RELAX with Kari Jacobsen and Michelle Cordero

Tension is who you think you should be.  Relaxation is who you are.
-Chinese Proverb

Are you feeling overworked, drained or sensitive to the world? Are you curious about developing your awareness of the subtle body and connecting to your inner intelligence? Do you need some love and kindness via a healing and skillful touch?

Join Kari and Michelle for a deeply relaxing and restorative afternoon.  Class features a simple Yin and Restorative yoga practice, during which Kari and Michelle will offer nurturing hands-on work inspired by trainings in Cranio Sacral Therapy.  Feel first-hand the power of more quiet practices of yoga.  Kari will guide you through a series of long stays in yin and restorative poses.  As you learn to relax the body into the moment, through support from props and mindful awareness to sensation, the mind becomes more attentive to the body.  Beneath the typical thought patterns and through the body’s language of sensation lives our inner wisdom… a place that knows what’s right for you and how to live healthily.  In this practice Kari and Michelle will spend quality time working with each student in gentle touch that encourages the body into progressive relaxation.

Class limited to a small group to maximize hands-on attention to each student. All levels welcome, no matter your flexibility, fitness level or experience.

$50 Early Bird until 10/5; $60 Thereafter. Registration at Innerstellar Yoga
