and when an individual's spiritual energy is at its peak. Sunrise yoga

attitude to fully prepare for the challenges of the day ahead. This

Yin Yoga with Reiki + Meditation
This class will allow time to explore the body, mind, and spirit through yin yoga, meditation and Reiki.
In Yin Yoga we will remain in the poses longer than in a typical yoga class, but in a less strenuous position. By lingering in relative stillness in the poses, you nurture the deep tissues of our bodies including the fascia. By reaching the fascia you will bring oxygen & nutrients to the body, as well as release toxins that have been stored. In turn, this helps to support our immune system. You will stimulate the flow of energy (chi) through acupressure. You will actively stress and stimulate your bones, creating stronger bones.
Reiki is a Japanese holistic healing technique used to balance your energy and mind.
