New Transformational Flow Yoga class Tuesdays 9-10:15am
Come try Bonni's new class starting Tuesday, September 1st! Only $10 for the month of September! Transformational Flow Yoga is a unique approach to yoga that encourages students to begin their own transformation process. During every class session, various methods such as Thai yoga massage, yin yoga style release work, hands-on assists, neuromuscular facilitation, resistance stretching, and various forms of meditation and breathwork help release tension and tightness. This individualized approach to a yoga practice strengthens weak areas of the body allowing the stressed overworked spots such as the shoulders, neck, and lower back to relax and heal. Deep muscles of the torso synergistically take weight off of the joints to ease the muscles. Emotional blockages release, old patterns which cause tightness/pain give way to new patterns that create inner strength and a tension-free body. Moving from center, utilizing "core strength," the body relearns to move in new ways within a dynamic, weightless, fluid yoga flow routine let go of stress in the body, protect and strengthen joints, create ease and balance systemically. The practice ends with a guided meditation to deeply relieve stress. No prior yoga experience needed.
Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra Workshop Sunday, Sept. 27 2:30-4:30pm
Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra®, designed by Jennifer Reis of Kripalu Yoga Center, is an eight-stage guided meditation that has the power to transform, heal and rejuvenate you at core levels. While resting in stillness, you are systematically guided on a meditative journey through your multi-dimensional self. This includes awareness and healing at each level of being (the five koshas) — physical, energetic, mental-emotional, and bliss-healing layers of your being, in order to dissolve away tensions to reveal your True Self.
