Your Psoas, So What? Delve Inward to Deepen your Practice

Your Psoas, So What? Delve Inward to Deepen your Practice

Date:
17-Nov-2019
Time:
11:00am-1:30pm
Instructor:
Amy Cooper

Your Psoas (“so-az”) muscle plays an important role in postural stability, balance and mental poise. As true core muscles, the Psoas when restricted can hinder the function of our daily movements, breathing, energetic pathways and nervous system. Awareness of the Psoas muscles can create freedom and skillfulness in your yoga practice and in Life.

Additionally, the Psoas is one of the most important and deepest layer of muscles in the body, thus it can inform our yoga practice from the inside out as well as support an embodied, contemplative presence.

This class will begin with somatic awareness to locate, release and tone your Psoas muscles then we will fuse this awareness into familiar standing, balancing, backbending, inverting and seated yoga poses. After opening core pathways, the session will culminate with pranayama and meditation. Your practice will never be the same!

For students with a minimum of 6 months of yoga experience.

Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra

Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra

Date:
24-Nov-2019
Time:
5:00-7:00pm
Instructor:
Audrey DeLong

Join Level 1 Yoga Therapist Audrey DeLong for 2 powerful relaxation techniques: a 30-minute Yoga Nidra and 90-minutes of Restorative Yoga. Balancing the nervous system for stress reduction, relaxation, harmony, and healing, this is glorious self-care.

Yoga Nidra is a guided meditative journey that you take while resting (or sleeping!) in a "yoga nidra nest" of props. Think of this as adult nap time: a 30-minute Yoga Nidra is equal to 2-hours of sleep! Yoga Nidra is used to work on the subconscious mind to improve body/mind/spirit connection, build awareness, and reboot. Restorative Yoga balances our fast paced lifestyles and has an enormous capacity to heal physical and mental ailments. Through simple postures held for long periods of time we will use a lot of props to find deeper openings and profound release.


Suitable for all levels, this is about caring for ourselves so we can then care for others.
