Sunday December 3rd 5:30 - 7:30pm

Find peace in the light of the moon and rest with Brian Stump, RYT200. During this 2-hour workshop, we will explore moon salutations (Chandra Namaskar) followed by restorative yoga. The practice of moon salutations are a reflection of sun salutations (Surya Namaskar); just as the moon has no light of it's own but reflects the light of the sun. Chandra Namaskar provides space to connect with your lunar energy which is cooling, relaxing, creative, and inwardly focused. Our society typically encourages our solar energy, making it easy to pursue worldly achievements rather than internal awareness. Chandra Namaskar allows you to find balance in our crazy, impulse driven society. As we move through the gentle flow of the moon salutations, we will be preparing our body for rest; deliberate rest with restorative yoga. Let go of physical tension, emotional stress, and mental control while allowing your body to be cradled by the earth. Using blocks, blankets, straps, and other props to find comfort in poses, you’ll allow your body, mind, and spirit to relax. This class will take place on the last full moon before the winter solstice and is perfectly placed to help you tackle the busy holiday season with mindfulness and ease. No prior yoga experience is necessary. All levels are welcome. $25.  Please bring your yoga mat if you can!

Yin Yoga is simple, but simple does not mean easy.” — Bernie Clark
This special yoga class will focus on increasing mobility and range of motion
of the hips, legs (especially the hamstrings), and lower back. All are welcome,
regardless of your yoga experience.
Rather than working to strengthen the muscles and creating heat, as in a
Yang/Flow Yoga practice, a Yin Yoga practice targets the connective tissue -
the fascia and ligaments - which surrounds the joints of the body, eventually
generating more flexibility within the physical body and stillness, receptivity,
and serenity within the emotional body. In this non-alignment focused
practice, poses are held for three to five minutes with little or no muscular
contractions, allowing the body to adapt and respond to the stretch at a depth
which is individually appropriate.
There are numerous benefits to runners of a Yin Yoga practice:
-Calming, regulating and balancing the energy in the mind and the body
-Lowering stress levels and increasing stamina
-Lubricating and protecting the joints
-Creating space, which translates to greater flexibility
-Building for a more grounded, open, focused, and stronger Flow Yoga
practice
We hope you will join us for a yoga practice that will have a positive effect on you! - $20
