Our physical body holds tension, stress and trauma sometimes years after an event. The holding patterns in the body impact the ways in which our muscles move and can affect our daily mobility as well as our athletic performance. This class will teach you ways to release the physical holds that result from stress, trauma and injury to help create an open physical network throughout your whole body. The goal of this practice is to promote healthy superficial fascia, which is the connective tissue between your skin and muscles. This class is a regular drop in price of $12 or use your class pass.

SAT 1/6/18 1-3PM $30

Looking for support with your New Year's goals? Need a nurturing space to let go of what no longer supports you?Join us for Breaking Barriers! 

Yin Yoga invites you to relax and settle into a seated or lying down pose, allowing the muscles to release leading to increased mobility in the joints and supportive tissue. The poses are held for longer periods to allow for a compete release of stored tension. As the muscles relax, trapped stress and emotions are released. After a 60 minute Yin practice you will be invited to participate in a short group hypnotherapy session to help support your desire to change. Hypnotherapy is a form of guided relaxation that uses positive suggestions to bring about change in our thoughts and feelings. 

When we make space in the body we in turn make space in our lives for new and amazing things! 

Led by Tracie Zamiska, ERYT500, YACEP, Yoga Medicine Teacher, Reiki Master & Kelly Brown, J.D., C.Ht., N.H.P.
