Nov 25 & Dec 15 || How to slow down with meditation & restorative yoga || One Yoga for the People, Vancouver

  • Sunday Nov 25  1:45-3:45 Heart Poses & Softening Stuck Thoughts

  • Saturday Dec 15 1:45-3:45 Hip Poses & Inviting Presence Into The Storm 

It’s no secret – life is full of ups and downs. Life can be chaotic physically & mentally and all these experiences live in the cells of our bodies. When we don’t create time to acknowledge or heal the imbalances in our nervous systems & emotional layers, we are at risk for various types of disease and anxiety.

Join Carolyn for two afternoons of two simple meditations and a restorative yoga session – the sweetest aspects of the yoga practice that are often neglected.  In meditation and restorative yoga, there’s an emphasis on conscious breathing & conscious relaxation which lead to a slowed heart rate, slowed breathing, better digestion and immunity.

You can expect to slow right down and release the tension tucked tight into all the crevasses of the body and mind. You will sleep better, breathe deeper and feel like you’ve come home to a more integrated version of yourself.

Be a rebel: stop all the ‘doing’ and tune in while relaxing in order to create change.

$30 each or $50 for both - Registration opening soon.
