Ally Bogard and Jessica Caplan
- Meditation | Three Part Residency with Ally Bogard | Part I: EASE
Through mindfulness, sound therapy, and visualization this practice will aid in the rest response of the nervous system. The reduction of physical, emotional and mental stressors will give rise to the natural state of ease where great regeneration occurs at each level of our body-mind. This practice will introduce techniques, breath-work, visual and sound aids to help build you a daily practice to manage overwhelm, and regulate sleep patterns, and move from reactivity to response-ability on a more regular basis.

ABOUT JESSICA CAPLAN
Jessica Caplan is a certified sound therapy practitioner, vocalist and yoga teacher. She creates heart-centered meditative sound experiences, workshops, retreats and trainings that weave her passion for music and movement as medicine with our innate capacity and desire to heal. A yoga teacher since 2006, and a singer all her life, Jessica’s love of music, yoga and the healing arts organically merged several years ago. She completed a 290-hour sound therapy practitioner training at the Open Center’s Sound and Music Institute, and has since guided soundbaths, crafted meditative soundscapes for yoga classes and events, and led workshops, retreats and trainings in the therapeutics of sound. Jessica has been teaching at Pure Yoga since 2009, and several years ago, began curating a monthly sound bath led by her and a different guest musician. As a teacher, she is particularly passionate about providing students an integrative, loving approach to connecting with the voice, and through that, with oneself. She is a Reiki practitioner and Restorative yoga teacher, and continues her studies of yoga, sound healing, Native traditions, shamanic practices, and classical Indian music with dear teachers. Her work has been covered in the New York Times T Magazine, The Observer, and on CBS news. Jessica is also the co-creatrix of SoundMind (www.soundmind.space), an audio meditation series combining meditation with therapeutic sound, released in the fall of 2016.
