Extra Gentle Yoga and Guided Meditation for Healthy Aging

PLEASE register early as class fills and closes. Two days prior is recommended. We have about 250 people attend.

This class uses extra gentle movements to calm the nervous system and relax the body. Following the physical practice, students move to a comfortable place to lay down to enjoy a guided meditation designed to strengthen your vitality and find better sleep. Sleep is an essential function that allows your body and mind to recharge, leaving you refreshed and alert when you wake up. Good sleep also helps the body remain healthy and stave off diseases. Most people think that relaxation is very simple; just recline and close your eyes. We are tired, you go to bed and think that is relaxation. But unless you have released your muscular, mental, and emotional tensions, we may not be relaxed. Discover how guided meditation promotes health and sleep by deeply resting the body and mind.
