Restorative Yoga & Guided Meditation- A Quieting Practice for All Levels
This class takes a "less is more" approach. We conserve energy by finding the balance between the active and passive aspects of our poses. We reclaim space, stillness, quietude, and with it we reclaim ease, peace, vitality, and clarity. Restorative yoga involves long, supported posture holds and fewer poses such as twists, seated forward folds, supported backbends, hip and shoulder openers, reclined postures, and sometimes supportive use of the wall. Dim lighting, slow and gentle movements will support a meditative environment. The last 15-minutes of every class will be spent in a guided meditation, mindfulness practice, yoga nidra, or pranayama (breathing technique). Wear comfortable clothing. Open to all levels. Taught by Marca.
Monday 530 - 645 pm
*Class time on 7/15 & 7/22 is from 6 - 7:15 pm
This class will return to Wednesday evenings at the same time starting Wednesday, 9/4/19
