Yoga Nidra with Michelle Reynolds, RYT-500

Yoga Nidra is a conscious deep sleep for extreme relaxation that is experienced through a guided supine meditation. In this 75 minute workshop, Michelle Felsenberg- Reynolds will instruct students on preparing a warm and comfortable platform on which to rest. She will then guide you into a deep state of relaxation using positive imagery. Yoga Nidra is a form of mind-body therapy that is especially beneficial for those who find it difficult to relax, suffer from stress or have trouble sleeping.

Self Myofascial Release (SMR) & Muscle Restoration Workshop

Every structure in the body — organs, muscles, nerves, blood vessels, etc. — is covered in a layer of fascia; it allows everything to run smoothly and slide without friction. Through the over-stress of our muscles, whether through overuse or trauma, our layers of fascia can get tears in them. When the tears don’t heal properly, the various layers of fascia in your body can adhere together in spots (called adhesions), which will cause pain and discomfort. These adhesions keep your muscles from working the way they’re supposed to, which keeps your body from living up to its potential for strong and natural movement.
This is where where foam rolling and other similar exercises come into play. When we put pressure on these adhesions, they are released, and we can get back to optimal physical performance.
SMR Will:
  • Increase elasticity and re-establish range of motion
  • Restore structural integrity by establishing proper muscle length-tension relationships
  • Target and break up scar tissue and adhesions
  • Assist in regaining a neutral posture and restore positive biomechanics
  • Flush your tissue, create pliability, and decrease pain
–All of which, allow a given muscle to function more efficiently.
If you own a foam roller, please bring it.   Otherwise, all props will be provided.

Candlelit Yin Yoga with Heather Jefferson, RYT-200

If you’re looking for a special treat for yourself, Yin Yoga is just the thing.  During a Yin practice, students experience long-held and fully supported poses that focus on stillness, coolness and yielding. Yin poses offer passive stretching of our deeper connective tissues. Yin poses are designed to mobilize and strengthen our joints, ligaments, and fascial networks for a truly long-lasting release of tension and tightness.
