Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" - sun/stimulating energy with the "Tha" - moon/calming energy.
Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening. Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat.

All levels. Yoga Nidra means Yogic sleep; a state of conscious deep sleep where we learn to relax consciously. This class is deep relaxation with an inner state of awareness, which has been found to reduce stress, tension and anxiety. It is beneficial for insomnia and to calm symptoms of chronic pain, headaches, depression, high blood pressure, heart disease, autoimmune disease and has been shown to help those in recovery from addiction. Yoga Nidra also helps calm and clear the mind and has potential to provide emotional healing--restoring our body senses and mind to their natural functions. It is said that one hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to four hours of sleep.

TAP INTO THE WISDOM OF YOUR BODY
Each cell of our physical body is brimming with intelligence and wisdom. Physical symptoms and negative emotions are one of the ways this intelligence communicates with us by creating disruptions in our energy system. With EFT (Energy Field Tapping) we can tap directly on energy meridians and get the energy flowing again. When energy flows we feel more at ease and get to enjoy a greater sense of relaxation. It’s easy! All it takes is curiosity, fingers and a body! This introduction into the amazingly simple and effective world of tapping will empower you to continue tapping ANYWHERE!

Reiki (ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning 'Universal Life Force Energy' and describes the energy found in all of life. An ancient form of hands on energy healing, Reiki is a skill obtained through an attunement (opening) to bring the power of Universal Life Force Energy through the human chakra system. The energy then is used to balance the body or an object by bringing it into harmony with the universe once again.
In Reiki One, you will learn the hand positions for self-healing and for the healing treatment of others. We will talk about the seven major chakras and the history of the Usui System of Natural Healing. You will receive your first attunement. We will also have time to practice feeling energy and giving Reiki to each other.
Please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing, with no jewelry or perfumes. Bring a sack lunch.

Chakras are vital energy pathways that connect us to the cycles and rhythms of the Earth, to all aspects of ourselves and to the cosmic pulse of Creation. Awaken each of your chakra centers through the transformative power of freestyle movement and spontaneous expression of the physical body. When we open the flow of our physical being, all other pathways open! Wear loose fitting clothing and bring a mat.

Most of the time we exist in mindlessness, a state of semi-awareness governed by habit and inattention. Mindlessness causes us to suffer, probably more than we are even aware. Mindfulness can be defined in a variety of ways, but simply stated it is a deliberate way of paying attention to what is happening within oneself as it is happening. Mindfulness is moment-by-moment awareness. It’s paying attention without judgment or evaluation. When we are mindful, we become more mentally alert, we’re more open and attentive and we’re able to perceive ourselves more clearly – as well as observing details that often escape our notice. If you can identify with any of these statements, you may find this monthly group very helpful.
