Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra (Guided Relaxation) with Jean-Marie Belzile Sat, Dec 13, 2014 at 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Restorative Yoga is the perfect antidote to the stress of modern life. It is the art of active relaxation; a refuge from our busy lives and an opportunity to slow down, let go and create ease. 
In Restorative Yoga, we practice postures supported by blocks, blankets, bolsters and other props, which allow the body to gently and passively stretch and open. Following the physical practice, we will enjoy an extended relaxation, which will include simple visualization and meditation techniques to bring you to a state of emotional and mental peace. You will leave this workshop feeling calm, refreshed, renewed and restored.

$25 per person. Register before Saturday, December 6 and pay just $20!
