FEBRUARY 2017 HAPPENINGS


Yoga is about the ultimate community--a gathering of like-minded souls, truth-seekers, coming together in the name of love. It's about oneness, seeing what is good and beautiful in others, and working together as part of a functioning whole. Yoga is the great unifier--we're all working it out on our mats, in our stretchy pants--resting, sweating, breathing, meditating, singing--and by the end of it, no one is having a good hair day! There is little that makes me happier than seeing the bonds that form, the friendships, the care-taking and the personal growth that happens in our sangha. This month, come be part of the goodness that is our beautiful community. I look forward to seeing you on the mat! Love, Nicole

YIN: A DEEPER EXPERIENCE OF YOGA 
WITH RONEN DIVON
SATURDAY FEBRUARY 4  1:30-3:30PM

Ronen Divon returns to ROY to explore the practice of Yin Yoga. Using traditional asanas that require less external effort, Yin Yoga has a deep effect by stretching connective tissues and opening pathways to allow the free flow of energy. We will use props including sand bags, belts, bolsters and eye-pillows, and asanas will be held for 3 to 6 minutes, using very little muscular effort. No previous knowledge of Yin yoga is required. All levels welcome. If you have practiced Yin Yoga with Ronen before, this is an opportunity to repeat the great experience! $35
