2020 was a very challenging year on our bodies and mind. While Covid isn’t yet behind us, the vaccine will eventually bring a better sense of normalcy, Until then, let’s focus on our mind, body, and spirit with Serenity Yoga.
Start the New Year with Nice Calming Meditation
The new year brings a new service available at Serenity Wellness – Your Sarasota CBD & More Store. On Wednesday, Jan 6th at 6:30 pm, we will offer our first yoga class in our Downtown Sarasota store at 1459 Main St. This inaugural yoga class will be a Sound Bath instructed by Roxann Beckner.
A Sound Bath is a meditative session where the participants are “bathed” in sound waves. These sound waves are produced by various sources such as gongs, singing bowls, percussion, chimes, rattles, tuning forks, and the human voice. Sound Baths contribute to deep relaxation. They help reduce anxiety and stress which helps with sleep, digestion and memory. Click here to learn more about the benefits of sound healing.
Roxann Beckner-Yoga Instructor
Yoga practice brings balance and restores your mind, body and spirit. My Yoga training is built around Hatha Yoga which originated from a lineage in Calcutta, India. As we strengthen the body and calm the mind, we open ourselves up for a transformational experience. Her yoga journey started 7 years ago in Ft Lauderdale, FL. She has completed 400 hours of yoga training including 200 hours of Hot Yoga with the one and only Jimmy Barkan.
Her personal pursuit of finding self love and self healing brought her to study Watsu-water massage in Costa Rica where she was introduced to Sound Healing. Sound healing blends the best of modern science with ancient wisdom to effectively bring harmony and balance to mind, body and spirit. Sound healing works on the principle that everything in our universe is energy which is a vibration. The frequency at which we normally vibrate is called Resonance. Certain sounds will resonate with different organs and parts of the body. Sound has been scientifically proven to have an effect on our autonomic, immune and endocrine systems as well as the neuropeptide transmitters in our brain. She studied with the International Sound Healing Academy.
Due to Covid regulations, space is limited. Everyone will have enough space between them to be socially distanced. This being said, the class is FREE. We are looking for 6 people who would like to experience a sound bath. Please call the store at (941) 281-2264 to register. Due to limited space please do not register if you aren’t sure you can attend.

This is just the start to a more calming year. We are in the process of scheduling more Serenity Yoga classes. Watch for an announcement of more classes. In addition, we will be making an announcement of additional services to help your mind, body and spirit. Stay tuned!
