Full Moon Yoga Flow: by Jamie Bechtold
My intention is to help people experience more joy in their every day lives. I do this through my passion for sound (especially in the form of gongs) and yoga. I hold sound baths which are concerts with planetary gongs and crystal singing bowls and also combine it with yoga and other healing modalities. I also do private sound healing sessions with gongs, bowls, tuning forks, and voice. I have been doing healing work professionally since 2004 and love every minute of it! I learn more and more every day and am always experimenting and learning new ways that sound can assist in the healing process. I am positive that sound and yoga can help almost everyone live a more joyful, balanced, and peaceful life.
My path in healing began when I took my first Yoga class in 2000. It happened to be a Kundalini class and the teacher played a gong at the end of class. The sound of the gong drew me in and I started going to class just to hear it. A few years later I attended a retreat in Brazil which ignited my love for sound and movement. After the retreat I became a massage therapist and incorporated sound healing in shortly after. I found that the addition of sound to massage deepened the effects tremendously. In 2009 I completed a 200 hr yoga teacher training with Christy Marsden of Yoga Blend and have been teaching "yoga and sound" classes ever since.
I have studied with many amazing teachers and am grateful for everyone of them. I am always looking to further my knowledge of sound, yoga, and the healing arts and each workshop, class, or session I give incorporates all that I have learned. If you have any questions about what I do please do not hesitate to contact me. Have a wonderful day!
