Yoga at Still Point Zen Center

$10 per class --- $65 for 8 Classes

NOTE: New time for Wednesday evening Core Basics yoga: 4:00-5:15 pm

Restorative Yoga:

An active, healing, stress reducing style of yoga which utilizes props to make it easier for the body to get into certain poses. The use of props provides a completely supportive environment for total relaxation.

The poses are specifically designed for times when you feel fatigued, weak, or stressed from daily life. These poses also can be useful as a practice when recovering from illness, injury or childbirth.

In Restorative Yoga the spine is flexed and extended in all directions. The connective tissues of the joints are stretched in gentle subtle movements that are held for 5-10 minutes at a time. These poses are recommended as an excellent starting point for beginners. They are also a wonderful complement to any sport that places a great emphasis on the use of larger muscles.

The Restorative Yoga class will combine meditation, breathing and relaxation exercises to leave you deeply relaxed, energized and physically refreshed for the rest of your day.

Tuesday mornings: 8:30-9:45 Restorative Yoga

Friday mornings: 8:30-9:45 Restorative Yoga
