Grounding Into Gratitude- A Special Thanksgiving Day Class
Be Here Now Yoga, Healing and Wellness – This Thanksgiving, fall into the realms of deep relaxation with an extended practice featuring Flow + Yin. We’ll start by moving with our breath through a dynamic Flow sequence designed to strengthen the body and promote healthy digestion. Afterwards, we’ll transition into a restorative Yin practice that targets the connective tissue and releases tension beyond the surface of the muscles. Yin is rooted in Ancient Chinese Medicine, and uses the meridian lines to release chi (energy) and promote healing. It gives us the opportunity to cultivate mindful awareness by connecting with the sensations in the body during longer held postures. We’ll also journey through the chakras and have plenty of opportunities to journal our experience to better understand our thought patterns and attune to our inner wisdom. Class will end with a guided meditation, breathwork and a long savasana. Join us this Thanksgiving morning. Nourish your body. Unwind the mind and ground yourself in the gifts of presence and gratitude. Bring some paper and a pen!
