Release Into RESTORATIVE YOGA* with Karen Barbarisi and Keith Herndon
Saturday, February 24, 2-4pm ~ Join Karen Barbarisi and Keith Herndon for an 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 quiet and return to a balanced state, quieting the mind. At the same time the body gently stretches and opens, releasing even chronic patterns of tension. The afternoon will unfold with a brief sequence of flowing Kripalu yoga to warm up and prepare the body, then plunge into profound spheres of tranquility and ease. The class may also feature gentle chanting and Reiki to sooth and relax. $35 or class card x 2 + $5 at the door; $28 if registered by February 21 via email with Karen or Keith
