All Levels Slow Flow with Roll & Release

Focused on increasing proprioception, strength, and mobility of your body and your joints, this class will deepen your understanding of your body and it’s relation to movement through the foundation and alignment of Yoga poses and unique targeted exercises.  Using a yogic lens of awareness, conscious relaxation, and strategic breathing techniques, the class begins with targeted self massage using Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls to bring increased awareness and increased blood flow and fluid to the multiple layers of connective tissues, followed by gentle flowing sequences to warm and nourish the body.  Through intelligent and effective sequencing we will also explore many unique and challenging asanas (physical poses) and exercises that increase core, joint, and overall strength and stability.  Near the end, we integrate short sequences of yin and restorative yoga to still and settle the mind and body and re-balance our energy.  Open to beginners and anyone looking to transform their physical practice into an intimate understanding and a playground of exploration.  Come de-stress, uplift, restore, and rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit with us!

Tranquility: An Eclectic Restorative Practice by Marcie Storch

This gentle restorative practice is an antidote to life’s daily turbulence. We’ll create the conditions for relaxation through an eclectic mix of restorative practices. With mindfulness, we will begin by exploring guided self massage using Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls to provide targeted trigger point healing that penetrates layers of tissue and muscle to massage deeply into your high-tension or over-stressed areas.  We’ll then explore mudras and guided meditations to begin to slow down.  Finally, we will use props like bolsters and blankets to support our body in asanas (postures) that are grounded and longer held, in order to trigger the parasympathetic nervous system’s response.  As we turn our attention inward, we allow areas of stress and tension to melt away. Our bodies feel the benefit of increased awareness and our energy is re-balanced. As we do less, stillness arrives, and we receive the gift of discovery of our own inner light, clarity and peace.
