Yoga Nidra~The Art of Conscious Relaxation
Check out our January Series class in the pull-down menu.
with Katie O’Connell, E-RYT 500, AHP, AYT
Pre-registration only~go to the event page for Yoga Nidra.
Yoga Nidra is an ancient and powerful healing modality found in the oldest philosophical yoga texts, and that offers the participant a deep state of conscious rest and relaxation during which one’s awareness of the subtle energy body is expanded. While reclining comfortably, participants are guided through each of the koshas (five layers of your being), all while remaining perfectly still. The goal is to remain “awake and aware,” even though the physical body is enjoying profound rest. To Read more and pre-register, click here: Yoga Nidra
What’s My Dosha & Why Does it Matter?
NEXT CLASS: TBA
The word Ayurveda means “the science of life,” and together with yoga, it is a comprehensive system for how to live a well-balanced, healthy, and happy life. Katie’s presentation will include basic Ayurvedic principles (5 elements, Ayurvedic clock, seasonal influences, and diet), as well as time to interact and discuss. This workshop is for anyone wondering about the basic principles of Ayurveda and how to apply them to one’s own body, mind, and spirit. Together in pairs, we will use a dosha assessment to determine our current state (vikruti), and use this insight to better understand ourselves (habits, tendencies, patterns, health issues), as well as give us some direction for how to begin return balance to our bodies and minds. This workshop runs about 90 minutes, depending on questions and interaction. Cost is only $15 and includes tea, handouts & a special tri-doshic Ayurveda treat! $20 drop in. Next class TBA.
Restorative Yoga & Reiki
with Katie O’Connell & Leslie Jose
NEXT CLASS: Info coming soon. $25
Please pre-register on the Yoga & Reiki page. Space is limited!!
Restorative Yoga is great for every body, offering a respite from the stress of daily life and work, and calming the nervous system, allowing the body to relax and heal. For those who find slowing down difficult, this practice is essential, complementing an active person’s workout practice, and simply allowing for a restored sense of Self. Honor your body and quietly rejuvenate your spirit while the poses soothe the organ system and allow the brain to quiet, using bolsters, pillows, blankets, and other props to support the body in a variety of passive poses.
Take everything in the description above, and add Reiki… you’ll never want to leave the studio! Reiki healing is offered to everyone who wants to receive it. Students are visited during each pose to aid in the movement of blocked energy and the intention to heal dis-ease in the body. Inspiring readings, intention setting, relaxing music, and candlelight create a profoundly beautiful opportunity to practice a very healing kind of yoga.
Please pre-register on the Yoga & Reiki page.
