Roll + Release + Restore

April 13, 2019, 1:30-4pm

at Namaste Grand Lake

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.
