Restorative Yoga is the perfect antidote to the stress of modern life. It is the art of active relaxation; a refuge from our busy lives and an opportunity to slow down, let go and create ease.
 

In Restorative Yoga, we practice postures supported by blocks, blankets, bolsters and other props, which allow the body to gently and passively stretch and open. Following the physical practice, we will enjoy an extended relaxation, which will include a guided meditation accompanied to bring you to a state of emotional and mental peace. You will leave this workshop feeling calm, refreshed, renewed and restored.

 

$35; YB monthly members enjoy a 10% discount. Space is limited, so sign up as soon as possible!

Dinacharya: The Beautiful Ritual of Ayurvedic Daily Self-Care with Lisa Boldin . Sat, Feb 16, 2019 at 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

 
Ayurveda teaches us to live consciously and to listen to the messages our bodies share with us. We are each endowed with deep wisdom. Ayurveda also recognizes that when we honor the cycles of nature, we bring ease, balance and health into our lives. Dinacharya is another word for daily self-care. The sacred hours of the morning are a perfect time to breathe, to meditate, to care for our sense organs, to massage our bodies with warm oil. This practice calms our nervous system, nourishes the tissues of our physical body and energizes our entire being.

• Hear how the times of day, the seasons of the year and the cycles of life play a role in our health
• Learn how to properly cleanse your mouth, eyes and nasal passages
• Experience the benefits of pranayama or yogic breathing
• Explore the different types of meditation
• Understand why giving yourself a warm oil massage affects more than your skin
• Discover the ways you can invite movement into your daily flow

 

You will also get your very own Ayurvedic self-care goodie bag to take home, including body oil samples and a tongue scraper.

 

$40; YB monthly members enjoy a 10% discount.
