Slow Flow & Meditation @ Yoga Bliss
Feb 21 @ 9:30 AM – 10:45 AM

An uplifting class that begins with a seated pranayama (breath) exercise, followed by a slower paced yet invigorating vinyasa yoga practice. The last 15 minutes of class are dedicated to a long sweet savasana and instruction for a quiet period of meditation to help your mind calm and let your body relax and absorb the peace and stillness. If you are seeking detailed asana and meditation instruction, or desire a slower paced yoga practice with longer holds and focus on breath and proper alignment, this class is for you!  All levels welcome.

Gentle Flow @ Yoga Bliss
Feb 21 @ 6:45 PM – 7:45 PM

Gentle Flow classes begin with warm-ups and proceed to step-by-step asana instruction, providing you with an active yet gentle practice that focuses on breath work, strengthening of the core and back, stretching, toning, relaxation, and meditation. This class will help you open up areas of tightness, such as hips and shoulders, and get you moving with basic Sun Salutations sequences—always with suggestions for modifications and proper alignment. Perfect for those newer to yoga, or who desire a slower paced yoga practice in a supportive and fun environment.

All Levels Vinyasa Flow @ Sequoia Wellness
Feb 22 @ 4:45 PM – 5:45 PM

Vinyasa means “flow” and employs the technique of connecting postures, or asanas, into different sequences. This practice emphasizes matching breath to movement. Vinyasa yoga is one of the most commonly practiced styles in the West. It is derived from the Ashtanga series as developed by Sri Pattabhi Jois but differs from it in that a vinyasa class does not follow a set series of poses. Therefore, any vinyasa yoga class can vary widely from the next. As the name suggests, this yoga class consists of a mindful and fluid flow of poses, with a focus on the breath. This class is designed to help develop strength, improve flexibility and balance and reduce stress. Appropriate for students of all levels as modifications will be offered by the teacher.

Reiki, Restorative Yoga & Essential Oils Workshop @ Sailorway Middle School
Feb 24 @ 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

The use of essential oils and Reiki to enhance and complement the yoga practice has been used in many cultures around the world. Essential oils like Sandalwood and Vetiver aid the mind in sensory balance and rejuvenation. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction, energy realignment, and relaxation that promotes healing. Together, the combination of yoga, essential oils, and Reiki creates a total mind and body experience. This workshop will begin with a brief introduction to the qualities and benefits that essential oils and Reiki can provide to heal, cleanse, nourish your body and uplift your mood. A relaxing vinyasa practice to bring alignment to each of the chakras will follow with plenty of restorative poses and heart, chest, and shoulder openers that will leave you feeling more spacious and balanced from the inside out. Give yourself the gift of some well deserved nurturing time on your yoga mat.  You will leave the workshop relaxed and refreshed. If you have been curious about the benefits of essential oils and Reiki, please join Maria Santoferraro and Sarah Greenawalt a certified Reiki practitioner working with Practical and Traditional Usui Reiki systems for this workshop.  All levels are welcome. Workshop fee: $25 ($15 for Vermilion School Employees)
