10:30-12:30 Yoga Session Theme: Nurturance and Grounding

The Yoga Tradition states that the premise of yoga practice is to bring what is unconscious to the conscious mind and be present for whatever comes up. Therefore we will begin the practices with poses and breath work that promote stability, calm, grounding and nurturance. We will work on balancing the body and mind while we slow down the chatter in the mind.

This practice will include prana yama (breath work), Asana (poses) and Savanna (deep relaxation – integration). It will culminate with a short meditation.
