Location: Fireweed Farm
*Class size is limited to 8 people*
The postures and practices in this gentle yin yoga series allow for your central nervous system to slow down, giving your mind, body and spirit the ability to open and restore itself.
Static, passive floor postures are held for several minutes at at time, allowing the body and mind to sink in, relax and let go. This aids in the deep relaxation of the musculoskeletal system and its surrounding web of connective tissue, helping to restore suppleness and flexibility to the body.
Stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system encourages homeostasis, producing a sense of balance and allowing the body to enter a ‘rest and digest’ mode. This state is opposite to the ‘fight or flight’ mode that so many of us reside in on a daily basis, putting our bodies and mind into over drive and causing the sensation of being ‘wired and tired’.
The Whole Body Reset series helps to remind the body of its natural ability to find calm, ease, and flexibility. Guided breathing techniques and meditation will assist in deepening the relaxation process, helping to reset all divisions of your central nervous system for a better sense of well being, calm and openness.
about your instructor
Movement has always been a big part of Liz's life as the body is such a beautiful and all encompassing way of expressing ones self but it wasn’t until her last year of University that she discovered yoga. She quickly learned it was so much more than just movement. It was a way to heal, open up and be more grounded in herself. After practicing yoga for a few years she decided to take her 200 hour yoga teacher training. She was lucky to have a teacher who taught her the true roots of yoga which allowed her to transform her practice, herself and offer classes that are heartfelt and authentic. She has been teaching private and public classes since 2011.
