Sunday Morning Yin (5-Week Series)
Sundays 9:30-10:45a **starts June 9th (no class June 23rd)
Come experience the stillness and deep unwind of a Yin Yoga Practice in this 5-week series. The practice of Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, bones and joints of the body, so it will really help improve rang of motion in the body. Unlike an active practice, the poses of Yin are held for longer periods of time, from 3-5 minutes, allowing the muscles to soften more deeply. Breath awareness is encourage in each pose, and this creates a meditative effect, even while facing sensation in the body. Yin is a perfect complement for those who practice dynamic, muscular styles of yoga and also for athletes as a compliment for their training. Because all the poses are floor based, Yin Yoga is appropriate for everyone, from beginners to experienced practitioners. Modifications and props will be offered to help create space and healing for all levels.

5-WEEK SESSION (NEW SESSION STARTS May 19th)
Restorative yoga is an excellent opportunity to disconnect from the frenetic activity of daily life and heal your nervous system for true and vital health. The long holds in these restful poses supported by props such as bolsters, blankets, and blocks, allow the body to completely relax and trigger the parasympathetic nervous system and mitigate the effects of the fight-or-flight stress response where we spend the majority of our week. The body and mind are prepared to go inward for a deepened awareness and meditation preparation.

Meditation in Motion - 5-Week Series (Starts June 23rd)
Sundays, 6:00-7:15 p.m.
Meditation in Motion is a yoga practice accessible to any body-type and yoga experience. Incorporating both meditation and yoga postures, this practice reveals an inborn energetic intelligence which may be used to access healing, balance and Self-discovery in one’s life. This energy, which in yoga we call Prana, is the same energy that is causing your heart to beat right now and facilitates internal healing when the physical system is out of balance.
In this series you will progressively learn meditation tools and techniques to calm the mind so that you can allow your own energy to create a shift to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual homeostatic balance. This practice is an eastern style of yoga which is different from the western perspective of a one size fits all structure. You will be guided to follow your own energy’s natural wisdom on the mat and in your everyday life, making it an individualized practice just for you! The beauty of this practice is that it teaches you how to live your whole life as a Meditation in Motion!
