Restorative Yoga with Gin MacCallum
Thu, September 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$20
By deepening our awareness of the sensory experience of our body, we restore energy, choice, and wellbeing to our whole self.
This class will continue on Tuesdays in October
Restorative yoga is the practice of sensing and breathing with awareness, while resting in gentle yoga postures. Blankets and bolsters are used to support the body toward deeper relaxation. Guided imagery and breath-work help loosen what is held, and open us more fully to our experience. This is an inclusive and healing yoga practice, for all ages and abilities, and can be adapted to most needs. No prior experience, mat, or special clothing is required. All are welcome.
