RESTORATIVE YOGA FOR YOUR HEALTH

Wednesday, September 28, 2022 5:30-7:00 pm

Lead by Margaret Jessop and Marian Krizman


In this workshop, you will learn the basic science of rest, experience gentle somatic movement and restorative yoga, and learn techniques to do home or to teach others.  We will work in pairs to practice the set up.  


In a culture that places value on “doing”, a state of chronic stress leads to dis-ease.  Restorative yoga digests the stress hormones, leaving you more focused throughout the day and helps obtain overall health goals. The nervous system will be calmed, and tension built up in the connective tissue will be released.  With consistent practice, stress may be reduced, and a state of joy may be experienced in “being”.


Location: Sacred Waters Spiritual Center, 16990 Douglas Road, Mishawaka, IN 46545.

The Yoga studio sits in a lovely natural setting with a pond, waterfall, trees, creek and wildlife.  There is a noticeable mailbox at the top of the driveway on the south side of the street.  Head down a short road to the home of Sacred Waters.
