Nourishing the Holiday Season: Yin Yoga & Yoga Nidra Events

November 3rd, November 24th, & December 15th, 2018

9-11am 

Cost: $30.00/individually or sign up for all 3 of these combined with the special Solstice Flow event for $25/each, paid up front ($100 total).

Teacher: Kamala Amanda Barrows


 

This practice will begin with a Yin Yoga class, settling into poses for 2-5 minutes at a time (with props as needed) to access the deep connective tissues of the body and to release deeply held tensions. This practice is helpful in supporting the well-being of the fascia, bones and joints, as well as supporting the overall flow of vital energy/life force throughout the body and bringing ease and space to the active mind. This is a great preparation for the more subtle practices that follow. 

Next, we will work with the breath, engaging in pranayama exercises (breath exercises) to support and balance the pranic body (energy body) and create a receptive state for the deeply restorative practice of Yoga Nidra. Then we will make a comfortable nest on our mats where we will lay in Savasana (corpse pose) for about 45-60 minutes of guided relaxation. 

Yoga Nidra is sleep with trace awareness or deep conscious relaxation. It is a state of mind between wakefulness and dreaming where contact with the subconscious and unconscious dimensions of the mind occurs spontaneously. This is a subtle, yet powerful experience in which you learn to relax consciously, systematically inducing complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. When you practice Yoga Nidra you are opening to the deeper levels of your mind while remaining awake and aware. The benefits of this practice can be many, as there are so many states of dis-ease in our lives today that are a result of tension at some level of our being. The practice of Yoga Nidra is the scientific method of removing these tensions and re-establishing ease. It is recommended to bring an extra blanket, pillow, eye pillow or scarf, and that you have layers of clothing to remain very comfortable during this practice. The more comfortable the body can become, the deeper we can settle into the realm of consciousness.


Please join us for this nourishing practice to help support your overall well-being.

Solstice Flow: Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation) with the traditional Surya Mantras

December 22, 2018

Cost: $30 or $25 if combined with the other 3 Saturday Special classes (Yin Yoga & Yoga Nidra).

with Kamala Amanda Barrows



For our Solstice Flow, we will be engaging in the practice of Surya Namaskar (the Sun Salutation) to honor the return of the light both outside and within, as we also encourage the warmth of our inner sun to warm and support our bodies, and illuminate the mind. We will incorporate the traditional Surya mantras with each movement of the flow to help uphold the sacred vibration of the surya energy. 


This will be a mindful flow geared toward to those with some yoga experience or those beginners with a sense of adventure and willingness to be moving up and down on the mat repeatedly. 


Registration Deadline by December 19, 2018.

A deposit of $15 will be due upon registration to hold your spot, and the remaining $15 balance will be due the day of the event. If there are not enough participants signed up to run the event, the full deposit will be returned. However, if you sign up for the event and fail to show up, the deposit will not be returned.
