Restorative Yoga Workshop

                                                     Restorative Yoga Workshop

with Bev Gray and Susannah Azzaro
Friday, Dec 7 at 7 pm

Ah, the holidays. A time of family, friends, food and celebration. A time when many of us extend ourselves too much, not taking the time to care for ourselves. This can lead to illness and damper your holiday joy. Take an evening to nourish yourself with me and Susannah, and replenish your joy!

Restorative yoga poses help relieve the effects of chronic stress and help you to develop body and mind awareness.  During this workshop, you will have the opportunity to quietly rest in soothing and supported postures, using blankets, bolsters and pillows.  All postures are done in a passive manner with lots of support; no previous yoga experience is required!

Pre-registration is required. 48 hour notice is required for refunds.
