Heart Opening Restorative Yoga Workshop

Yes, I'm doing another workshop! Come and open your heart chakra while you linger peacefully in well-supported postures to the sound of soothing music, the aroma of essential oil and gentle hands-on adjustments. The entire workshop including the asanas, restorative poses, meditations and visualizations is designed to release blocks in the heart (anahata) chakra.

The heart chakra is the energy center that governs love, relationship, self acceptance and balance in our lives. When this energy center is out of balance we lack self love and often fear intimacy with ourselves and others or, conversely, we can become demanding and codependent. When this energy center is balanced our lives are balanced and we are compassionate and self accepting. The class will end with a ½ hour yoga nidra, a guided meditation that induces complete and deep physical, mental and emotional relaxation.

Restorative yoga is a practice that reduces your stress and improves your health. It is helpful when you feel stressed, weak, or fatigued from daily activities or major life events. Restorative yoga is especially valuable for those suffering from stress, cancer, menopause, injury, depression or other challenges. Even those who feel perfectly healthy report that restorative yoga has helped them develop more energy and sleep better. No previous yoga experience is necessary. Class size is limited to 15 people, so that you receive the attention and guidance you need. All props are provided.
