This class is designed to introduce Mindful Restorative Yoga as a practice to boost your immune system and increase mindful stress reduction and relaxation.
Restorative Yoga will be limited in size as the postures are held in supportive positions with blankets and other immune boosting and stress reducing elements requiring more attention and adjustment.
We have special eye pillows to help the mind relax and come back to the present moment while the body is in a supported posture (asana).
The class will include guided meditation for stress reduction.
Please bring a yoga mat (extras available) and a large towel.
Erika has been practicing yoga for 25 years. She is committed to mindfulness meditation and has experienced many aspects of yoga, including Restorative Yoga, in a committed community of practitioners and mentors. Erika is also an artist and recalls that creating art is as necessary for her as breathing. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Virginia Commonwealth University with a BFA, she used her strong imagination and creative thinking as a graphic designer for over 25 years. When she is not painting you can find her sipping tea in the sunlight, hiking with her dog, kayaking in the Potomac river, reading a good book by the fire or laughing with her children.
