RESTORATIVE YOGA WORKSHOP
Friday March 13th 6:30-8:30 pm
Restorative Yoga is a gentle, relaxing practice that utilizes many props to support the body in poses held for extended periods of time. This support allows the body to let go of deeply held muscular tension and stress while returning the autonomic nervous system to balance. Restorative practice creates feelings of deep rest and renewal, as your mind remains alert. While not a treatment, Restorative yoga can improves symptoms of anxiety and depression. Join Jessica Kasinoff as she shares her training and experience teaching Restorative Yoga. This is an all levels workshop. Cost: $20. Minimum of 3 participants necessary to sign up by Thurs Mar 12th. Visit EVENTS for more information and email Jane to reserve your space.
