RELAX, RECEIVE & RESTORE: RESTORATIVE YOGA & REIKI w/ Jody Raso
Come and experience a unique combination of Restorative Yoga & Reiki. Breathe and let go into cushions and props that are positioned to support the body in releasing tension and stress. As you relax, you’ll be offered Reiki, a gentle, hands-on technique that channels life force energy through the subtle body to promote deep relaxation, balance and well-being. This practice encourages the nervous system to quiet and allows for healing on a physical and emotional level. Essential oils will also be utilized to support the nervous system and create a sense of calm & peace.
WHEN: OCTOBER 15th
TIME: 6-8 PM

This Six week series will walk students carefully through the building blocks of a full vinyasa class in installments.
Class 1 will begin with an understanding of ujayii pranayama, or “victorious breath” used in vinyasa yoga, followed by warm up poses. The class will step through the elements of a Sun Salutation sequence, focusing on each pose in the sequence individually, eventually linking them into a flowing movement.
Class 2 will focus on several standing poses such as the Warrior poses, side angles, and standing balance poses.
Class 3 will explore forward bends and twists.
Class 4 will link all the elements of the first three classes, and move to an exploration of back bending poses as well as one or two beginner level inversions.
Class 5 & 6 will incorporate all that has been learned so far, and will be an opportunity to flow through a beginner class in a supportive, gentle environment….leaving space for questions on prop usage for modifying poses based on individual needs.
The series of 6 classes will leave students able to then move into our 1/2 and mixed level classes if they wish to. Students may also choose to repeat the fundamentals as many times as they like until they feel ready/able to move into the general classes.

Can’t catch your breath?
Throughout the day, when we experience stress, our bodies automatically react in ways that prepare us to fight or run. In some cases of extreme danger, this physical response is helpful. However, a prolonged state of such agitation can cause physical damage to every part of the body and can lead to serious medical problems. Join Hastings Yoga in this series where we learn how meditation corrects much of the damage caused by stress, helping the body to repair itself, restoring the body to a calm state, and preventing new damage due to the physical effects of stress. Yoga and meditation instructor Joy Solomon will also describe and demonstrate focused breathing techniques that enhance the mind’s ability to stay present and to be fully engaged.
