Restorative Yoga is a practice about less being more. It is an essential component to a balanced practice of yoga. Restorative Yoga is designed to facilitate the connection to the parasympathetic nervous system, the rest and digest system. This connection helps release deeply held tension, stress and anxiety located in the physical, emotional and mental bodies. We use several props to do the work for us so we can simply relax, heal and grow stronger. You will leave Restorative Yoga feeling renewed and restored. This class is appropriate for students of all levels.
Saturdays 11:00am-12:15pm with Christina & Wednesdays 6:00-7:00pm with Kristen.

Christina has always been an athlete; from a young age she felt the inseparable connection between body and mind. In high school, she was on the gymnastic, track and swimming teams. In 2004, after decades in the corporate and academic world as a busy director and language teacher, yoga and its transformational force came to Christina’s life. She decided to let her passion for yoga and its innumerable health benefits become her “raison d’être”. Christina is a dedicated meditator, a 200 YTT mentor and teacher to future yoga instructors. “Yoga, to me, has the ability to bring the physical, mental and spiritual dimensions back into balance. To allow each one of us to flourish into the best version of ourselves. Yoga is an ancient and powerful gift to all of us and it is my privilege and honor to guide my fellow yogis on this beautiful journey.” Christina is also a certified Usui Reiki practitioner and crystal healer.
