Candlelit Yin Yoga
with Krista Mason
Sundays 6/2, 6/30, 7/21 & 8/18
Nourish your body and mind in this quiet, relaxing practice. You will leave relaxed and rejuvenated with a deeper feeling of balance and a deeper sense of calm.
Yin Yoga helps bring balance to our overly busy lifestyles. It is a contemplative practice of long, passive holds (generally 3-5 minutes) in specific floor postures to nourish the joints and ligaments of our body while emphasizing and deepening into the breath throughout the practice. These asanas gently strengthen and rehabilitate the connective tissues that form our joints, allowing us to maintain and restore joint flexibility. This practice helps to bring balance to both our lives and our more active yoga practices. Yin Yoga also allows us to become more present, allowing us to draw “within” ourselves and quiet our mind and body. As we find that quiet acceptance in our postures, we can also find this acceptance spilling out into our life.
We will practice by the glow of candlelight, and finish practice by sharing some yummy chocolate! We will leave relaxed, rejuvenated, and filled with ease.
Cost is $20.
Yoga Flow+Yin Fundraiser for CHEC
with Krista Mason
Saturday, June 15, 5-6:30 pm
Our High School and Middle School need instrument repair! Columbia Heights Educational Campus (CHEC) needs your help with instrument repair.
The CHEC Music Department is proud of its music program that encompasses a 6th grade Beginning Band, 7th and 8th grade Band, Marching Band, Latin Jazz Ensemble, Wind Ensemble, Afro Pan-American Ensemble, and Show Choir. We also offer piano and music technology courses. In addition, the CHEC Music Department partners with the Kennedy Center, Washington Performing Arts Society, DC Arts Collaborative, DC Youth Orchestra, and MusicianShip.
Currently, we have a serious issue that will halt the growth of our Music Department. Our instruments are in disrepair, and we do not have any funding to fix them. Starting next August, we will have eager student musicians standing at the door that will need to be turned away, and the door barred to their music education.
Want to enjoy an evening of yoga for a great cause? Krista will be teaching a 90 minute Flow+Yin practice that is open to the community. Please donate through the gofundme at www.gofundme.com/save-our-instruments, and sign up for the free class at www.graceyps.com. Can't make class but want to make a donation anyway, THANK YOU!!!! Feel free to donate to our gofundme page and share with friends.
