Join Sherry Younker RMT, RYT for this 75 minute class. This class is designed to slowly build from the ground up. We'll start wtih preparing the body and breath, and stack and flow the basic poses to a peak that is both accessible and nourishing. We'll then wind the mindbody down and complete the class with slow stretches and deep rest practices to restore and balance the system. Classes will have an area of focus each week, but will move and breathe the entire body. Some yoga experience required. Flows may be modified or omitted to suit your needs, but we will spend time on the wrists and knees. The final rest pose will be an extended restorative practice to best prepare for sleep. I can't wait to practice with you!
Pre-registration is required to secure your space. Space for drop-in attendance may vary week to week. Please email Sherry.firstname.lastname@example.org a minimum of 6 hours prior to class to confirm availability.

Yoga Nidra is deep rest for the body, mind and spirit. Similar to guided meditation, this practice is a restorative style of yoga that takes the student beyond relaxation accessing all levels of being. Sandy uses Restorative Yoga postures to prepare the body rest and surrender. Sandy has been guiding students to calmness and wellbeing since 2008 helping them access deep peace, intuition and joy. In addition, as a Reiki Master/Teacher, Sandy holds space for her students using ancient symbols to help transmit Universal healing energy. Nothing to do but lie down, listen and receive.
No experience is necessary
Regular classes during the week are 60 minutes. Longer 90 minute classes on occasion
With Sandy- email@example.com
A 90-min Yin Yoga practice suitable for all ages and experience levels. This practice is designed to create awareness of the deeper tissues including the network of fascia that connects our bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles and supports the organs. We move into and out of the postures slowly and hold them for 3-7 minutes. Holding a position enables us to take stock of what and where we feel sensations, adjust as appropriate and then relax into stillness in the posture. Breath Coaching is also provided which helps us focus on specific areas of tension and recover mobility where it has been lost. No two bodies are alike and in fact our bodies are different left to right. This practice ensures a deeper experience for each student - no two will look alike in any posture and we use props to suit each individual experience.

Let your cares go and sink into the relaxing and healing sounds of resonant instruments, infused with a little chanting, reiki and drumming.
Together we will raise our vibrations and let our inner moonbeams shine brightly!
About Sound Journeys:
Sound journeys massage our bodies, minds and spirits with healing sounds. This can help our noisy "monkey minds" get quiet as we shift to a Theta brainwave state from our usual Beta and Alpha states.
This is where we relax deeply and experience peace and healing on a cellular level.
What to expect:
Plan on relaxing in a way that ordinary life can make it hard to do. Come without expectations of yourself or others and bring an open mind and heart.
We will set our personal intentions, and direct our collective energy to release our inner light and highest frequency for the world.
This will be a sensory fusion of nature sounds and deep vibrations. A 32" wind gong, crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, chimes, Ocean Drum, hand drum, bells and more will be used during this sound meditation experience to bathe you in beautiful resonance!

WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
Mindfulness is all about learning to stay connected to the current moment and increasing your awareness of ingrained patterns of thinking and behaviour. If we can learn to recognize when our “doing mind” takes over, this will allow us to respond rather than react to whatever situation it is that we are in. Think of all the wasted mental energy spent dwelling in the past or living in the future. Both of these patterns of thinking can take away from our life which is unfolding only in the present moment.
