Prepare yourself for deep relaxation. This special 90 minute class will include 5-6 restful poses followed by a 45 minute yoga nidra to relieve stress. Pure bliss.
Held for 5-10 minutes, restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends. Most restorative practices are based on the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar. You are welcome to bring a bolster/cushion - two large blankets will be provided to support your postures and will be specially laundered after each use.
Yoga Nidra, or Yogic Sleep is a guided meditation practice intended to induce physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. Aside from being relaxing, restorative and restful, yoga nidra is known to ease insomnia, decrease anxiety, alleviate stress, reduce PTSD, chronic pain and chemical dependency and boost overall resiliency and emotional balance.

Join me in a new weekly class that focuses on developing your ability to use and understand Tai-ji-quan (also known as Tai Chi Chuan) and Qi-gong.
Each week we will practice energy cultivation (Qi-gong), gathering our energy using breath and movement.
Over time you will become adept in two Qi-gong forms which strengthen, lengthen and tone the body.
In the second half of the lesson we will learn the ‘Long Form’ from a series of choreographed Tai-ji-quan movements each having a therapeutic effect on the body.
Each movement has a purpose and a function, the movements also have interesting name such as ‘grasp the birds tail’ and my favorite ‘repulse the monkey’…
Coordinating movement can be daunting at first , therefore the lessons are always light hearted!This class is ‘internal’ and both art forms can be used as a method of, deep self-inquiry, singe pointed awareness or an opportunity to learn to embody and transcend your expression of physicality!
Eight Limbs Yoga Studio is pleased to offer Pilates with Maya every Wednesday at noon and Friday at 5pm! Head over to our class descriptions to find out more about it and our schedule page to book now!
