COMMUNITY RESTORATIVE YOGA and MEDITATION
Evening Restorative Yoga
(Doors opens at 6:45pm)
Restorative Yoga is a passive practice that allows the practitioner to safely and comfortably hold a posture for 6-8 minutes at a time. Each pose is completely supported by the use of blocks, blankets and bolsters. This style of yoga offers the unique benefits of each pose without the effort or aggression seen in most fitness based yoga classes. It is truly a practice meant for ALL BODIES!
Because we want you to receive the most beneficial practice, only 15 spaces are available. We use 15 poses in the class including pranayama and meditation. Each posture is pre-set and students rotate from one to the next every 6-8 minutes.
Restorative yoga can help to offset an overworked mind and body. It is a meditative practice that includes deep breathing with a focus on centering and grounding oneself in the moment. It is especially beneficial for women on their moon and /or trying to conceive.
The week of the New Moon will be accompanied by live music and is a two hour practice. Please note that this class is $25 and you must RSVP in advance.
The last Thursday of every month includes Mantra Meditation. One hour Restorative Yoga followed by one hour mantra meditation.
COST: $10 suggested donation, except for our New Moon/Live Music Practice which is $25.00.
Location: The Ark 107 Green St. #G55 Brooklyn, NY 11222 USA
Mats and props are provided!
