A 90 minute Restorative Class Infused with Thai Yoga Massage Assists.
Thai yoga massage is a unique healing system where the practicioner guides the client through yoga postures while palming and thumbing along the body's energy lines. Together these actions result in a full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system, and balances the body energetically. As this workshop is limited to 6 participants, each student will receive approximately 1 minute of hands on time during each restorative posture.
Saturday, January 13th from 1:30-3:30 with Lara Frankom - $30 plus HST
For those students who enjoy consistency, measuring challenges and progression, a set sequence is a perfect place to touch base with your practice regularly. This sequence was written to be a full spectrum yoga practice covering all areas of the body and most groups of yoga poses. It combines strength, flexibility and mindfulness in all major areas of the body. In this two hour workshop students can learn the sequence, with the focus being that in time students will be able to practice at their own pace and with their own breath. Some previous experience would be beneficial, but not necessary, as the sequence was written to be progressive and adaptable to the individual student.
