Now Enrolling: The Breathing Body – Renew and Restore Through Breath and Stillness
Join us for a refreshing weekend designed to offer an experiential understanding of the science and art of breath and relaxation. Explore asana to open and release the body in preparation for coming home to the natural breath. From the freedom of this conscious flow, we’ll examine classical breath techniques and their applications, both on and off the mat. After opening the body, mind and spirit with these breath explorations, we’ll spend Sunday diving deep into stillness, tranquility and rest.
For both workshop days: $285
For one workshop day: $150

Renew and Restore
Romi Kalova, C-IAYT
How well do we support ourselves and others? How much can we surrender to that support, and to life? Delve into the practice of Restorative Yoga–a supported, conscious body-mind relaxation practice. Using props such as blankets, bolsters, blocks, and cushions, learn to create a safe environment to allow the body to relax and open, and the mind to become quiet and reflective. Explore modifications and learn to elicit and receive feedback to lead our students and ourselves toward the profound healing possible through deep rest.
