About the event
Sunday May 14th
End Mother's Day with a gentle exhale! Join Aline Marie E-RYT, LMT and Jen Rizza, RYT, Wellness Guide and Reiki Master for a 90 minute yoga staycation into slow deep stretching and self directed myofascial release aka Yin Yoga followed by heavily propped restorative yoga poses with optional Reiki energy work offered by Jen. Although it's always helpful, no yoga or Reiki experience is necessary to attend.
Yin yoga traditionally is holding mindful supported stretches on the floor for upwards of 3 - 5 minutes. Our Yin practice for this class will be incredibly gentle with threads of softness to ease away any stress from the weekend and prepare you to be refreshed for the week! Restorative yoga places the body in a carefully constructed resting position propped up with blankets, bolsters and blocks to give the body the release of a yoga stretch with none of the work.
Reiki is a touch-less experience of pure kindness and loving energy flowing through and from the hands the practitioner to recipient. It's gentle, non-invasive and relaxing. Reiki is the Japanese practice of connecting with energy in the body to alchemize old or stagnant energies and invite in new and more supportive and more compatible energies, all for the recipient’s greatest and highest good.
While Aline is guiding the restorative poses and guided meditation, Jen will be going around the room during the restorative poses and placing her hands near your feet and/or crown of your head. This is an optional offering, we will have place cards set up to put near your mat if you prefer to pass on receiving the Reiki.
No prior yoga experience is necessary although it is helpful. All levels are welcome to explore this practice and give the body a much needed release from any and all tensions from life.
