SomaNidra

A combination of somatics and yoga nidra.

The idea behind somatics is that slow, gentle exercises re-educate the nervous system and allow the release of tight, restricted muscles, thereby promoting healing. Yoga practices based on somatics blend this concept with appropriate yoga asanas.

This specialty class will focus on a specific part of the body through exploration of slow & deliberate movement followed by stillness (nidra) to allow the body to soften into full rest for deeper healing.

This is a 75 minute class.

Everyone welcome.

Restorative yoga is a restful practice that holds gentle yoga poses for a longer duration (up to 20 minutes) using props like yoga blocks, blankets, and bolsters.

All poses are done in a seated or reclined position on the mat (there are no standing poses).

Occasionally, yoga nidra or a guided visualization will also be incorporated.

It is a practice of deep relaxation that emphasizes the meditative aspect of yoga-the union of body and mind, and helps to promote healing of the body, mind and spirit.

 

In this yin class there will be no music, no talking with the exception of the name of the pose and an indication of when to transition, no further verbal directions.

Don’t worry if you don’t know the names of the poses, you will have visual clues.

After settling into the pose, close your eyes to enhance the meditative qualities of this practice.

Join us as we practice Mettā (Loving Kindness) Meditation in a neutral space, free of politics or sides.

For 30 minutes, we come together to collectively send love and light to our human siblings who are caught up in conflict.

We sit and meditate together. We elevate our vibration and find unity as a community.

Sundays 6pm (May 5th & June 2nd)

All ages welcome!

No registration required but you can book your spot in the student portal.

Everyone welcome.

Experience a combination of Yang and Yin poses in this class. The more active Yang poses in the first half of the class will focus on strength with more time dedicated to technique and alignment. The 2nd half is dedicated to the more restorative Yin style of poses; stretching and relaxing the specific muscles that were targeted in the class. All classes work on a specific theme or muscle group/function. Props are always used to support the body and modifications are encouraged. The instructor will also incorporate basalt, hot stones to be self-administered to allow even deeper relaxation. All levels welcome.

Lengthen your whole body through this breathing meditation class, moving through extended transitions, with intentional and deliberate calm. With space between each pose, we can take time to breathe, focusing on greater body and mind awareness, allowing us time to assess, and refine alignment for improved strength and flexibility, while we repeat sequences a in slow, thoughtful pace.

For beginners to seasoned yogins. There is something for everyone.
