Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra or “Yogic Sleep” is a combination of relaxation, affirmation, respiration and visualization techniques that are used together to create deep relaxation in the physical body. This multidimensional approach to relaxation facilitates deep integration of mind, body and spirit. This practice is appropriate for anyone, regardless of your physical condition. Please dress comfortably and warmly in layers, as you will be lying in Savasana (Relaxation Pose) for an extended period of time. You may eat a light meal 1 hour before arriving. No yoga experience needed.

Partner Yoga

at Yoga Union

registration required, online at http://www.yogaunionct.com

Bring your best friend, partner, sibling or neighbor for this partner class. We’ll playfully take turns within yoga postures, with the assistance of our partner, to help deepen our experience. We’ll also learn postures to be in together using our bodies and sense of balance to support one another with ease. Partner yoga is a wonderful, easy way to deepen your own sensitivity to one another.

Daytime Restorative Yoga
Thursday, February 28
1-2:30 p.m.
$25
at the Chi Healing Center
(registration required; call and leave a message)

You asked for it! Join me for a daytime Restorative class. Slow down. Pause. Relax, and get home before dark! In this class, you will discover the richness in holding comfortable yoga poses, or rather, with the aid of props and blankets, allowing them to hold you. Your body will thank you as we explore the layers of relaxation in this deeply nurturing class. No yoga experience necessary. All welcome.

Class Descriptions

Yoga for Every Body–All Levels

These classes are mostly non-vinyasa which mean they move from posture to posture with longer holds. We have time to sink into postures, listen to our bodies and make adjustments and modifications to suit our individual and unique bodies. Special attention is given to alignment, safety and modifications for injury. Classes vary depending on the theme. A welcoming class for everyone. Every class is different based on YOUR needs!

Gentle Yoga and Gentle Therapeutic Yoga

Gentle stretching and strengthening yoga postures will be offered in this therapeutic practice for those with chronic injuries and conditions. If you have always wanted to join a yoga class but felt your condition disqualified you, this is your class. Everyone is welcomed, and modifications will be offered to make this class accessible to everyone. (Note: Gentle Yoga Plus will add a few extra challenges.)

Chair Yoga for Every Body

The benefits of yoga are not limited to those who can easily get up and down from the floor. Yoga is for Every Body, and in this class, the chair enables us to do many of the postures that are typically done on the floor with the aid of a chair. We will explore seated, standing and balancing poses, breath awareness, guided imagery and a variety of other yogic “tools” to help us stretch, strengthen and RELAX! This class is suitable for those new to yoga and all fitness levels.

Yin and Flow

Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of things, yang is the changing, moving, revealing aspect. Yin is a slow paced style of yoga with postures that are held for longer periods of time – for beginners it may range from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more. A flow class will combine a sequence of postures with the breath. Yin & Flow classes combine both the steady/unmoving and the changing/flowing elements into one class. The flow in this style of class will be gentle to moderate in pace.
