Four Thursdays, 5 – 7 pm PT

Come explore what it means to deeply rest in your own body and mind through Restorative Yoga and Zen. Restorative Yoga gives us an opportunity to balance the effort in our lives with ease and surrender. Our series will also include dharma offerings, seated meditation, gentle movement and stretching to complement our theme of cultivating ease, relaxation, and surrender during this time of upheaval and uncertainty.

Through gentle, supported poses, breath awareness and meditation, we will drop into a deep state of physiological relaxation. From this still place, the body is more able to access its natural ability to cleanse, heal, digest, sleep, conceive, and build immunities. With the physical body at rest, a sense of mental, emotional, and spiritual ease naturally follows. This practice is perfect for neutralizing the stress and sleeplessness induced by the pandemic.

The intention of this 4-class series is to provide a space once a week, for personal practice and connection during these unpredictable times. We will build community while finding ease through the practices of both Zen and yoga. The content of each class will be tailored to what arises at the beginning of each session and each class will end with a period of meditation and reflection.
