The Benefits of Using Crystals in Your Yoga Practice

Saturday, October 26, 1:00 – 2:30 pm, $15

Amanda Lippner, RYT, uses crystals in her job and daily in her personal life. In this workshop, she’ll share with us some basic information about crystals and their properties before leading us in a class using them.

We’ll start with a short meditation practice and then move on to a few restorative poses incorporating our crystals and end with savasana. Class is limited to 8 so everyone will be able to use our props during the restorative practice.

Bring your favorite crystals and the stones you’d like to work with. Some crystals will be available for use. Other crystals and crystal-related items available for purchase (cash only please).

Class is limited to 8 so please pre-register to reserve your spot!

Gentle Touch Restorative Yoga

Monthly, Monday evenings 7:15-8:30 pm, $15

Next dates: October 16

Sink into bliss with restorative yoga. Experience deeper levels of relaxation as you give yourself permission to rest, balance, restore and tap into new sources of energy. In our fast-paced world, the opportunities to completely relax are few and far between. Our bodies are overworked and our minds are over-stimulated. Restorative yoga eliminates muscular tension as well as mental and emotional stress.

In restorative yoga, props are used to fully support the body and to help in releasing layers of tension. Sequences typically have only five or six poses, are held for five minutes or more and include light twists, seated forward folds and gentle backbends.

You’ve earned this time to take care of yourself. You deserve to feel this good.

Class limited to 8 so be sure to message us on Facebook to reserve your spot or pay now to ensure your place.
