This class will focus on moving the joints in the ways they like to be moved in their sockets, while using bolsters and blocks to stretch/ counter stretch repetitively trained muscles into a more open and spacious place. In this class you will also learn the sacred act of taking a pause and practical tools such as breath work and meditation.
In this class you will be guided to rest, recharge and renew the body through a series of yoga postures lasting approximately five minutes each. The use of yoga props such as bolsters, blocks and blankets assist the body in resetting the central nervous system.
