Reduce Stress with Yoga Nidra

TBA

Our bodies have the ability to relax given the right circumstances. Restorative yoga uses supported poses held for a longer period of time to find rest and to restore fo the “fight or flight” mode that we often find ourselves. Yoga Nidra means Yogic Sleep and refers to the conscious awareness of the Deep Sleep state. In Yoga Nidra you leave the waking state, go past the dreaming state and then go to deep sleep, yet remain awake. Restorative yoga and Yoga Nidra have an immediate effect on heart rate, blood pressure and is a proven therapy for chronic stress, insomnia, trauma from past physical injuries, and other all-too-common ailments. Emphasis on complete muscular relaxation and comfort are emphasized to achieve a quiet state of mind and body. This class is great for everyone interested in a peaceful practice, including those new to yoga or recovering from injury or illness.


Meditation Online Sessions – TBA

Seated meditation practice that helps students explore their daily lives. It offers insights into how to live more peacefully and fully. The Latin root of the word meditation, mederi, means “to heal.” In our practice of meditation it does not mean thinking about how to fix the mind but how to be one with it. Meditation is the way to bring us back to ourselves, where we can really experience, explore, and be with ourselves. In stillness and silence of seated meditation, we glimpse and return to that deep inner nature that we have lost sight of amid the busyness and distraction of our minds and lives.

108 Sun Salutations

Join us for 108 Sun Salutations to welcome Fall! We will start with an intention for our practice.

The significants of 108, renowned mathematicians of Vedic culture viewed 108 as a number of the wholeness of existence and according to yogic tradition, there are 108 piths, or sacred sites, throughout India. There are also 108 Upanishads and 108 karma points, or sacred places of the body. Traditionally, malas are used for counting as you repeat a mantra or a prayer, much like the Catholic rosary. This number also connects the Sun, Moon, and Earth: The average distance of the Sun and the Moon to Earth is 108 times their respective diameters.

All are invited to practice, basic knowledge of the sun salutations is recommend but doing all 108 is not required. If you find that you can only do 10-108 you may still participate in this meditative practice. Join us for refreshments after our practice together.


The Yamas and Niyamas

The yamas and niyamas are the yogic version of ethical practices described by all world philosophies and religions.  The five restraints (yamas) guide us as we interact with the outside world. Five observances (niyamas)  guide us to listen to our conscience as it leads us to the life we were meant to live.  In order that the Yamas and Niyamas don’t become a list of “10 More Things I Should Do “ we need to put them into a yogic context.  Here is the plan for this two hour course:

Describing the dilemma.
*A few asanas to draw attention to body areas where problems begin.
*The Yamas and Niyamas:  What are they and what do they mean for us?
*61 Points:  guided relaxation for exploration and observation purposes
