with Tara Temple
Sunday, December 17
12:00pm – 1:30pm
Compassion finds us caring for others just as we would care for ourselves. This holiday season, both receive and give the gift of yoga to a community member in need by attending this donation based offering…
Please join Tara Temple as she weaves together two methods of healing yoga – Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra – in order to bring you the ultimate in peace and relaxation. Live guitar styling by Wolf further sets the stage for what will prove to be a truly amazing experience.
This workshop will begin with Restorative Yoga, which takes poses that are usually active, brings them to the floor, and transforms them into passive poses with the support of bolsters (large pillows), blankets, and blocks. As a result, practitioners are able to hold a pose for an extended amount of time as the body gently stretches, opens and releases tension. Body, breath, and mind are united, as this healing yoga practices fosters deep relaxation, restoration, and numerous other benefits. Dimmed lights, calming live guitar, and aromatherapy will enhance an already soothing and peaceful experience.
Tara will then end the workshop with Yoga Nidra (Divine Sleep). This is a guided meditation that will awaken your whole being – the physical, energetic, mental, emotional, and spiritual layers (called koshas). There is nothing required of you but to lie down and listen as you become aware of each layer 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 and whole just as you are. As your journey unfolds, you will become radiant, joyful, and light. No yoga experience is required and every level of student is welcome. Especially nurturing for those with chronic illness, injury or pain.
