Candlelit Yin Yoga
with Krista Mason
Sunday 10/29 6:30-8 p.m.
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 and rejuvenated. Cost is $20.
Storytelling through Asana
with Lauren Simms & Jade Olubayo
Friday, October 27, 6:30-8 pm
This practice is designed to expose yogis to the meanings and stories behind the mantras and asanas (postures) that are often referred to as we form these amazing shapes. You will be guided and are invited to hold postures as Lauren and Jade explain the stories about where the particular asanas derived from. This class is available to all levels and is based on the idea of forming a deeper understanding of why and how we hold strength in various postures. We happily invite open minds and hearts.
Cost is $20.
