A SPRING CELEBRATION
Join Marianna for a Restorative Practice & Yoga Nidra to celebrate the Spring Equinox. The focus for the spring is to lighten up, cleanse & nourish. Spring cleaning in our homes can create a more organized and lighter feel both externally & internally. “Spring cleaning” on a physical & mental level allows us to let go of the heaviness we may be carrying. Lightening the diet in the spring allows us to release the heaviness we may experience in the body as we transition from winter in spring. Taking a day or two to rest helps the mind to clear & re-sets the nervous system allowing us to feel more clear, calm and connected.
Join Marianna to celebrate the renewal of spring, the return of the sun, gardening & all things OUTSIDE!
ABOUT THE PRACTICE
This practice will begin with gentle movement to help guide the mind from an active and busy state to a more relaxed state of being. The practice will also include restorative yoga postures in which you will use various yoga props to support the body. This support allows you to hold the postures for longer periods of time and encourages the full relaxation response. Class will conclude with Yoga Nidra which is a systematic meditation that is often called ‘Yogic Sleep’.
Yoga Nidra is done while supported in Savasana, and it is a guided meditation which often helps the practitioner stay more present and attentive.
