Contract, Relax

Use the play of opposites to unwind from your work week.

We'll practice long holds in a variety of poses, both active and passive, along with slow flow to induce deep relaxation. Expect a structural, meditative focus to mindful stretching and strengthening with the understanding that sometimes we need to move to find greater peace in stillness and contract in order to find deeper release.

All levels welcome.

Breath as Meditation Series

  • The Glowing Body Yoga Studio (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
By looking at how we breathe, we begin to understand something about who we are.
— Richard Rosen

Tuesdays, September 22nd - October 13th, 6:00-7:30pm

We breathe all day everyday (hopefully). For many of us, however, this involuntary process has become dysfunctional. By paying attention to the way we breathe and learning the anatomy of breathing, we can become more efficient respirators. The breath is closely tied to the nervous system; by shaping the breath we can influence our mental state, energy, and stress levels. Sustained focus on the breath becomes a practice of meditation and can anchor our mind in the present moment.

Through guided, reclined breathing exercises and the use of props, we will seek to observe and acquaint ourselves with our everyday body and breath. Class will also include time for lecture and discussion, as participants are strongly encouraged to share their experience.

We will also spend a fair amount of time practicing relaxation techniques to help quiet the mind in order to devote more focus to watching the breath. As such, this series is appropriate for yogis and non-yogis alike, as well as individuals dealing with chronic stress.

Specific pranayama practices will not be taught in this series, although the exercises presented can serve as a solid first step toward regular pranayama practice.

This 4-week series is progressive in nature so drop-ins will not be accepted after the first week.
