This is APRIL'S personal favorite to both give AND receive!
More appropriately (& endearingly) referred to as "lazy man's yoga",
this session is done fully dressed as you are moved through a series of passive
asanas, or postures. In addition to passive stretches, you receive varying
degrees of pressure throughout the movement.
Clients LOVE being pushed, pulled, twisted, rocked and sometimes...
WALKED ALL OVER!
It's a journey to bliss, my friends!
YOU will LOVE IT!!!
Yoga is an excellent way to improve awareness, balance, strength and flexibility. My passion is to empower ALL ages and abilities with the gift of this practice. Designing each session for your personal needs and limitations, there is something here for ALL levels! Specializing in limited range of motion, disabilities, surgery recovery and individual needs, I believe this art has something for EVERYONE! This is traditional, therapeutic yoga unlike ANY you've ever experienced!

Learn to integrate your awareness of breath & movement obtained on the mat into an energizing, cardiovascular experience! Learn to adjust your body mechanics and breath to overcome various challenges arising from charging the city's terrain. You will not only be improving your vascular health, but you will also be challenging your body physically beyond what you could traditionally explore in your mat yoga practice.
Momentum: A Yoga in Motion Series (TM)is an eight-week commitment of intentional movement that will provide you with long-lasting adjustment skills and awareness that continue to improve and impact your walking and your yoga. Awaken your breath, body and mind as you charge city hills with awareness! You will stride with grace and ease after discovering and mastering the body adjustments and breath it requires to hike a 24 degree incline through Birmingham's rolling hills and reach the top with the same slow breathing you have on a flat surface. You will learn controlled breath and mindful adjustments like lifting the spine and dropping the heels to improve posture, diaphragmatic breathing and energy. This is a fun, new, and exciting way to explore your practice, or start a new one and take it off the mat!
This series is great for avid walkers and runners, cyclist, or any other athlete looking to improve their existing fitness regimen with greater stamina and endurance. Momentum was created and brought to you by April Jones, Birmingham's native massage therapist, and one of the city's pioneer yoga therapists. Always looking for new ways to take yoga off the mat and apply it to life, this technique was discovered and developed during one of her favorite past times-walking back in 2006! Noticing a significant difference in energy levels and ease of breath when applying the same fundamental yoga techniques, she discovered she could transition from inclines to flat terrain, back to life with greater ease and energy through the same simple breathing and adjustments she makes on her mat. This is an incredible adventure that she can not wait to take you on! Class size is limited, so please act now. The session size is intentionally kept small in order to maximize your Momentum experience, however, should our chosen schedule not work with yours, please reach out and let's arrange a PRIVATE TIME just for you!

