The new year offers the opportunity for a new beginning - a pen resting on a blank page. As long as we are practicing yoga, we are beginning.
Join Dorinda on New Year’s Day to relax, reflect, and renew. This extended restorative yoga practice will help ease the transition into 2023.
Restorative yoga helps to eliminate fatigue and stress that results from daily activities. It also aids in recovery from illness, injury, and trauma. A consistent restorative practice helps the body achieve optimal health. Through a mindful sequence of restorative asanas (yoga poses), we will compassionately set up the conditions that will allow our relaxation to unfold. There will be mindful readings and music selections to help enrich the practice.
Bring in 2023 with an afternoon of bliss and peace. What could be better after your busy holiday season? Treat yourself, and have a friend or partner join you!
Everyone is welcome - no previous yoga experience necessary. Dress in layers. If you prefer your own eye pillow, please bring it. Socks are also nice.
