“My mind is like my internet browser. I have 19 tabs open, 3 of them are frozen & I have no idea where the music is coming from.”
We have all been there. Our minds, and bodies, race from thought to thought as we create constant, never-ending to-do lists, arrange and rearrange schedules, organizing our lives and often the lives of those around us, run from one activity to the other...It is time to close some of the open tabs in our brain and recharge mentally and physically.
Join us for a very special 2 hour practice designed to relax and restore the mind and the body. We will start with a gentle practice which will include a light flow connecting breath and movement and holding stretches both intended to melt away tension and release any stress we may be gripping onto. Then we will sink and surrender into a nurturing restorative practice with the assistance of props, gentle hands on assists and essential oils. We will end with a guided loving-kindness meditation with time at the end for silent meditation, reflection or prayer.
This class is for practitioners of all levels. No experience is required! If you have a favorite throw blanket at home, please feel free to bring it with you. Dress in warm, comfortable loose fitting clothes.
I have been teaching yoga for 4 years and practicing for 22 years. It is my strong belief that the physical practice of the asanas is what we do to prepare and strengthen the body so that we can sit comfortably and with ease in mediation. As a teacher,I realize that asking students to sit in stillness can be equally as challenging as leading them through a series of dynamic movements. There needs to be a balance of strengthening, increasing flexibility and surrendering into stillness on our mats. It is my goal to be able to offer my students a complete and well-balanced practice!
