Restorative yoga is a practice developed by an Osteopathic doctor that aims to settle and reprogram the nervous system.
With the pressure of modern life to go-go-go during even the coldest months of winter, restorative yoga practice gives us time and space to rest on a deep level. From stillness, comes movement. From rest, comes rejuvenation. Come enjoy two hours of relaxing, long held yogic positions and meditative visualization practices.
Class instruction will also include building an awareness of one’s “energetic anatomy”, as described by the meridian system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Sinéad is a final-semester graduate student of TCM, yoga teacher of 10+ years, and a qi gong instructor.

Inversions are revitalizing for the body, and refreshing for the mind.
By reversing the normal effects of gravity, they rest the heart, aid circulation, and relieve pressure from the lower back. Proper practice of inversions creates strength, confidence, calmness and clarity of mind.
This workshop is for beginner/intermediate level practitioners interested in learning inversions. We will workshop headstand, forearm balance, handstand, and shoulder stand. We will also focus on maintaining proper awareness and deep breathing while in the postures to achieve maximum benefit, and end with meditation.

We lack flexibility when we have tight hips & hamstrings. When hip flexors are restricted, they pull down and forward on the pelvis, tilting the pelvis forward and compress the lower back. Tight hamstrings limit hip extension, which rounds the back when bending forward.
Join us as we dive into the hips & hamstrings with a series of poses designed to gently release the stiffness in the lower body. We will spend time exploring the anatomy of this region as we use the breath to gently open and lengthen these muscles.

Join Logan and your fellow Yoga Mayu community for an afternoon of core work and restorative yoga.
We’ll spend the beginning of class talking about what the core actually is. Contrary to popular belief, the core consists of much more that just abdominals.
Then we’ll move into strengthening the core and learning various exercises we can do in class and at home. The last half of class will be spent restoring the body from all the work we just completed.
We’ll use bolsters, blankets, blocks, sandbags, and eye pillows to settle into relaxing postures - allowing the body, and mind the much needed relaxation it deserves.
All levels are welcome!
