Restorative Yoga and Loving-Kindness Meditation/ A quiet afternoon of deep rest and relaxation
Come away for a sweet afternoon in a restful setting where you’ll slow down, dive deep into your warm-hearted, peaceful self and come away feeling blissfully rested and spiritually inspired.
All levels welcome. No experience needed.
Our time together will include:
-A guided Loving-Kindness meditation to find the quiet and still place that is the center of your being– a realm full of gentle knowing, deep peace, and true happiness, where your true self resides. Then we’ll extend loving friendliness to ourselves, others who are special to us, and outward until we include all living beings and the planet itself.
-Restorative Yoga, where you simply relax with pillows and bolsters allowing the body to feel supported and calm as we let go into our own basic goodness. Here, we quiet the fears, insecurities and habits that we all develop in our lives. Gradually, each supportive posture melds with the meditative phrases of Loving-Kindness, softening your mind, body and heart, and opening you to deep levels of pure love.
