Gentle/Restorative Yoga


This class is taught by:

Sara Wank

Sara’s love for dance, movement, anatomy, and kinesiology is what brought her to her first Yoga class in 2005. She has found an art form in the many styles of Yoga throughout her years of practice, especially in Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Anusara, Jivamukti, and Satyananda.
 
She received her 200-hour Teacher Training in 2012 through Marni Task’s Jivasara training and holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Lake Erie College where her studies were focused in Anatomy, Kinesiology, Pilates, Wellness, and Sports Nutrition.
Our 45-minute Gentle Yoga practice invites you to slow down and drop into your body, offering you the opportunity to take time to feel the sensations that arise within the body in each asana. We'll focus on simple postures in order to bring harmony to both sides of the mind and physical body. The 30-minute Restorative Yoga cool down will include the use of props to support your body comfortably to induce relaxation. This portion will help you to shift out of the fight/flight mode (sympathetic nervous system), where most of us spend our waking hours, and into a relaxation state (parasympathetic nervous system). Restorative yoga assists in relieving the harmful effects of stress and promoting greater health. Putting the two together leaves you feeling lengthened, strengthened, and rejuvenated. This hybrid yoga class is a powerful balance between movement and stillness, inside and out.

Suitable for all levels. Beginners welcome! / Balancing classes: Vinyasa – All Levels, Power Vinyasa, Hour of Power, Deep Stretch Vinyasa
