Through the use of breath awareness, body scanning, healing music and nature imagery. Divine Sleep invites you to become aware of each layer of being without needing to change or fix anything. This is true meditation where there is nothing to do but to “notice” – supporting you in feeling empowered just as you are. This contemporary practice is based on ancient yogic wisdom and meditation to make a powerful tool for modern day life.

Restorative Yoga

Claire Manganello. Investment: $25

Embrace this opportunity to learn ways to quiet the nervous system, quiet the mind, connect with nature and to find harmony and balance in your life.
Restorative yoga is a nurturing practice that promotes deep relaxation and renewal within the body. Props such as bolsters, pillows and folded blankets support and stabilize the body in restorative yoga postures that are usually held for 3-10 minutes! The postures are designed to release deeply held tensions, sooth the nervous system, strengthen the immune system and refill our spiritual wells. Warm-up exercises, postures, meditation, and yogic breathing release stress and promote healing during this gentle practice. After a restorative yoga session, most people feel rested, renewed, more deeply connected to their authentic self, and more open to healing, growth and balance in their lives. Please consider nurturing your soul with one of these gentle but powerful classes.
