A Step To Health
New Yin and Restorative Yoga class
Beginning April 1, we have a brand new weekly class at The Studio on Mondays from 6-7:15pm. Join AnnMarie Mello-Morris for this deeply relaxing practice. Check out the description below to learn what you can expect in class!
Yin and Restorative Yoga are both yoga practices that include releasing stored tension from the body while calming the busy mind. Both promote meditation and the relaxation response that allows the mind and body to fully relax and restore. Experience the decrease of muscle tension, breathing rate and busy thoughts. This is a place of stillness that offers the opportunity for letting go, being fully present, and connecting with inner bliss and happiness.
The yin yoga practice focuses on holding poses for 2-5 minutes for lengthening and releasing from deep fascia and connective tissue. The restorative yoga practice focuses on supported poses for 3-8 minutes for the body to fully relax into each pose.
This class offers personal guidance, assistance and moments of silence to experience the true benefits of each practice. Poses are usually held are on the ground with many props offered, including bolsters, blocks and blankets, to find support needed specific to each person. After class, participants will feel calmer, lighter and re-awakened with a new sense of clarity and awareness.
Join AnnMarie as she adds her years of study in physical therapy and yoga therapy, and her personal passion to assist others to the reflective meditative practice of yin and restorative yoga.
Yin and Restorative Yoga is offered each Monday at 6pm starting April 1, 2019. No yoga experience required. All levels are welcomed. Reserve your spot in class!
