Subtle Yoga & Relaxation- a fusion of gentle movement, pranayama (breath work), mudra (hand gestures), and mantra (a condensed vibration of realization in the form of a sound or saying) to prepare the body for deep relaxation. You will be guided through intentional movements that help loosen up the body and any places of tension, tightness, & stagnancy (physical, mental, & emotional) creating spacing for the expansion of prana (life force energy) through breath work. There will be a light asana (physical postures) practice to clear the subtle body, composed of nadis (channels) & chakras (energetic centers/wheels) according to Yogic philosophy. The use of mudra & mantra will be weaved in towards the end to prepare the mind & intellect for an extended guided relaxation in savasana. All levels are welcome. It is best to practice on an empty stomach- if you must eat before, have a light snack 30min-1hr before or give 2 hours after a full meal. Feel free to bring a journal in case there is anything you feel the need to write or reflect upon.
