In the darkness of winter, seeds take root. Let's nurture the seeds of rest, self-care, and ease through a gentle restorative yoga practice. In a dark, candle-lit room (at the studio or in your home) we will join together to embrace the ease and comfort inherent to your own body. Slowing down together through supported poses, easy breath work, and guided meditation can relieve the symptoms of stress and constriction. All levels of yoga experience welcome.

This workshop will be taught in a hybrid format—students may choose to join in person or online. Students practicing in their own homes will receive a props list and a Spotify playlist.

Partial scholarships are available. Apply now.
