Restorative Yoga & Thai Massage

Date: Friday Nov 24, 2017
Time: 7:45 pm – 9:45 pm
Investment: $50+hst, $5 off for auto renew members
Limited Space, Pre-registration Required @ the studio or ONLINE

At this 2 hour workshop, you will practice earthy restorative poses and receive Thai Massage from Nicole Lau and Becky Yin, both are Registered Yoga Instructors and Certified Thai Massage Practitioners.  You’ll leave feeling refreshed and recharged.

In Restorative Yoga, the body is fully supported with props to facilitate deeper opening. The slower pace and deep breathing that you get in the restorative class triggers the parasympathetic nervous system.  The subdued quality of restorative yoga often helps you draw attention inward and away from external events and situations of the world, helps you feel safe and nurtured.

The goal of Thai Massage is to help physically align the energies within the body.  It incorporates basic movement, stretching and compression techniques.
No experience required to take this workshop, just be dressed in comfortable clothing that you can move in. Bring a yoga mat if you have one.
