 5:30-6:30pm. Please arrive early and plan to begin and end class on time.

Promptly at 7pm, you’ll travel your mind and body to another dimension with YoGoGirls’ yoga evangelist, Debby Siegel in a 60-minute Silent Cosmic Yoga class set to Chris Powers’ live music on guitar & harmonica.  Eclipse those busy thoughts with their Mindful Metronome, balanced breathwork and transformational movement in a vinyasa flow. No prior yoga experience necessary. A willingness to explore the cosmos of your relaxed mind a plus. Bring a yoga mat, water & you.
