"The soul is your innermost being. The presence that you are beyond form. The consciousness that you are beyond form, that is the soul. That is who you are in essence". - Eckhart Tolle
It's time to press pause in a deep and meaningful way. Soul speak restorative invites you to tune in to the language of the soul. We will acknowledge the beginning of season of summer, with restorative yoga and sound healing. This practice is designed to cultivate a deep sense of relaxation, calming the parasympathetic nervous system and creating homeostasis throughout the body. Taking time to pause, rest and heal is necessary to maintain a healthy quality of life. Kemiko will lead restorative yoga and be joined by sound healer April J. Taylor.

April Taylor is passionate about the power of sound and she is guided by a mission committed to creating healthy, balanced, meditating people who embrace justice and promote healthy communities. In her sound therapy sessions, April creates peaceful conditions to reduce stress, promote deep relaxation and to induce overall levels of inner-harmony and self-Soul-alignment. A life-long learner, April initially sought sound training to reduce stress and lessen physical discomfort. Consequently, having a desire to further understand the indigenous approaches of sound harmonics, she has deepened her studies delving into the science of sound via rigorous practicums on the neuro-acoustics of sound. As a result, her sound repertoire has expanded to embrace the Gong as a focal point of her practice. April has facilitated sound meditations at the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the Phoenix & Dragon Bookstore, the Natural Mystic Fair, Sevananda Natural Foods Market, Ahimki Wellness Center, the Dekalb County Jail and on WRFG 89.3 radio. She has a growing clientbase who benefit from her unique private/groups sessions. You can often find her at Sevananda Natural Foods Market where she regularly hosts, well attended, group sound meditations.
