This is a slower paced class that works deeply into connective tissues through the extended holding of asanas (postures), typically 3-5 minutes. Targeting especially the hips, pelvis and lower spine, this practice emphasizes deep tissue opening and restoration. The connection between body and mind is supported through contemplative practice during extended asanas and is ideal for those interested in exploring a meditative experience. Utilizing props such as blocks, bolsters, and blankets, this class is suitable for all levels and is a perfect compliment to other more vigorous yoga practices. Experience includes storytelling, live music, chant (kirtan), and essential oils to support deep relaxation and vibrational healing.
