New Year's Slow Flow with Yoga Nidra

Start 2019 with presence, purpose and balance....We will start with a 60 minute all levels slow flow yoga class, followed by a 45 minute Yoga Nidra. Nidra is yogic sleep....a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping.  The body is completely relaxed in savasana and guided meditation is used to systematically increase awareness of the inner landscape. Practitioners of yoga nidra report better sleep, less tension and anxiety and overall improvement in relationships to self and others. Join us as we begin the New Year with clarity, calm and community. Absolutely no experience necessary. (There will be a 15 minute intermish after Yoga before the Nidra if you want to do one or the other....)

Reuniting Yoga Workshop...on the road

For thousands of years, yoga was a spiritual practice that employed both meditation and the physical postures we now associate with yoga. It is only recently that yoga came to be defined primarily as a workout. Please join Beccy Stevenson and Matthew Ismail for a Reuniting Yoga Workshop at The Yoga Cave. In this workshop participants will:

  • Learn about yoga as a spiritual practice

  • Combine postures from Yin Yoga with a meditation practice

  • Learn about the Chakras

We look forward to helping you to deepen and extend your experience of yoga!

Reuniting Yoga Workshop...Part 2.

During Reuniting Yoga…Part 1, Matthew Ismail and Beccy Stevenson teamed up to combine postures from yin yoga with guided meditation. This proved successful in illustrating yoga as a spiritual practice and experiencing chakra based energy shifts in the physical body. Part 1 covered the first 4 chakras, now Part 2 will be based in chakras 5, 6 &7. A perfect opportunity to dig deeper into an already existing practice or learn something completely new. Attendance at Part 1 NOT a requirement for Part 2.
