Release Into RESTORATIVE YOGA* with Karen Barbarisi and Keith Herndon
Saturday, August 27, 2-4pm ~ Join Karen and Keith for an in-depth experience of Restorative Yoga - a therapeutic system that uses the comfortable support of cushions & blankets to nurture the body in various gentle, long held resting postures. Restorative Yoga allows the nervous system to return to a balanced state, quieting the mind. At the same time the body gently stretches and opens, releasing even chronic patterns of tension. And, as attention focuses on each breath, Restorative Yoga also cultivates the qualities of mindfulness and presence. $35 or class card x 2 + $5 at the door; $28 if registered by 8/24 via email with Karen or Keith
