Restorative yoga is the yoga of deep rest. It is an invitation to make self-care a priority. Through gentle movement, simple breathwork, guided relaxation and full support of the body in restorative yoga postures, the student is led into a state of deep rest and healing. This practice is a powerful antidote to the accumulated effects of stress. Quiet the body and mind, melt into stillness, and explore rest as a powerful, spiritual, and medicinal force.
A gentle practice, full of left and right brain activation, pranic breathing, vivid imagery, and storytelling are combined to allow a deeper state of rest. Engage in active meditation as the body is supported in poses for sustained periods of time facilitated by blankets, pillows, and bolsters. No experience necessary.
Chair Yoga takes traditionalYoga postures and provides stability and support through the creative use of a chair. Poses are done seated on the chair or the chair is used for support during standing and balancing postures. We will modify so that even those with health restrictions, decreased range of motion, and physical challenges can enjoy the benefits of a more traditional practice. This class will awaken areas of the body that have been inactive, create circulation, soothe aching joints, and strengthen muscles, while cultivating mindfulness. Chair Yoga is suitable for all ages, fitness levels and physical conditions and is something you can easily take out of the studio and into your home or office!

YOGA FOR EMOTIONAL HEALTH
A consistent yoga practice can help us make shifts towards calm and ease through movement, breath, and attention. Our breath anchors us in the present moment and empowers us with the ability to self-regulate. In this class we will increase body awareness, relieve stress, reduce muscle tension and inflammation while sharpening concentration and calming the nervous system. We will learn techniques to coax the body into a relaxation response allowing us to reduce stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. Once a relaxation response can be achieved, many people feel that instead of trying to escape their feelings, they can stay with them, which is an essential step toward identifying the factors that trigger intense emotions, and eventually lessen them
