Wintertime is a great antidote to the hustle and bustle of Summer and activities of Fall - a time to slow down, rest, reflect, get cozy and hibernate. To redirect our energies inward and carve out the time to unwind and reset. This workshop will include hands-on healing of Thai massage, Shiatsu, Craniosacral Therapy, and Acupuncture during prolonged, supported Restorative yoga poses, with an emphasis on unwinding and softening. Let’s share space together and tend to ourselves, leaving relaxed and nourished. Comfortable clothing is suggested.

What to Bring
Comfortable clothing is suggested. Blocks, bolsters, and blankets will be provided. Limited mats available to use. Bring your own mat, props, blanket, and eye pillow if preferred. Please arrive with a face mask on - we will determine if masks will remain on at the beginning of the event (see below).
Wear a mask when you arrive to the studio. We will conduct an anonymous poll at the start of class to see if anybody needs everyone to stay masked to be safe. If that need isn't present then individuals can choose to practice with or without masks. This is the best way for us to care for our most vulnerable.
