Are you feeling taxed by your everyday obligations? Allow yourself this special opportunity to completely ease your body and mind with Yoga and meditative music.
Through this grounding experience you will cultivate the ability to release the stress of the non-stop modern world. The guided meditations will center you. The long-held postures will release unhealthy holding patterns habituated in the body. The live music will assist you in finding peace of mind and spirit. You will leave this workshop with tools for daily life. The student who truly embraces these teachings will rise above any obstacles standing in the way of their deepest bliss.
Yin balances the more active, robust style of yoga with slower, longer-held poses that target the connective tissues in our bodies. The tools necessary to cultivate a tranquil mind are developed in this highly meditative practice. Furthermore, practitioners are asked to embrace discomfort with the intention of maintaining mental ease.
Restorative Yoga lowers stress levels, blood pressure, slows heart rate and supports digestion. Scientifically speaking, the fight or flight response – active during daily living – turns off as the Parasympathetic Nervous System activates to mitigate stress hormones and initiate the inherently revitalizing functions of the body.
