Yoga for Stress Relief & Total Relaxation
Our busy lives can be very stressful, and with work, family, and social obligations it can feel overwhelming. This gentle yoga class is designed to give you a peaceful vacation from your busy life. If you suffer from stress, anxiety, or you’re simply feeling burned out, you can benefit from this class. We’ll focus on deep breathing, guided relaxation, and in our last class session you’ll experience Yoga Nidra which is translated to Yogic Sleep, a state of conscious for extreme relaxation and a subtler spiritual exploration. As tension dissolves you’ll feel refreshed, renewed and balanced. Join us to nourish and nurture your body, mind and spirit.
