Relaxation Yoga is the Practice of "Feeling Good"!! Classes are Inclusive & Suitable for both Beginners & those with prior yoga experience. Relaxation Yoga Incorporates Mindfulness, Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, Pilates & Somatic Exercise.      

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of Yoga where poses are held for longer periods of time - three to five minutes per pose is typical- and moderate stress is applied to the CONNECTIVE tissue (tendons, fascia, and ligaments) primarily of the hips, pelvis, & lower spine. Yin Yoga aims to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility and flow of QI- the subtle energy Chinese medicine says runs through the meridian pathways of the body. The theory is that improved QI flow improves organ health, immunity, and emotional well-being... Its a great opportunity to practice mindfulness skills learned during Relaxation Yoga

Somatic Movement practiced in RYSCP  is a Method of Neuromuscular Retraining developed by Thomas Hanna that helps retrain and reorganize the brain, nervous system and body. The slow gentle exercises release subconsciously held muscle tension and retrain habitual posture and movement patterns. 

Our bodies are designed to find homeostasis but then accidents, surgeries, pressures of life, fear anxiety and more, throw our systems -how we function neuromuscularaly and hormonally--out of whack.  We ultimately are looking for homeostasis, some place in which our systems function a state of calm/neutral, and to be able to return to that state quickly.  With somatic awareness we  can find that neutral state by paying attention to how we breathe, by sensing ourselves from an internal perspective and by doing gentle movements called pandiculations that reset muscle length to full length without stretching or strengthening.
