$5 Restore & Refresh
Life has us stressed to the max with our nervous system living in the fight or flight mode. This was helpful to our ancestors who had to be on the constant lookout for danger to avoid starvation or being eaten by the nearest bear. We no longer need to be this vigilant, but our systems don’t recognize this because we are overstimulated from overwork and the day to day stress of living. This 75 minute class offers the opportunity to activate the parasympathetic nervous system which allows us to rest and turn off the sympathetic nervous system which is our fight or flight mode. We will use a variety of props-blocks, pillows, blankets, and bolsters-to settle into each pose and focus on the breath. There will be brief opportunities for movement between poses. We will end with essential oils, guided relaxation and a short meditation. This class is an excellent way to let go of any lingering stress from the week and go into the week ahead with a relaxed body mind. It is appropriate for all levels and a great compliment to a more active asana practice.

Rest & Digest
Modern day life has led to widespread disease and chronic overactivation of the sympathetic nervous system or "fight or flight" response. Yoga and meditation practice provide tools to take control of the nervous system and engage the parasympathetic mode of "rest and digest" at will. This 75 minute class begins with opening meditation and contemplation followed by 10-15 minutes of educational reading which we integrate into a 20 minute soft, nurturing, slow-paced asana flow connecting the mind, body and breath. The second half of class is dedicated to iRest® Yoga Nidra Meditation practice. iRest stands for Integrative Restoration, which is a modern-day variation of the ancient practice of yoga nidra or yogic sleep, the state of consciousness between waking and sleeping. It is a simple form of meditation designed for modern day living. iRest incorporates evidence-based Western interventions, such as deep relaxation, emotional and psychological healing, and resiliency enhancement. Some use iRest to relax when life gets busy. Others use it to help heal from: serious trauma, stress, insomnia, depression, PTSD, chronic pain and chemical dependency. Overall, it's an educational self care practice that focuses on health and healing at all levels of your life: physical, psychological and spiritual, teaching you how to respond, rather than react, developing the pause between thought and action, which leads you to experience of self-mastery and well-being. This class is a safe, effective, compassionate, non-competitive environment that is welcoming to all levels.

While building your strength and balance, you can enjoy benefits of this class including strengthening of your core muscles and reduced stress and anxiety. 1 hour class.

Gentle Vinyasa is open to All Levels and Prenatal Practitioners are welcome. This class is also a good place for newbies to begin and for those who are recovering from injury or disease.
