Nidra

Nidra is the sanskrit word for sleep. The practice of yoga nidra takes you to the deepest state of mediation and complete body relaxation. It is often combined with sessions of sound healing (as in “gong bath” or “gong meditation”), and designed to restore your body at a molecular level.


Sunday Movement

This Vinyasa style class uses movement to create a physical state of exertion and mental concentration, leading to deep relaxation and meditation at the end. You will leave feeling loose, calm and connected. This class is playful and will explore challenging poses, while giving you the opportunity to learn them. We will include an abundance of advice for modifications, allowing students to customize their practice. Open to all levels, this class provides equal opportunity for challenge–it will be what you make it, according to what your body needs (deeper? easier?) and is capable of on the day you show up.

Yin Therapy:

Take your practice deep and slow, as we start with yin and stretching posses to ease you into the practice and out of your busy day.   Embrace a stillness within you and let the outside world go as you immerse yourself in this  calming and quieting practice. Next, we’ll explore opening and twisting with ease, as we move into gentle vinyasa.  Let your breath be a dance.  Be ready to challenge yourself and connect with the peace within you. This class is a journey with soothing music and inspirational messages each week.  Appropriate for beginners.  All levels welcome.
