Restorative Yoga and the Relaxing Effects of Essential Oils
Sunday, September 23rd
1:00p.m. – 4:30p.m.
Join Chris Morton and Ashley Matthews and let yourself be healed and nurtured from within during this three and a half-hour program consisting of gentle, supported postures accompanied by breath awareness. Restorative poses are poses of “being” rather than “doing.” By supporting the body with props, the body and brain become quiet and relaxed. In this relaxed state, physiological changes occur which help to restore health and reduce the effects of chronic stress.
In addition, Jan Swindlehurst, an aromatherapy educator, will introduce several essential oils used to enhance meditation and yoga. She will discuss how certain oils like Frankincense and Lavender can support relaxation and help you get even more out of your yoga and meditation practices. You’ll receive samples of four oils that you can use in the program and take with you at the end of the day.
Prior yoga experience is helpful but not required.
Mark your calendars for future Fall restorative classes: October 21 & November 18 1:00p.m.– 4:30p.m.
