“Our breath is constantly rising and falling, ebbing and flowing, entering and leaving our bodies. Full body breathing is an extraordinary symphony of both powerful and subtle movements that massage our internal organs, oscillate our joints, and alternately tone and release all the muscles in the body. It is a full participation in life.” – Donna Farhi

iRest Yoga Nidra

iRest (integrative restoration) Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) is a simple form of mindfulness meditation. iRest provides a way to feel at ease when life gets challenging. iRest helps you tap into a place that is calm—even when your life is not. Some people use iRest to relax when life gets busy. Others use it to help heal from serious trauma, stress, insomnia, depression, PTSD, chronic pain, and chemical dependency. A significant body of research shows that iRest meditation helps increase happiness; decrease stress, anxiety, and depression; improve sleep; increase energy; and strengthen resilience to deal with day-to-day life. All are welcome. By-donation (any amount!) to boost the UVY karma fund.

Yin Yoga

We'll use our mid summer yin class for a cool dip into a settling practice for back body and the long lines of the legs. Working with both the heat that is present (remember, fleetingly so!) while also focusing on poses associated with the water element and its cool and still nature, this practice will refresh.

Diving Deep: A Series for Continuing Students and Teachers

Join Leslie in the Fall for a 6-week series that explores and refines alignment in some key postures, including Sirsasana and Sarvangasana, and also "maps" the fascial sheaths of the body as a way to understand postural practice, physically and energetically. Designed for intermediate to advanced students, as well as yoga instructors, each session will also devote 30 minutes to a focused exploration of adjunct practices like pranayama, meditation, and subtle body movement modalities.

ACCOMMODATIONS:

The building itself was renovated to be energy efficient, and the room is moderately heated in cooler seasons to promote a good, healthy sweat, but not heated to an excessive or wasteful degree. There are cubbies in our large office to store your personal belongings, a spacious changing room, a comfy sofa and a water cooler (please bring a water bottle to fill, to cut down on paper cup usage). Two nice, clean bathrooms are located just down the hall. There are also cubbies in the studio itself for valuables, which students are welcome to use. We have a full lending library of yoga books, and encourage students to borrow freely. Gift certificates are available for purchase in any amount.

GUIDELINES FOR PRACTICE

Please do not wear perfume or any strong scent

People with allergies can be very sensitive to scent. Also, lots of people sweating in a closed space is less stinky than lots of people all wearing different brands of perfume or deodorant.

Wear comfortable clothing

Not so tight it binds, not so loose it gets in your way. And please do not wear clothes that “gap” and are inappropriately revealing.

Practice on an empty stomach

If possible, don’t eat at least three hours before practice. If you know that this isn’t possible for you, eat easily digested food one hour before class.

No food or outside beverages inside the studio

If necessary, bottled water is okay, but remember we are trying to generate internal heat; constant sipping cools the body. After practice, drink plenty of pure water.

Bring your own mat

Shared mats are not hygienic; you may borrow one from us if one is available, until you are able to purchase your own, but please clean it afterward with the mat wipes provided. Please understand mats may be borrowed on a first come basis….we have only a few to borrow, and do occasionally run out of them.

Keep your eyes on your own practice

The practice is richer when it happens from the inside out. It’s not about comparing yourself with the person next to you. Be present with your own experience.

Be kind and loving to yourself

Rest when you need to. Honor where you are in your practice. Use the energy of those around to inspire, not diminish, you. Remember: you are perfect just as you are now, and yoga is meant to enhance that understanding and let that perfection shine. Have fun!
