YOGA NIDRA
Yoga Nidra is a conscious relaxation meditation practiced lying down in savasana or corpse pose. (Nidra means sleep in Sanskrit.) In this deeply relaxing and healing practice, we turn inwards, coming to a state between sleep and wakefulness, where we can release layers of inner tension and plant the seeds of intention for positive transformation.

All levels are welcome. No yoga or meditation experience required.

RESTORATIVE YOGA BLISS
Return your body to a state of balance and calm with restorative yoga. Melt into gentle yoga postures, using bolsters, blocks, and blankets to support the body in easeful stretching to release tension. Soothing breathwork, loving hands-on touch, and essential oil aromatherapy help bring you deeper into a state of bliss! We will end with an extended shavasana and Yoga Nidra, a guided conscious relaxation meditation, allowing for deep levels of healing to occur on the physical, mental and emotional planes. All levels are welcome.

FOUNDATIONS OF FLOW

Flow yoga is a union of breath and movement. In this workshop, you’ll learn the sequence of postures in Surya Namaskar, or Sun Salutations, in the Hatha and Vinyasa traditions. Focusing on healthy and safe alignment, we’ll break down each pose, as well as the transitions from Chaturanga to Upward Facing Dog and Downward Facing Dog.

YIN YOGA & MEDITATION

Replenish, balance, and restore. Treat yourself to a deeply nourishing Yin Yoga practice and relaxing Yoga Nidra meditation.

The opposite of our active, yang lifestyles, Yin Yoga balances the body and mind as we find stillness in floor postures held for 3-5 minutes each. These long holds help "stress" and lengthen the connective tissue around the hips, pelvis, and lower spine, with an added benefit of refreshing the energy channels within the body. Yin Yoga emphasizes stillness, awareness, and compassion. This quiet practice is not always easy or comfortable, but is great for all levels. We'll end with a nice, long Savasana and guided Yoga Nidra meditation. 

90 minutes

INTRO TO YIN YOGA SERIES

Explore the passive practice of Yin Yoga in this mini-workshop series. Each class will have a different focus for our awareness: the physical body, energy body, breath and mind. These classes will be both educational and experiential, with specific sequences for integration.

Intro to Yin Yoga: 1 - Yin and the Physical Body
In this class, we’ll explore the four principles of Yin Yoga through the lens of the physical postures. We’ll discuss how the longer holds of our yin poses, anywhere from one to five minutes each, help "stress" and lengthen our connective tissue. This balanced sequence will focus on the yin part of the body: the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.

Intro to Yin Yoga: 2 - Yin and the Energy Body
In this class, we’ll discuss the relationship between Traditional Chinese Medicine and Yin Yoga, with an experiential sequence to help refresh the energy channels within the body. This class will end with guided meditation.

Intro to Yin Yoga: 3 - Yin and the Breath
Through our breath, we can begin to affect our prana, or life force energy. In this yin practice, we’ll explore the relation of the breath, body and mind with breath awareness and pranayama, breath control practices.

Intro to Yin Yoga: 4 - Yin and the Mind
The quiet practice of Yin Yoga offers us a chance to listen deeply. In this class, we’ll pay conscious attention to thoughts, feelings, and sensations of the present moment, moving towards a more relaxed and neutral mindset. This class will end with guided meditation.

90 minutes / 4 classes
