Prenatal Yoga Sept/Oct 2014 with Bethany Earls Next held on Wed, Sep 24, 2014 at 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm
This enrollment runs from Wed Sep 10, 2014 - Wed Oct 15, 2014
This six-week workshop is designed especially for the pregnant practitioner. You will learn breathing and focusing techniques that will help you to relax during pregnancy and childbirth. You will practice postures that will help to:

• Create more opening in the hips and abdominal region, which will help make space for your baby;
• Alleviate tension in the back, neck and shoulders;
• Create more openness in the chest; and
• Increase circulation to help prevent swelling in the feet and ankles.

As your body changes with pregnancy, so will your yoga practice. We will modify poses based on which trimester you are in and how your are feeling. Most importantly, this class will honor your mother's intuition, reinforce your body awareness and improve your ability to practice self care during pregnancy and into motherhood. This class is also appropriate for post natal students.

$95 per student for the full six-week session. Drop-ins available for $17 per class.

Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra (Guided Relaxation) with Kate White 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.

$30 per person. Register before Saturday, December 6 and pay just $25!
