Complete Practice: Twists and Laterals w/ Cilla and Noah
Sunday, December 16th, 8-10:30am
Join us for a two and a half hour complete practice incorporating the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of yoga. Class begins w/ grounding mantra and intention setting. As we move through a Hatha flow, we pay careful attention to our engagement, alignment and breath. Postures are held for longer and the class is structured with a building affect, each posture preparing us for something a little bit deeper or more challenging in the practice. Students are encouraged to use their own discernment whether they stay with the foundational variation of a posture or decide that they are ready to push past their comfort zone and challenge themselves by trying advanced asana postures. We will practice a strong standing series to build heat, strength and stabilty before winding down the practice with longer held restorative postures to release stored tension and prepare for pranayama and meditation. After a long shavasana, we join together for guided pranayama and mantra. Those of us who practice regularly know that an hour can go by so quickly, when we take the time and care to prepare our body and mind w/ this longer style class we are able to go deeper in our meditation practice.
Some experience preferred but modifications are offered for those new to the practice. Can be physically and mentally challenging for some, but all levels are encouraged, especially those who wish to deepen their practice, not only of the physical body, but of the more subtle aspects of the breath and mind.
This particular asana sequence will focus on side bending and twists to create space and balance for pranayama.
Asana, Pranayama w/ Cilla E-RYT800

Guided by Priscilla
Yoga Nidra is an ancient and accessible technique that can lead us toward greater self-awareness and implement positive transformation in our lives. Nidra means “sleep” in sanskrit, so this practice can be considered “yogic sleep”, only we are not really sleeping, but rather reaching a relaxed state of consciousness that is in-between wakefulness and sleep. It is more like conscious sleep, where we use a systematic method to induce physical, mental and emotional relaxation but the Self stays awake and aware.
Yoga Nidra is an extremely accessible practice, because very little is required, except being comfortable, staying awake and listening to the guide. It can bring even those with no prior meditation experience into deeper levels of awareness. It is used as way to relax and improve sleep, but when practiced regularly with a solid Sankalpa (intention), this practice can change thought patterns, reaction processes, and give us more purpose, direction, and connection.
Wear comfortable clothing- props provided but there may only be enough blankets for everyone to have one- we recommend bringing a second blanket so you can have one under and over. Anything else you'd like to bring to be comfortable (eye pillow, pillow, slippers, etc.)
Candlelight Yin and Reiki Restorative w/ Kaleigh
Sunday, Dec 16th, Jan 20th 5-7pm
It is easy in this day and age to run through life feeling stressed, scattered and disconnected. Join Kaleigh Mulpeter (E-RYT 200, Reiki 2) for a candlelit evening of slow, grounded movement to bring a bit more balance into your life. This two hour workshop will utilize yin and restorative yoga, calming-pranayama (breath-work), soothing essential oils and reiki energy healing to soothe your body and mind. Yin and restorative yoga use multiple props in order for the body to completely surrender, allowing us to release deeply embedded patterns of holding. By mindfully breathing, creating space in the body and cultivating mental presence we can take the benefits of yoga off of the mat and into our everyday lives. This workshop is open to all levels, all props provided. (Students may opt out of hands-on assists, reiki and essential oils as desired).
