Relax & Renew
Sunday August 19, 2-4 PM at Namah Shivaya
This special workshop is designed to help reduce stress and calm the body and mind for deep relaxation. We will begin with supported yoga postures, using props and gravity to passively stretch and open the body, followed by a 45 minute practice of Yoga Nidra, a guided meditation practice that is effective in reducing stress and anxiety and promoting restful sleep. (Plan a quiet, relaxing evening afterwards to maximize the benefits of this practice.) Mark your calendar and join us to rest, restore & receive the extraordinary benefits of this practice.

In this fun hands-on workshop we will use some gentle yoga to loosen up the body and relieve stress, then a short guided meditation to focus our intentions. Next we’ll listen to music designed to spark creativity as we browse through a selection of magazines for images that speak to us. Finally we’ll put it all together into a vision board collage that will help remind us of and inspire us towards our goals. All supplies provided.
