Join Wendy Hummell, RYT 200 on Sunday August 2nd from 10:30 am - noon for a 90 minute class that integrates the body and the mind. This class will have limited spots in studio, but can also be practiced virtually via ZOOM. All participants must register and pay ($20) ahead of time as space is limited in studio and those attending virtually will receive an email link 15 minutes prior to class. Register through the link below, and be sure to sign up for the one you want- In Studio OR Virtual.
We will start with a 60 minute yin practice to balance the chakra system. There are 7 main chakras, or wheels of energy, in the body:
Root Chakra/Muladhara, Sacral Chakra/Svadisthana, Solar Plexus Chakra/Manipura, Heart Charkra/Manipura, Throat Chakra/Visuddha, Third Eye Chakra/Ajna, and Crown Chakra/Sahasrara.
Yin yoga helps to stimulate, strengthen, and revive connective tissue, fascia, ligaments, and joints by working with the meridian system of the body. The meridian system is used in Chinese Medicine practices such as acupuncture and acupressure.
The class will end with a 30 minute yoga nidra practice. Yoga nidra, or yogic sleep, is a guided meditation and conscious relaxation practice intended to induce physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. Yoga nidra is similar to traditional seated meditation in that it can help to ease insomnia, anxiety, and stress. But there are some distinct differences. Yoga nidra is typically practiced lying down. Yoga Nidra is always guided and takes you through a series of steps and directs attention to specific parts of the body, the breath, and imagery.
