Come Relax and Restore with Yin Yoga

Join Natalia this Thursday night 7:30-8:45PM

Yin Yoga is a slower style of yoga that targets the connective tissues in the body to create more joint mobility, muscle and fascia flexibility and better circulation.  It is a wondeful complementary yoga practice to more dynamic and invigorating yoga styles such as vinyasa flow.In Yin Yoga, floor postures are held in a relaxed, passive way from 1 – 5 minutes in order to safely access and work connective tissues such as joints and tendons.

This workshop will consist of mostly floor postures with an emphasis on stillness and silence.   This Yin offering will facilitate both the body and the mind for a deeper meditative state.

Reiki & Restorative
This Sunday Nov. 5th 1-3PM with Julie & Vicki

 Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the reiki practitioner can channel energy into others by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the receiver’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.Restorative yoga is a deeply relaxing and therapeutic class for all levels, including absolute beginners. We use bolsters, blankets, blocks and straps to support every part of the body for several minutes.

By supporting the physical self, we create environment which allows the nervous system and other internal systems to completely relax and recharge.

During this workshop you will be introduced to reiki/energy work and will receive
reiki from Vicki during your restorative yoga practice which will be lead by Julie.
The combination of both
practices should leave you feeling deeply relaxed & rejuvenated.

Vinyasa Breakdown
Thursday Nov.16th with Stephanie
Whether you are new to yoga or a seasoned yoga practitioner this workshop will appeal to all.  We will explore the pieces of Suyra Namaskara A,B & C (sun/moon salutes). There are many different components to each of these very important pieces of a vinyasa practice.We will explore different variations of vinyasa, as well as how to properly set up the postures. You can expect some discussion about the postures and the use of breath to begin. Followed by a slow break down of the sun variations giving time for questions and proper set up and lastly, a flow to put it all together. We will visit the idea of using props to help us maintain safe alignment and build muscle memory. When we know what the postures are supposed to feel like we can then begin to explore the fluidity of the vinyasa flow practice.

Yoga Mandalas for Kids
Saturday Nov. 18th 2-4PM with Julie

Mandala is derived from the Sanskrit word for circles. In this two hour workshop children will join Julie Aronis to explore circles through yoga and art.  As a group we will create  mandalas out of our bodies to create yoga poses, as well as incorporate objects from nature to make our class more fun and expressive.  Individually, we will create temporary and permanent mandalas to make and take home.  Supplies will be provided for this workshop, but the children are encouraged to bring special items they find in nature such as seashells, rocks, leaves, sticks, etc.

Meditation & Relaxation-Yoga Nidra
Sunday Nov. 19th 7:00PM-8:15 with Linda

Head into the holiday season happy and healthy!
This deeply restorative evening will include:  gentle movement to release tension, foot massage to ground and soothe, guided meditation done lying down, an opportunity to journal and reflect while savoring the sweet warmth of mulled cider.
Yoga Nidra, translated as “yogic sleep,” is the yoga that you don’t have to do. It’s deeply relaxing guided meditation for your whole body. While lying down, you’ll be guided through a relaxation experience that encourages a systematic relaxation of the body while the mind enters a deep state of meditative awareness. Give your immune system a boost as you take the ultimate power nap.  Transform stress and anxiety while increasing health and well-being.  No yoga or meditation experience needed. Wear comfortable clothing and bring anything that makes you feel at ease…your favorite pillow, blanket, or eye pillow.
