Restorative Yoga + Reiki with Geanette Floyd
Friday, May 4th, 6:30 – 7:45pm
You’re invited to feel the amazing benefits of Restorative Yoga practice and Reiki healing touch. Restorative Yoga is a gentle style of yoga that encourages conscious relaxation. Restorative postures elicit the “relaxation response,” a feature of the parasympathetic nervous system, which balances the body and mind. In Restorative Yoga, we breathe with awareness and practice the art of letting go, of being rather than doing. This state of deep relaxation not only alleviates stress but also strengthens the immune system while generating serenity and peace of mind. This class will include the nurturing, relaxing and healing touch of Reiki. $20.00 drop-in; or use your class series. FREE for Monthly Members.
