YIN YOGA

Yin Yoga is a deeply meditative practice of floor postures that encourage the body to open as each pose is held passively for three to five minutes at a time. It targets the deep, dense connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and cartilage and activates the movement of prana through the core of the body. This class invites you to connect with and open your body in new and unexpected ways. It is a wonderful opening experience into self discovery and awareness.

 

RESTORATIVE YOGA & SOUND BATH

A practice to heal and nourish your body, mind, and spirit.  Through restorative yoga, meditation, breathwork, and sound healing practices you are transported to a place of serenity and peace.  Your brain will move into the deeper brainwave frequencies that will help induce meditative and peaceful states to allow for clarity of mind and relaxation.
Restorative yoga is designed to restore, relax and rejuvenate the body. By using bolsters, blankets, and other props, the body is able to be totally supported as it holds poses for a longer period of time which then promotes a deep state of relaxation. A sound bath is a deeply immersive, full body listening experience that intentionally uses sound to invite gentle, yet powerful therapeutic and restorative processes to nurture your mind and body.
No prior experience is needed. Please wear comfortable clothing.  Props available at studio or BYO (ex: your own bolster or pillow case to cover studio bolster).

 

SOUND BATH and MEDITATION

Join us for a blissful guided meditation and sound healing. The meditation will focus on relaxing the mind and body, while the vibrations of the instruments ground and re-center you. The room will be lightly illuminated with candles as the singing bowls and chimes gently fill the room.

 

YOGA NIDRA 

Yoga Nidra- “yogic sleep,”  a practice that stimulates deep relaxation. In a Yoga Nidra session your mind is guided through a series of steps that slow it down to the  alpha/theta wave lengths.  That state between waking consciousness and deep sleep, simultaneously at rest and completely alert.
