RESTORATIVE  Mending/Renewing Restorative Yoga is a practice with no muscular contraction involved. We believe we have to “work” to increase flexibility, but often we achieve more opening in parts of the body that we perceive as tight by softening and relaxing than through an active asana practice. During a restorative Yoga sequence you may feel a stretch, but you relax fully, so that tension can slowly be released. Poses are typically held for 7-15 minutes, which is easy to do with the body completely supported by a variety of props while listening to spa music.

MEDITATION Rejuvenating/Revitalizing Meditation can be an effective form of stress reduction and has the potential to improve quality of life and decrease healthcare costs.  Become a witness to the mental activity without engaging or interacting with the thoughts. Our true inner power comes when we are no longer controlled by our thoughts. We realize that the true self is not the thoughts because thoughts are simply an aspect of the mind. All levels welcome. Advanced practitioners may bring mala beads, or practice quiet forms of pranayama.
