Flow and Restore
Find strength, length, calm and spaciousness in the body and mind. Starting class in a vinyasa style, we will cultivate warmth while linking breath with movement. We will build strength, maintain mobility, and deepen awareness. We will spend the second part of the class in supported restorative poses, restoring the nervous system, calming the mind and body. This well-rounded practice is a great gift for the body, mind and spirit.
This class is an invitation to slow down and restore your nervous system. Restorative poses and breathing exercises are sequenced to help release the body and mind of tension and stress. Through the use of props and long holds we will gently open the body, experience deep relaxation and nourish our energy. No experience necessary, all are welcome! Please bring something to cover your eyes, such as an eye pillow, if you would like.
Restorative Yoga + Nidra
This class will begin with 1 hour of relaxing, stress-relieving Restorative Yoga, followed by 30-minutes of guided meditation designed to help you achieve the state of deep relaxation known as Yoga Nidra. This gentle class is perfect for beginners, those returning after illness, injury, or stress, and anyone seeking deeper relaxation.
