Deep Breaths, Calm Mind: Restorative Iyengar Yoga with Meghan (Feb 2017)
Join Iyengar yoga instructor Meghan Goodman for a combination of calming Restorative postures, gentle stretching, and breathing exercises that will leave you feeling mentally and physically refreshed. This class will focus on postures that open the front, sides and back of the lung to prepare the body for better breathing. Then we will rest in restorative chest opening postures where the body can relax and open in more subtle ways. The breathing exercises we explore will create freedom in the respiratory organs while soothing and quietening the nerves and brain. Learn to find more space in your body from the inside out, and discover the breath’s subtle yet powerful effects. Between classes students will be encouraged to practice on their own and come back the next week with observations and questions.
This class is appropriate for beginners, those working with pain or injuries, and everyone else.
