Beginner Friendly Yoga Practice
Tuesday Evenings 6:00 pm MT
Deeply Relax Your Whole Being
Monday Evenings - 8 ET / 7 CT / 6 MT / 5 PT - Online
Reap the benefits of a deeply relaxing healing practice.
Set up a safe, calm, and comfortable environment.
Breathe, set an intention, and after a brief gentle warm-up, settle into a few supported Restorative postures.
Resting in stillness, fully supported by yoga props (or your own versions, like pillows and blankets) helps to calm the nervous system, relax/settle the mind/body/spirit.
This practice activates the 'Rest and Digest' or Parasympathetic response in our Nervous System, which can help any health problem that is caused or exacerbated by chronic stress, such as fibromyalgia, gastrointestinal ailments, insomnia, hypertension, anxiety disorders and many more.
Gentle Yoga Asana + Mindfulness
Tues / Thurs Mornings - 10 ET / 9 CT / 8 MT / 7 PT - Online
This practice is a gentle balanced yoga practice designed to improve or maintain flexibility, strength, and coordination as well as a greater sense of overall well-being and contentment.
Gently stretch and strengthen the body in reclined, seated, and standing poses, while developing mindful awareness. This practice hydrates fascia (connective tissue), lubricates joints, improves the mind/body connection, (proprioception & interoception), which keeps us safer, more 'coordinated' as we move through the world.
Mindfulness is a practice that helps us remain present in the moment; it helps us identify and more wisely choose our thoughts and belief systems, and makes it easier to respond more calmly to our inner and outer circumstances. Mindfulness has been shown to ease anxiety, as well as mental and physical tension.

Yoga Nidra -
Conscious Awareness Sleep
Friday, September 29 / Morning
10 ET / 9 CT / 8 MT / 7 PT
During yoga nidra, participants lie down on a comfortable surface with the intention to move into a deep state of conscious awareness sleep.
The results are typically long lasting relaxation, calming, and reforming our personality, our internal belief systems about ourselves and our circumstances.
You will be guided through a systematic practice, moving awareness from the external world to the inner world. Yoga Nidra brings us to a state of deep rest where our senses, intellect, and mind relax. We become free from the concepts of time, space and reason. When this happens, brain activity reduces and the body goes into a healing state.
