Stilling the Waters - Yin Yoga & Meditation

with Jen McCarter
November 18th
1 to 3 pm
Yin Yoga postures are held passively for several minutes in order to access a safe and positive gentle "stress" to the deep layers of our connective tissue in the body. In this workshop we will use props and modifications for support exploring gently through the poses. We will focus on the seasonal changes in the body to help aid stress relief and digestion through the upcoming holiday season. This workshop will finish with a richly transformative practice of mindfulness meditation. Come find some space in your body, mind, and spirit! * Suitable for everyone - no previous yoga experience is necessary.
Cost: $25. To register, see Rose or sign up via KarmaSoft.

HoliDAZED

with Kat Hollo
December 2nd & 16th
7 to 9 pm

Who isn’t a bit DAZED by all the Holiday chaos? Take a break from the madness and escape to the studio for some much needed downtime and self-care. Using a combination of Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and Yoga Nidra, this workshop aims to help you create space in your body and mind. These yogic practices will be accompanied by: candlelight, calming music, conscious breathing, aromatherapy, gentle assists, and the use of props to support you for total relaxation. The Yin and Restorative sequence will lead us into a 40-minute Yoga Nidra practice. Yoga Nidra is a special relaxation technique, which has a deep effect on the body, the energies and the mind. The combination of these healing practices will help you clear out the anxiety and stress holidays tend to create, and make room for the joyful experiences this time of year brings.  * Suitable for everyone - no previous yoga experience is necessary.
Cost: $25. To register, see Rose or sign up via KarmaSoft.

Candlelight Relax & Restore

with Jennifer Lenhart
December 9th
7 to 9 pm
Replenish your spirit, relax your mind, and feel completely nurtured and cared for in this special two-hour long Candlelight Relaxation and Restorative class. You'll move through slow moving, simple, gentle postures as well as some restorative postures. Poses are held longer to allow the body to relax into them; when fully supported, the body assumes a state of active relaxation, lengthening muscles and relieving tension effortlessly. Soothing music, deep and conscious breathing, aromatherapy, gentle assists and massage, candlelight, and use of props encourage total relaxation. This experience will be restful and replenishing in order to promote harmony of mind, body, and  Spirit.  *Suitable for everyone - no previous yoga experience is necessary.
Cost: $25. To register, see Rose or sign up via KarmaSoft.
