Restorative yoga aids in resetting the body both physically and mentally by combining breath and body awareness. This class will have you feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to start a new week. Open to all levels of yoga practitioners.

Yoga for Chronic Pain and Fatigue

August 6 – September 10
Sundays  4:30-5:45pm
Series: $50  Drop-ins: $10

Yoga works on a very subtle level – not only on the physical body but also on the mind,  the emotions and the spiritual aspect of a person’s nature. Physically it works on muscles and joints but also on nerves, organs and glands, and it illustrates that we cannot work on one area of the self without affecting another.

Yoga encourages the balance of our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states through the gentle use of physical movements, held positions, breathing techniques, relaxation and meditation and aids in the body’s ability to heal when any of the body’s functions has become disturbed (or out of balance).

The aim of this 6 week series is to help you:

*Improve Relaxing and Sleeping

*Alleviate build-up of lactic acid in the muscles

*Increase Tolerance to exercise

*Learn Energy Conservation

*Reduce Stress and Pain

*Promote Circulation

*Shift awareness around health

*Invite healing
