YIN and NIDRA: the interplay of relaxation with Shervon Laurice Sat, Jul 14, 2018 at 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
It’s Summer and we are at the peak of activity spending time with friends and family, getting outside, traveling and staying up late. It’s all fun, yet if not balanced with periods of down time we can be left feeling a bit drained and tired.

Could you use a break to rejuvenate? Join Shervon for an afternoon of deep relaxation as we explore Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra.

Yin Yoga invites you to slow down and be present while holding poses for time targeting your body's connective tissue, increasing your body's blood flow and energy. Yin helps calm and soothe your central nervous system activating your Relax, Rest and Digest response.

Yoga Nidra, also called yogic sleep, is the state of consciousness between wakefulness and sleep. It is the practice of getting the body completely relaxed while lying down to experience Deep Relaxation, Restoration and Healing. Nidra helps to reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, chronic pain and insomnia.

In this workshop, you will be guided through a calming Yin Yoga practice followed by a deeply relaxing Yoga Nidra practice. This workshop is suitable for all practitioners.

Cost:$35 early bird; $40 day of

Changing Habits with Mindfulness with Hugh Byrne Sun, Oct 7, 2018 at 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Almost all of us have habits that we want to change, but habits can be hard to change because of the automatic brain processes involved in habit formation. Mindfulness is a key to habit change—it brings into conscious awareness thought patterns and behavior that have become unconscious and automatic. Mindfulness makes the invisible visible empowering us to make helpful change in our lives.
This workshop provides:
• understanding of how habits form
• why they are hard to change
• the role of mindfulness in empowering change
• a path of action to make change.

You will learn to cultivate intention, attention, and attitude to identify behaviors you wish to change and establish a path of action to abandon unhealthy habits and establish more beneficial ones. This workshop is for anyone who wants to let go of an old habit and live with greater well-being and ease.

Cost: $55
