Harmonic Restoration with Joan & Kristin, Sunday 2/25 1-3pm $30 preregistration required buy here
In this 2 hour workshop we will begin with a seated warm up, then chant together creating a peaceful and loving cocoon as we relax deeply in restorative poses with props for support , and hands- on adjustments accompanied by soothing live music .
Using our voices as medicine through chant;
Sound with intention is powerful mode of transformation.
The mantra we will be reciting this session will be:
Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu This is a Sanskrit mantra which means:
“May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.”
“By chanting this mantra, we move from our personal self and radiate a prayer of love for the world around us. It takes us from the egoic, little self, and its limited world view, and radiates from us global wellbeing. It is a reminder we are a part of the universe and can positively impact all of creation.”
Restorative Yoga teaches us how to soothe our nervous system, encouraging mindfulness as we hold poses, using gravity and props for support and guided pranayama, we cultivate space for a deeper experience of poses and breath.
This tension melting and deeply relaxing practice provides a time for Being as opposed to Doing, creating deep rest and restoration for body, mind, and spirit.
All Levels Welcome – please bring socks if your feet run cold!

YOGA NIDRA with Beth Burris
WEDNESDAYS at 5:15 pm
Use your Class pass
Yoga Nidra, also known as yogic sleep, is a guided meditation that can be practiced seated or lying down. In this meditation, you will be guided to a deep awareness of body, breath, mind and energy. Your conscious mind will gently move through thought patterns, emotions, images, and sensations that can sometimes bring about a higher form of understanding oneself. Positive effects of this deep sleep-like practice include stress and pain relief, improved sleep and a deeper sense of calm and clarity.
