Classes for all skill levels and movement desires.
Integrative Restoration (iRest) is a guided form of mindfulness meditation that allows you to understand how to respond to rather than react to emotions and thoughts. The integrative piece addresses concerns that you may be experiencing such as stress, anxiety, insomnia, or pain. The restorative segment allows you to uncover attributes that you already have: joy, peace, well-being, and a sense of connection to yourself and to those close to you. The class will start with very gentle movement and then you will transition to a comfortable position (lying or seated) where you will be guided through the iRest meditation practice. iRest is simple and accessible to everyone and, and you can’t do it wrong!

When deep-seated tensions of the body have an opportunity to let go, the mental tensions begin to fall away as well. In this state, we come to know ourselves in a more perfect state. Restorative Yoga is less about stretching muscle and more about putting good stress on our bones and organs. It is less about striving and more about allowing the body to unwind when put into supported rest. It is slow, it is quiet, it is deeply restful both for brain and body. This class is for all levels.
In this mindful, slower-paced yoga practice, the yoga practitioner will be encouraged to focus on body and mind awareness, linking movement and breath. Each person is encouraged to embrace one’s own body and explore new sensations. We practice together to bring in our body’s range of motion incorporating: twists, forward folds, backbends, lateral extensions, and hip openers. A variety of pranayama breathing techniques will help to improve one’s mental and physical well-being. Helpful props are utilized: folded blankets, yoga blocks, bolsters, and straps. Each class begins and ends with a quiet meditative reflection. All beings are welcome.