Healing Waters is a medicinal beverage created & made by April Jones, lmt/nmt/mmp/vtyt. This "healing elixir" has anti-viral, anti-fungal properties that pack a mean punch of Vitamin C! This beverage contains oranges, lemons, ginger, honey, herbs, lots of love & prayers for healing! I began creating this tea while living in Florida. My second winter there, we were slammed with an INCREDIBLE cold & flu epidemic! Many I knew & loved were ridden with horrible sickness that invaded homes & stayed; not just weeks, but several MONTHS!
Being the ever eager healer, and surrounded by an abundance of fresh, healing produce, I began to research various herbs that I could easily blend with the citrus to create an easy sipping tonic. I wanted something simple to prepare, soothing, healing, and most importantly...tasty! So, in my humble kitchen, I came up with a recipe that I quickly began canning & distributing. If someone told me they were sick, I placed in their hands one mason jar of what quickly became known as "Healing Waters". People would call me immediately, stating, "I don't know WHAT you put in those healing waters, but it tasted great and I feel so much better"...or "I slept so much better"...or "breathed so much better"...or "the coughing was so much better"...or "the queasiness was so much better." The consensus was, this drink made things "BETTER!"
My family and I would keep the last of every batch. Our cups were toasted as we prayed for the protection and wellness of those who consumed the drink. We found we didn't get sick, and if we did, the symptoms were minimal and didn't hit us nearly as hard. This was also the experience of the care givers who would indulge as they prepared the waters for those in their home. This revelation quickly turned into a seasonal request that kept me busy the entire fall & winter months. I continued to make regular batches, and have every year since the first in 2004. I primarily make batches during the fall & winter months, but it is not uncommon for Healing Waters to be found around our home all year long. A few clients who travel all year purchase cases each month. My children often request it at the first sign of a cough, sore throat, or body aches. Regardless of request, it is a staple in our home medicine pantry.
Because the herbs in the waters are "adaptogens" (toning herbs for the system), it is ideal to plan to consume the entire bottle once opened. I would not recommend you open this, have a cup, and then store in your fridge indefinitely. These bottles can be purchased at the Silver Linings "studio store". They make wonderful gifts and will store unopened in a dark, cool spot, for up to 2 months*. These are currently available by the Quart (24 oz) for $20, which boasts about 4 small cups. You can also purchase 2 Q for $35, or a case of 6 Q for $100.
The most frequent questions I receive regarding the waters are: 1.What is in it? and 2. What does it taste like? Well, I cannot tell you the entire ingredients, for if I did, I would be forced to kill you. Seriously, the ingredients are a trade secret this "Concoction Queen" takes VERY seriously. I desire to see these available to you at some point at your local farmers market and grocery store, in our local restaurants,and WHO KNOWS, maybe even sold worldwide! DREAM BIG, RIGHT?! SO, until then, many things MUST be kept under wraps-thank your for your understanding!
I CAN TELL YOU, ALL of the ingredients are fresh and natural. There are no artificial ingredients used & the taste is most soothing and pleasing. It is a light citrus blend that is slightly sweetened, although you may always add honey to your own taste and/or preference. I find the waters to be a delightful after dinner drink that cleanses and refreshes the palette, and makes for one MEAN hot toddy!
I look forward to sharing this beautiful gift with you. It truly is amazing the medicine God has gifted us straight from the Earth! We underestimate simple healing foods, aromatherapy, and herbs. These are what kept people well and helped them heal in times past...isn't it time we got back to our roots, and let Mother Earth support us the way she was intended to? I say try over the counter stuff, full of ingredients you cannot pronounce with risky side effects...OR...try something gifted from The Earth by someone that understands the benefits and wants nothing more than to simply see you made well.

This deeply relaxing and restorative session gifts the recipient profound healing through both sound and vibration. Utilizing a broad range of instruments (chimes, Tibetan singing bowls, drums, tuning forks, etc.), you are transported to a blissful, restorative state while bathed in a symphony of sound. I have been trained and certified as a Sound and Vibration Therapist and most eager to share this simple, yet profound modality with you!
-This was my very first “Sound Session” while training to become a Vibrational Sound Therapist with Meditate School of Mindfulness. From the moment we began, I was in love and knew without question, that I had been preparing for this work my entire life. (North Carolina, 2022)
"The tuning fork is used like a mirror to reflect back to the body where it is stuck; like a metronome to help the body discover its right rhythm; like a magnet to move the electromagnetic energy that is stuck in a particular area of the field and assists the body back into a state of flow.... It isn't the sound that is doing the healing; it is providing the body with feedback and information to support it in healing itself."
-Facilitating group sound sessions and events is a passion Each one is intuitively guided by the needs and energy of the groups. Private sessions are available for you and yours. (New Year’s Intentions Ceremony, Birmingham, Al 2023)
Some of the benefits associated with Sound and Vibration Therapy include:
-Synchronizing brain waves to achieve profound states of relaxation.
- Return harmony to homeostasis by balancing "DIS-eased" places in the body to their normal vibrational frequencies.
-Influencing and altering the energetic Biofield system.
-Improved wound healing, including pain reduction.
-Improved concentration, clarity and consciousness.
- I had the pleasure of playing while my mentor, “Mukti” Michael Buck of the Vedic Conservatory led Tratak meditation in Birmingham, Al (December 2022).
“Sound healing is the frontier of true holistic medicine, for sound gives us access to the quantum realm of bioenergy, and empowers us to consciously modify our quantum biology for personal( and even planetary) healing, and transformation.”
-Animals are extremely responsive to Vibrational Sound medicine. This is my sweet fur friend, Buster, who received sound sessions while I was dog sitting. He dealt with hot spots and digestive disturbance due to separation anxiety, and the after two days of forks, his hot spots began to heal.
