Slow Evening Flow

Session starts Monday, September 16 through Monday, December 2, 2019.  No class November 4. 

Walk-ins are welcome and pre-registration is not required.

This is a meditative flow to include breath, stretch and balance which helps unwind the tensions of the day, getting us ready for a good night's sleep. Class will accommodate all levels with modifications to meet student’s needs in this 75 minute class. Please bring a yoga blanket to this class along with your mat. Use this link if you need to purchase a blanket.

Class meets on Monday evenings from 7:00-8:15 pm at Mt. Lebanon Christian Church, 367 Cedar Blvd, Mt. Lebanon, PA   15228.  The church is located on the corner of Hollycrest Drive and Cedar Blvd.  Please note that Hollycrest is a one way street.  

We will be meeting in a new room at the church. It is directly upstairs from our old space.  If you're coming to class for the first time our entrance is on the level above the Hillside Community School banner and can be accessed from the Hollycrest side of the building.

Street parking is permissible and is available on Hollycrest or Cedar Blvd. There is also a small parking lot off of Hollycrest, behind the church if you don’t want to park on the street.

 

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is a systematic process of deep relaxation that can help remove stressors and internal tension. This class is open to all students. I teach this class on specific Saturdays in the Fall, Winter & Spring.  I offer two classes. The first class is from 1:30-2:30 pm. The second class is from 3:30-4:30 pm.  All classes are taught in my home studio in Mt. Lebanon. Class may be purchased on-line, however, please email me first to reserve and confirm your spot. Also please let me know if you have flexibility in terms of the time slot.

Yoga Nidra classes will return in the fall of 2019. Stay tuned for the date.

Restorative

Restorative yoga is a practice that reduces stress and improves health. All postures are done in a passive manner with the support of props such as blankets and bolsters. You will have the opportunity to linger quietly in these soothing and well supported postures. The power of restorative yoga lies in its ability to nurture ones own healing processes. This class may be purchased as a private session. Special rates for small groups of three. Please inquire.

Somatics

Somatic movement is one which is performed consciously with the intention of focusing on the internal experience of the movement rather than the external appearance or result of the movement. The word somatic means “of or relating to the living body,” and it has long been used in medical terminology. The term somatic education was coined by Thomas Hanna. Hanna used the term somatic education to describe methods of sensory-motor education that use somatic movement to improve motor control and change learned muscular patterns. Many people find somatic movement education methods to be highly effective in relieving chronic pain, improving bodily function, and recovering from common musculoskeletal conditions. My yoga therapy training included Hanna Somatics training. I personally have found this to be a very powerful movement modality. It is so subtle but by doing it on a regular basis I’ve noticed common little aches and pains that have just disappeared over time. Somatic training is available one on one or in group classes that are taught in 6 week sessions in the winter. Pre-registration is required.
