Yoga & Acupuncture
Want to see how they mix?
Do you love yoga or acupuncture and want to see how they mix? Have you been doing one and wondering what the other has to offer? The word yoga means union. It’s the joining together of breath, body and mind - mind, body and spirit. This unique class will begin with centering followed by the exploration of the breath through multiple asanas (yoga poses) in an intelligent, gentle therapeutic flow.
This program will stretch and soothe every space in the physical body. Class will conclude with an extended savasana (resting pose) and guided meditation. Afterwards a community style acupuncture treatment on your mat is included for each of the participants.
Simple treatment options will include a choice of:
• Four Gates Treatment - Helps with calming and quieting the mind, strengthening and nourishing all the muscles and tendons.
• Head Over Heels - Can treat headache or plantar fasciitis.
• Back In Action Treatment - Targeting the spinal column and muscles of the back and neck.
We look forward to guiding you through the vast inner landscape of your being during this relaxing yet refreshing experience.
• $45 - Registration is required
• Class is limited to 14 participants.
• Bring or borrow a mat
• Dress in loose & comfortable clothing
• No refunds on workshops
