Restorative Yoga with Jen Zimmerman Bronder & Carol Daly – First Sunday of the Month

Restorative yoga and other healing-based yoga practices such as yoga nidra are part of a thousands of years old wisdom tradition. Unlike the dynamic movement of a typical yoga class, restorative yoga is slow-paced and incorporates the use of props to fully support the body in a few simple postures.  As restorative postures are comfortably held for 5 – 15 minutes, we deeply relax to replenish our stores of energy and recover a sense of calmness. We hope you will join us soon for one of our new monthly Restorative Yoga classes. Restorative yoga classes are located in Studio A; class size is limited to 6.
