Yin Yoga with Sandi Powers Sat, Nov 5, 2016 at 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Yin Yoga is a nourishing practice that focusing on slowing down and “allowing”. Most Yoga practices are a balance of Yin and Yang energy – heating, invigorating and active work complemented with cooling, calming and resting. Similar to Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga focuses on the more calming or “Yin” element of the practice.
 
Yin Yoga focuses on releasing the deeper soft tissues of body; our ligaments, joints, fascia, and bones and places a particular emphasis on the areas of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. In Yin Yoga, we hold postures for longer periods of time to allow a gentle release within in the body, a return to the breath, the cultivation of mindfulness and the opportunity to truly experience the present moment.
 
$30 per person; Register before Saturday, October 29 and pay just $25!

Dinacharya: The Beautiful Ritual of Ayurvedic Daily Self-Care with Lisa Boldin Sat, Nov 19, 2016 at 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Ayurveda teaches us to live consciously and to listen to the messages our bodies share with us. We are each endowed with deep wisdom. Ayurveda also recognizes that when we honor the cycles of nature, we bring ease, balance and health into our lives. Dinacharya is another word for daily self-care. The sacred hours of the morning are a perfect time to breathe, to meditate, to care for our sense organs, to massage our bodies with warm oil. This practice calms our nervous system, nourishes the tissues of our physical body and energizes our entire being.

• Hear how the times of day, the seasons of the year and the cycles of life play a role in our health
• Learn how to properly cleanse your mouth, eyes and nasal passages
• Experience the benefits of pranayama or yogic breathing
• Explore the different types of meditation
• Understand why giving yourself a warm oil massage affects more than your skin
• Discover the ways you can invite movement into your daily flow

You will also get your very own Ayurvedic self-care goodie bag to take home, including a body oil sample, nasya oil and a tongue scraper.
