Intro to Yoga Series
3 Wednesdays, June 3, 10, 17
New to yoga? Want to establish a firmer foundation for your practice?
Join our Intro to Yoga Series for all the essentials you'll need to start or restart your yoga practice and develop the confidence to attend most classes at Namaste.
The bulk of the series will be centered in the physical practice, giving you the opportunity to explore the proper alignment of foundational poses and get comfortable with commonly used terminology. You will also learn how to use your breath to find stability and ease in your body. There will also be a bit of discussion about the history and philosophy of yoga, the different styles of yoga and what sets yoga apart from other forms of physical activity.
This workshop will be relaxed and fun and you will be encouraged to ask questions. No experience necessary. Come with a flexible mind and comfortable clothes!
Restorative Yoga 101
June 15, 2019, 2-4pm
at Namaste Rockridge
Rest first. Ask questions later.
The best and worst part of any Restorative yoga class is the props. Ever wondered why we use so many props and how Restorative yoga specifically benefits your health?
This class is intended to cover the A, B, Cs of Restorative yoga and provide you with refuge from the speed of your life. You’ll walk away feeling confident in how to use props to best support your Restorative practice as well as translate that knowledge into any other yoga discipline. Everything is better when we feel rested. Give your body the rest it deserves.
Roll + Release + Restore
July 13, 2019, 1:30-4pm
Can’t get away for a long weekend but in desperate need of a break? Roll away the stress and restore your nervous system with 2.5 hours of yoga therapy ball massage and restorative yoga.
This workshop will focus on releasing tension in the neck, shoulders and back through targeted self-massage. Then rest in supported restorative shapes for a luxurious two hours. You will also walk away with practical tools to build self-care into your daily routine without making it one more thing on your to-do list.
Wherever I am, the world comes after me.
It offers me its busyness. It does not believe
that I do not want it. Now I understand
why the old poets of China went so far and high
into the mountains, then crept into the pale mist.
– Mary Oliver
