Join Leigh Stewart and Alex Blefari for a morning workshop to rejuvenate the body's systems in a half flow, half yin class with hot stones, therapeutic-grade aromatherapy, hand-harvested teas and guided meditation.
Each Saturday, we will explore a different system of the body (reproductive, immune, excretory, nervous, & endocrine) with accompanying essential oils, hot stones and yin postures to promote health, balance and harmony throughout the body.
Yintegrate Calm Details:

Asana (bodywork) - targets fight of flight muscle groups in the body, mainly the quadriceps as well as chest openers, connecting the body's increased vulnerability and fearlessness with the calming of the nervous system. The asana portion of this class will explore a trauma-informed approach to movement.
Meditation - infinit hand mudra meditation
Pranayama (breathing) - 3 part yogic breath (belly breathing) proven to better oxygenate cells and decrease symptoms of stress and anxiety.
