This four week series will explore the benefits of doing restorative yoga poses and pranayama in quieting the mind, body, & soul. In a restorative practice, the body is supported by props in a way that allows it to relax and open up. It is important to include a restorative practice on a regular basis to balance the more active practice. Pranayama is defined as rhythmic control of the breath. It is the fourth limb of the Eight Limb Path of Yoga and is the “hub around which the wheel of yoga revolves.”*
Karin has been practicing yoga for the past 15 years and has been teaching for 8 years. She completed a teacher training course with Julie Lawrence, a two year apprenticeship program as well as a mentoring program towards certification with Nina Pileggi, and has studied with many internationally recognized teachers in the US and India. She is a Certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor at the Introductory II Level. Karin brings warmth and compassion to her teaching in a way that helps her students understand and perform the poses.
