Yoga for the blues

Saturday November 17, 1:00-3:30 pm

Whether your depression is anxiety-based or more melancholy, yoga can bring relief. Asana, pranayama and meditation can be tuned to meet any variation of depression. Simply standing up on your feet in Mountain Pose can help regain positivity and confidence. A restorative practice can counter agitation and the fight-flight-freeze response. Depression affects your whole being – mind, body and soul, so this workshop will use the rich and varied tools of yoga to address your whole self. These tools include postures, breath work, meditation, visualization and affirmations. All of these are techniques you can take with you to help any time you encounter the blues .

Interactive exercises include:

  • Dismantling the “beauty myth”
  • Changing the conversation from criticism to kindness
  • Embodied yoga experience
  • Commiting to being kind to ourselves, and therefore each other
  • Seeing and experiencing ourselves as worthy from the inside out
  • Recognizing our contributions through conscious activism

Minta Allred’s teachings include a vast anatomical understanding of the body, as well as inspirational readings or yogic lifestyle concepts that bridge the practice on the mat with everyday life.

Aromatherapy and yoga nidra

Sunday, December 9 1:00-3:30pm

This workshop includes self Trigger Point release techniques, aromatherapy for emotional support, as well as the ultimate guided yoga relaxation technique, Yoga Nidra.

Yoga Nidra practice induces complete relaxation while maintaining consciousness. You will travel to the space between wakefulness and sleep, thereby restoring wellness on all levels of being.

Trigger Point release is an empowering and effective tool that decreases tension and increases circulation.

Wear comfortable clothes (think pajamas) and leave the belts and bras behind. No previous experience necessary.
