Yin Yoga Workshop: 1/ 18/15 with Marlena

Mindful, Meditative Balance

Yin Yoga Workshop with MarlenaSunday, Jan 18th, 3-5pm

3-5pm

The perfect balance for every yogi.

Yin Yoga is the complimentary practice to our more dynamic yang vinyasa practice. A yin practice focuses primarily on floor postures, held passively for longer periods of time to allow the body to open and access the deeper connective tissues and fascia.

Yin yoga will restore and maintain the natural mobility in your joints, enhancing the body’s range of motion, energetic flow and emotional well being. Yin’s emphasis on stillness and silence promotes a deeply meditative experience.

Stretch deeply, find balance in both body and mind and reset with a deeply meditative meditation known as yoga nidra (the magical place between awake and sleep)

Perfect for beginners and athletes looking to open up the shoulders and area’s between navel & knee’s. Price: $30

Pre-registration is required

Sign up today! Space is limited to the first 20 yogi's, all others will be placed on wait list.

Heart Opening Restorative Workshop with Deana 4/10/15

 

Join Deana for a restorative workshop is designed to bring compassion, self love, and balance into our lives. Anahata (heart) chakra is the energy center that governs the relationship we have with ourselves and others. When this energy center is pessimistic we can be intolerant, fear intimacy and suffer from depression. When this energy center is hyper-active we can be clingy, jealous and demanding of others. When balanced, our lives are balanced and we are both compassionate and self accepting. The entire practice including the asana, restorative poses, visualizations and meditation will be designed to bring balance to this energy center

The practice begins with a gentle flow followed by restorative poses utilizing bolsters, eye pillows and hands on assist and will end with a meditation technique practiced in Savasana.

Please feel free to bring your own blanket.
