Lora will be hosting the following upcoming events. Hope to see you there!
Relax and Renew
Saturday, December 1st from 10 to noon | Unravel Wellness Studio in Mt. Calvary
"The techniques of yoga are methods of purifying the nervous system so that it can reflect a greater degree of consciousness and our lives can become an increasingly positive force in the world." - Yoga Sutras
This Yoga workshop will consist of: restorative poses, gentle yoga, and meditation. Slower movements cultivate space for a deeper experience of the poses and the breath. Awareness of the physical sensations, the thoughts or emotions that arise, or sounds in the environment, can all take on a much more profound significance in the depth of the restorative practice. Simply put, you’re able to notice and feel more of the world through your yoga experience.
THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL - contact Lora at firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on a waiting list.
