In this gentle restorative class, the meditative principles of mindfulness are woven into both movement and still yoga postures, helping the practitioner connect to the healing power of the breath to find comfort and ease in their bodies, while quieting the busy mind.
The focus is on deep relaxation and the class centers around the practice of Yoga Nidra, a practice that produces a profound state of relaxation in the mind and body to help shed layers of tension and pain. At a deeper level, Yoga Nidra is also a meditative practice that helps transform the beliefs and feelings that keep us stuck in negative patterns of anxiety and depression. Ongoing research clearly documents the benefits of yoga and meditation for many conditions including arthritis, chronic back pain, cancer, depression, heart disease, MS, fibromyalgia and pain management in general
Healing Path Yoga: Online Fall 2021
With the uncertainty around the delta variant, as well as our studio space, we have decided to stay online for now, with the possibility of opening later to in-person for those who are interested. Every week we will learn progressive practices that integrate breath, movement and mindfulness to soothe the nervous system and enhance your immune system. Perhaps this pandemic is an opportunity for all of us to learn and grow in new ways and discover an inner peace we already have. (Class time is 9:30-11am, but we will keep the zoom room open for tea and conversation afterwards.)
