Yoga-try: Yoga + Poetry (a series for renewal)
Please join us for any of our 4 restorative yoga + poetry classes designed to enhance relaxation and wellness for the spirit, mind and body.
"Restorative yoga poses are designed to open the body in a gentle and comfortable way. There is no forcing oneself into uncomfortable positions in this style of practice. In fact, many props are used in order to ensure comfort and support." It helps to boost the immune system and teaches participants how to bring calmness to the mind and total relaxation to the body. Julie uses light touch/massage as well to the temple and hands while you are relaxing in poses, and Jacinta reads delicately chosen verse to enhance the relaxation process. There's time too, at the end, for persons to write, if they are inspired. Each session has a different theme but each is designed for your ultimate renewal. No prior yoga or poetry experience in required to benefit from yoga-try. Bring your yoga mat, if you have one. Everything else will be provided.

"The poetry reading during the class helped your mind to focus on something soothing and not allow the events of the day to pop in and disrupt the yoga practice. I loved it." - Charlese

"I didn't think that restorative yoga would have such a long lasting effect. I think it's because the poses are much different than in the traditional yoga classes and we hold them longer; giving my body and mind time to relax." - Chris
