  • MISFITSTUDIO OSSINGTON 88 Ossington Avenue Toronto, ON, M6J 2Z4 Canada (map)

Join Vanessa & Darren as they guide and lead a unique healing journey using tools of movement, active&passive release, shaking&rolling, sound healing and meditation. In this special evening, Vanessa will guide a restful restorative class and offer hands-on healing through the means of reiki and cranial sacral therapy, while Darren fills the magical church in his blissful sound bath and chakra toning to harmonize our centres.

We’ll explore and venture into a land of swimmingly deep para-sympathetics and vibrational realignment to boost your body, mind and spirits! In this incarnation of Release & Restore we'll prepare to let it all fall away, and take the time we need to acclimatize to the new season of Autumn. #mysticmisfits
