Join Heather for this special Holiday mindful treat. Yoga Nidra, sometimes also referred to as “yogic sleep”, is a form a guided mediation which allows you to transcend to a place where your body is in a state of sleep whilst your mind is conscious and alert. This 60 minute class begins with movement in preparation for a lengthy savasana, or supine rest where the teacher speaks to guide you through a sequence of visual and cognitive instruction offering the opportunity to clearly see and set deep intentions. The focus here will be sankalpa Shakti, or establishing your energy and resolve for the New Year ahead!
Nidra is designed to induce a deep state of relaxation and has been known to be a positive benefit to certain common ailments such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, headaches and a whole host of other stress induced afflictions. This class is accessible and welcoming of all levels. Move mindfully into 2019 with us!
Intro to Yoga Series
4 Saturdays/February 9th-March 2nd
Begin or begin again with Ruthy! This 4 week series will take you through the basics of a yoga class in a small group setting. Each week will build upon foundational material and leave you feeling confident to move more mindfully on your own!
Week 1: Stillness & breath- finding the breath in tadasana, downward dog, child's pose and savasana.
Week 2: stand like a warrior- working from the feet in basic standing postures.
Week 3: the yin & the yang- the importance of flexibility & stretch vs. strength & containment.
Week 4: the full flow- moving through and combining all weeks.
Our most nurturing and restorative class is moving into the New Year with Ayla Singer and Michael Everson, RMT. This class is a blissful blend of yin yoga with hands-on massage to help you release fully into the postures whilst also supporting your body's needs. With the contribution of live music from Ostrea Lake, this 90 minute guidance will leave you feeling the therapeutic benefits of massage therapy and the mindfulness and energetic opening of yoga. Class size is limited to assure plenty of manual assists so preregistration is required.
