Join us for a meditative experience of sound healing and restorative yoga. Bree French will lead a sound bath using various tools, such as crystal bowls, to quiet the mind and put you into a state of deep rest. The sound bath is accompanied by a few gentle restorative yoga postures, in which you’ll be completely supported by props (blankets, bolsters, blocks, etc.) and held for long periods of time (5-15 min.) to promote relaxation.
Explore poses using a prop that everyone has at home. Join Allegra, a functional movement specialist, as she leads you through a playful afternoon of yoga using the wall as your prop. She will demonstrate how making use of the wall can improve your strength, help you discover your body's proper alignment, and move you deeper into poses to build confidence in your daily practice. If you think you're nailing half moon, think again.
Note: this workshop will not be heated.
Treat Mama to an indulgent, 3-part workshop that will allow her to cleanse, restore, relax, and sleep like she's never slept before.
Holly will lead a 30-minute flow to get the bod moving, sweating and breathing in all the right ways. In the next half hour, Mamas will lie in the lap of restorative yoga luxury, using pillows, blankets and eye masks to settle into poses designed to release tension and reset the body and mind. From there, top it all off with 30 minutes of Yoga Nidra, a meditation practice experienced in savasana, in which we enter the space between consciousness and sleep. This "yoga sleep" aids in deep relaxation of the entire body, helps with insomnia, promotes focus, creativity, visualization, and pain relief.
This workshop was created for all of the exhausted, hard-working and well-deserving Mamas out there ... but is open to anybody who wants to indulge in the goodness.
Note: this workshop is transferable. If you'd like to surprise someone with this as a gift, you can enroll yourself and transfer to the recipient later on.
