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.
*Due to the Glitzy Garage Sale preparation, conditions for this class may be less than ideal. This class may be held in a different location at Womanspace.
Register by the day prior to class.
Fridays, May 3, 10, 17, & 24th (No class on May 31st, due to Glitzy Garage Sale!)

Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. With regular practice, Yoga Nidra has been found to reduce stress, tension, anxiety and depression. Additionally, Yoga Nidra is beneficial for insomnia, aids in calming symptoms of chronic pain, and has been shown to help those with PTSD or other psychological wounds. It is said that one hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to 4 hours or sleep! Learn this practice of self-inquiry. Restore your energy and relax into the real you. Expect to spend the majority of this class reclined on your yoga mat on the floor. (Please talk with Keri before class begins if you need to be seated.)
Class is open to all. No experience necessary.
