Winter Solstice Restorative Yoga with Amy Duncan
Sunday December 20th, 4 – 6pm or Monday December 21st 6-8pm
Join Amy Duncan for her annual Winter Solstice Restorative Yoga class. This year we are offering two class timings.
The root of the word solstice comes from a Latin word that means to stand or to stay still. At this time of year, what better than to be reminded to be still, to take time to be quiet. While the days become shorter and darker, and plants and animals hibernate, we extend our work/awake time longer and longer each day.
Take just two hours to quiet your mind, relax your body and refresh your spirit with a restorative yoga class. While all the poses in yoga are considered restorative, there are a series of poses that require little or no exertion on the student’s part. One is able to be in a pose for a longer period of time and thereby able to go deeper into the pose. These poses will bring a balance to the overworked and stressed systems of the human body.
This class will include poses to lengthen and stretch the body before the longer and quieting poses, as well as breathing and meditation. All levels are welcome. Poses will be adapted as needed.
How to prepare for the class: Wear comfortable clothing. You may bring socks and a sweater/sweatshirt to wear during the quieter poses. Please come with an empty stomach.
