ASHLEY ARNOLD - YOGA

Yoga Nidra is an ancient sleep-based meditation technique that has the power to take you to the innermost, deepest levels of relaxation where your whole body and being is permeated by peace of mind and profound stillness. It unlocks the integrative powers of the subconscious, as well as your higher centers of consciousness, to effortlessly erase your most tenacious, self-destructive habits and behavior patterns while energizing and re-bridging the mental and physical bodies. Gentle movement shifts into Savasana, the deep steep space where Yoga Nidra beings.  Each Yoga Nidra class is as restorative as 3-4 hours of R.E.M sleep

SLOWING DOWN

5:30-7:30pm

AMY SOLARA - YOGA WORKSHOP

Women have known since the dawn of time that we are connected to the moon, so why doesn’t our yoga practice reflect that beautiful cycle of energy? Let’s explore how to shift your practice from day to day, week to week, to follow the ups and downs of energy flow each month. Beginning with a basic overview of the progression of the Moon’s cycle, and how to chart it, we’ll then dive into what that does for your body.

From the low and intuitive energy of the New Moon, to the high and powerful energy of the Full Moon, and back again, our bodies and the way they move directly correlate to this path of the Moon in the heavens. 

After we have established what the cycle of the Moon feels like without and within, we will then experience a mini yoga class of a number of different styles of yoga that can directly compliment that flow.
