Exploring the Chakras through

Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra

With Gena Foreman

Saturday, August 11th | 6:00pm - 8:00pm | $30


Restorative Yoga is a practice in which the poses are supported by props and are held for a longer amount of time to encourage our nervous system to shift from “fight & flight” into a state of healing which occurs through real rest.  

Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) is a guided imagery to bring us into a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping to help facilitate the mind into deeper states of rest and relaxation.

Chakras (wheels) are spinning vortexes of energy in the subtle energetic body. Each chakra correlates with physical, emotional, and mental health that directly effects our well being. 

The first half of the workshop will focus on restorative yoga poses to enhance and relax into the seven chakras.  Guided visualizations and instructions about each chakra will accompany each pose. The second half will end with one hour of Yoga Nidra.

Join us for "Nia", a unique blend of dance, yoga, Chi Gong and Aikido, that promotes energy, strength and well-being.
Done barefoot, Nia's grounded approach maximizes body efficiency and teaches you to consciously move in a gentler way. The result is improved muscle tone, increased flexibility and endurance, and a calmer mind.
Nia blends the expressiveness of dance, the power of martial arts, and the wisdom of the healing arts. The guided practice creatively encourages students to move in ways that are natural to their bodies. Classes are adaptable to every age and fitness level.
Your instructor this month is Kelly Fitzgerald-Holland. Kelly holds a black belt in The Nia Technique. Since 1994, Kelly has been studying African-inspired dance and other movement forms, including belly dance, Sufi techniques, tribal-dance, tai chi, and yoga. She began her study and practice of Nia in 1999, and was certified as an instructor in the Nia Technique in 2004.
