Yin + Reiki + Meditation
Instructor: Kristine Graham
Journey inward. During this 90 minute introspective practice, we will slowly peel back the layers of stress and resistance to find the quiet center innate in all of us. After guided breathwork and slow, grounding movement, we will marinate in the stillness of yin and restorative poses. As the body relaxes and mind quiets, we create space to tend to all facets of ourselves- physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. In this space, we gain clarity, discover meaning, experience healing, and cultivate an environment for self-exploration. The entire practice will be infused with healing reiki energy, as Kristine offers hands on assists to provide further renewal and relaxation. Each monthly installment of this workshop will incorporate exploration of yogic philosophy and associated practices that can be used both on and off the mat. In April, we will focus on meditation, diving deeper into the “how” and “why” as we move through the class, ending in a peaceful guided practice.
