Class Descriptions & Locations
Slow Flow Yoga
179 Gilbert Farm Road, Town Hill
Town Hill Studio
The Neighborhood House
In these weekly classes you'll practice connecting movement with your breath, bringing awareness to sensations in the physical and energetic body, watching the thoughts that arise as you move or pause in stillness. You'll learn various alignment cues during classes, not intended as a rigid means to a "perfect" pose but as a way to help bring you into your body, drawing your attention to what's going on in your pose.
You'll also learn various breathing techniques. Your breath is the center of your practice. In learning to expand and manage your breath, you will develop a sense of calm awareness which you then begin to see reflected in your day to day life.
Classes are designed for beginner/intermediate yogis. If you're looking for something stronger, I'm happy to recommend local teachers!
Yin & Restorative Yoga "Sink Into Stillness"
Town Hill Studio, Bar Harbor
One Thursday each month 6-7:30pm
This is a monthly invitation for you to slow down and enjoy one of the best acts of self-care you can practice, stillness. Adding a Yin practice to your regular routine can be wonderfully valuable.
In this monthly class you'll bring your body into gentle, supported poses to rest in stillness for longer stretches of time. Physically, this practice allows deeper stretching for your connective tissues and joints, areas that don't get as much attention in more active classes. Additionally, stillness encourages you to develop self-awareness and compassion as you become familiar with your thoughts and reconnect with your being.
Classes are a blend of Yin, Restorative, Pranayama (breathing practice), Meditation and occasionally Yoga Nidra (a longer guided meditation) leaving you feeling refreshed and restored.
