Yoga for the Rest of Us
Have you always wanted to try yoga? Have you been waiting for a good time to start? Waiting for a time when you are more flexible, fit or peaceful? Restorative yoga may be the place to start. Restorative yoga is suitable for anyone, any fitness level, and is adaptable enough to meet you exactly where you are right now.
Restorative yoga is a gentle and effective approach to whole body healing. The emphasis in restorative yoga is on the word rest. True rest is the same as acceptance, and restorative yoga is about learning to meet your body just as it is right now. From there we learn how to adapt each yoga pose to suit your unique body type in a way that really works for you to get the most beneficial results.

Fascia Yoga* workshops, day retreats and intensives:
Saturday: Elasticity Fascia yoga workshop
August 22nd ~ 10:00 – 12:00 ~ for $40
In this workshop we will be learning about the elastic component of the fascia system and how to release restrictions. (Imagine an elastic band that is pulled tightly and has no more ‘give.’) We will learn why this happens and how to correct it; this will bring your body’s ability to absorb shocks and impacts back to a healthy state, which prevents injuries and speeds healing. We will also discover why this information is important to understand when it comes to chronic posture holding patterns and a healthy yoga practice.
Saturday: Chronic Pain Fascia yoga workshop
September 12 10:00 – 12:00 ~ for $40 Class Full
If you are living with chronic pain or stress, this class is for you! We will be learning about proprioception, and using mindfulness mediation to become more aware of that ‘sixth sense.’ We will also discover how your fascial system is a sensory organ and what that means for managing chronic pain or stress. Additionally, we will be discussing how to remove negative habit patterns through body awareness, and how to re-train the body to move toward healthier and more conscious choices.
No yoga experience necessary, all levels welcome.
Saturday: ‘Free your Fascia’ yoga workshop
September 26th ~ 10:00 – 12:00 ~ for $40
Using a combination of restorative yoga, Hakomi, and myofascial release therapy, we will unwind body tension and retrain the body to enter into healthier postural patterns. We will also enter into mindfulness in order to understand the body’s current holding patterns, and to learn how we can change them.
Saturday: Align your pelvis ~ Fascia Yoga workshop
November 21st ~ 10:00 – 12:00 ~ for $40
Improve your posture and your health by creating a healthy stable pelvis! Did you know that chronic low back pain and shoulder tension are often symptoms of a misaligned pelvis?
