Living Your Yoga
Oct. 21 & 22
Odd Fellows Hall, Santa Rosa
OCT. 21 ONLY ~ $185 - REGISTER
BOTH DAYS ~ $315 - REGISTER
What we do "on the mat" is given perspective by how we live our lives off the mat, and vice-versa. Practicing yoga over the years changes our life, and in turn our life changes our yoga practice
To help us to understand this relationship of yoga and life, we will begin each day with a short discussion about what it means to “live our yoga” in the most practical sense. This will be followed by an Active practice, and later with a Quiet Practice.
Our Active practice will focus on moving, strengthening, and warming with awareness and fun. Afternoon Quiet practice will focus on opening, the practice of Restorative poses, breathing, and sitting in silence.
Each day of this well-rounded practice will serve to center and inspire us as we open our hearts to living with compassion in the world.

Note: All students will need to bring the following props: a yoga mat, a yoga belt, an eye cover, a firm round OR square bolster, two 4 x 9 x 6 yoga blocks, and five firm blankets. The more props, the more relaxation bliss in Restorative yoga!
