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 in an intelligent, therapeutic flow. This program will stretch, strengthen, lengthen and tone every space in the physical body. Class will conclude with an extended savasana and guided meditation. Afterwards a community style acupuncture treatment on your mat is included for each of the participants. Simple treatment options may include a choice of a “Four Gates Treatment” (helps with calming and quieting the mind, strengthening and nourishing all the muscles and tendons), a “Spring/Autumn Awakening Treatment” (focusing on clearing sinuses and encouraging free flowing respiration) or a “Back In Action Treatment” (targeting the spinal column and muscles of the back). We look forward to guiding you through the vast inner landscape of your being during this relaxing yet invigorating experience. Class size is usually limited to 12-15 participants (depending on room size).
