This quick, 15-minute practice will help you create space in the body and relieve tension to calm the mind.
For busy bodies and minds, open movement is key. Use this quick practice to move through a variety of "feel-good" restorative yoga poses that will help release unneeded tension from your body and mind. You'll leave the mat feeling refreshed.
Thinking or worrying too much can manifest as tension in your body. Through this practice, you will discover how to reduce mental tension and stiffness around your neck and shoulders.
Although the mind can be busy during the day, it’s important to learn how to relax to get a peaceful night’s sleep. In this yoga for better sleep practice, we will use supported yoga poses to help our bodies relax, and yoga breathing exercises and guided meditation to help teach our minds to relax, and ultimately help you fall asleep.
This yoga practice is designed for anyone who would like to awaken the world around them. We'll use strong yoga poses, breath work and short-guided meditation to open our eyes and hearts to appreciate where we are right now.
Emotional stress can manifest physically as tension in our neck, shoulders, low back and even our legs. This restorative yoga for stress class focuses on supported postures that help lengthen tight muscles and create space in your body and your mind to relieve stress.
Anxiety appears in our minds when we allow fear and worry to take over, causing physical tension in the body. Through this restorative yoga for anxiety class, we will attempt to soothe anxiety through a grounding practice that helps you feel strong and confident in your body and mind.
Although fear can come in many forms, there are tools to deal with it. In this class, we focus on combating fear with easy yoga inversions.
