Yoga Nidra 

Every 2nd Sunday of the Month

with Melissa Ahrens

6pm – 7:15pm

Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, is a guided meditation that allows you to slow down mentally and feel better physically.  Since this is a guided meditation  (versus a silent mediation) practice, it makes it a little easier to keep your mind from wondering and less agitation occurs as the teacher takes you through points of focus and lays the groundwork for letting go and relaxing.  This meditative practice also includes restorative yoga poses to make it that much sweeter!
No experience necessary.  All are welcome.  This is a regularly priced yoga class that happens only once a month.

Trauma & Tension Release Yoga

Sunday, October 14th

1pm-2:30pm

with Danielle Dickinson

Based on the healing technique of T.R.E. (Trauma and Tension Releasing Exercises) from Dr. David Berceli this unique yoga class will incorporate your typical vinyasa flow with a specific focus on fatiguing the leg muscles and lengthening the psoas. After a 60 minute strong, all levels yoga class, we’ll move into positions where we’ll allow space for neurogenic tremoring. Class ends with a deeply relaxing savasana (final supine meditation).  All levels of yoga practitioners welcome.  For questions about this practice, send us an email at info@yogaforallbeings.com.
Workshop is $25.  Auto Pay Members receive 10% off.  To sign up for this workshop, click here.
