around Winter Solstice are the darkest days of the year in the
Northern Hemisphere. This is a powerful, sacred time. It's also a
turning point, and we recognize it with a special practice to honor
and nurture the life force within.
This workshop begins with a practice of kundalini yoga to awaken energy, balance the body and bring the mind to stillness. Energy centers are balanced and unblocked, tension is released and deep rest occurs.
An extended gong bath will bring your body deep rest and restoration. You will emerge renewed with a sense of clarity and peace, in preparation to bloom again in the months ahead.
Join Amy and Alexis for a 90-minute restorative yoga workshop. Perfectly timed as a pre-holiday treat, this workshop will lead students into deep relaxation and rest. By allowing the body to rest, we allow the body to heal. This practice will help to activate and balance the parasympathetic nervous system, which reduces fatigue, anxiety, and stress, as well as promotes overall well-being.
All restorative poses are done seated or lying down, with the use of props to support the body. Each pose will be held for 10-15 minutes, allowing plenty of time to settle into each pose to find restoration, peace, and ease of the body and mind.
As Amy and Alexis are both yoga teachers and massage therapists, this workshop will include gentle touch during each pose, with your expressed consent. Great for all experience levels, especially for those looking for nourishment and self-care this time of year. Join us to rest, relax and restore before the holidays this year!
A personal and deeply meaningful experience, the yoga mala is a tradition consisting of 108 sun salutations practiced to welcome each new season of life. Join Lindsey Alexander on New Year's Day to set heartfelt intentions for the months ahead and to make space for growth and change. In this moving meditation, we’ll incorporate svadhyaya (self-reflection), ishvara pranidhana (surrender), and tapas (dedicated effort) as we flow from one surya namaskar to the next, all the way to 108.
Our practice will be divided into
4 sets of 27 sun salutations. Each round will have a unique
Round 1: Personal growth and
Round 2: Well-being for family and friends
Round 3: Well-being for the global community
Round 4: Dedication to a higher being or a concept (love, peace, compassion)
The mala is open to all practitioners, with time for rest and recuperation along the way. In addition to the asana, look forward to relaxing assists, meditation, and a sweet restorative savasana.
