Spring Tune-Up: a Restorative Yoga Workshop with Sarah Scharf

Start your holidays with rejuvenation. In this workshop we will use props to support the body in passive and deeply relaxing asana. We start with gentle yoga to soften our bodies and prepare for stillness. Each pose will help to release tension and leave you with more space to be just as you are. Restorative yoga is a great compliment to a strong dynamic practise, or a way to begin if you aren’t familiar with yoga or meditation. In times of stress, fatigue or illness this practise can support you and help to rebuild your energy. The sequence of poses will help your body move into spring and get you ready to shift into celebrating the new season. Attention will be given to any tender or tight areas, as well as to increasing our capacity for prana. Open to all levels, including pregnant women and most injuries/health conditions.
