yin, restorative & thai yoga workshops

Sandy LeBlanc & Assistants
3 Sundays, 2:30 – 4:00 pm,
Sept 16, Oct 14, Nov 11

Deep Release of Tight Muscles, and of Stress

Yin Yoga moves you carefully, safely into traditional Hatha postures with support for the joints, holding for time. This cues your nervous system, digestive system, and hormonal system (esp. adrenals) to move toward homeostasis. Restorative Yoga is also a quiet, slow practice moving into full support with great ease, using many props. In this workshop, we pair Yin and Restorative with Thai Yoga assists to stimulate fascia & meridians. (These assists are offered gently or deeply, depending on your preference.) Cost: $35 + hst, or two or more for $30 each + hst

To truly integrate minfulness, meditation and positve mindset into our daily live, we need to practce!

Mindfulness is a groundswell antidote to today’s intense pace. Meditation is an ancient art: becoming quiet, listening inward, and acknowledging our spirituality. Positive Mindset tools help us to utilize our strengths, build more positive influence and awareness, and reframe.

This 4-class series will teach simple meditation & mindfulness techniques, from Buddhist & Yogic traditions and MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction), as well as Positive Psychology. We’ll begin with gentle yoga to build union with body & mind. Focus on the breath, and other single-minded anchors as we practice mindfulness, guided & self-directed meditations, work with positive mindset tools, and end each session with Savasana.    

Cost: $80 + hst for the series, or $25 drop-in.
