Restorative with Yin, Sound Healing & Essential Oils Workshop at Greener Postures

This workshop will be held at Greener Postures in South Portland on Friday evening May 13th from 6 to 8 pm. The essential oil/aromatherapy is optional and you'll have a choice based on individual preference. Because the oils are delivered directly into your skin from an all natural patch, made in Vermont, the aroma is not intrusive to other participants.

I've designed this workshop to satisfy both yin and restorative needs in the body and mind.  Yin and restorative yoga are often confused since Yin is a deep stretch to release both toxins and tension in the connective tissues of the body, open the meridian paths and pressure points for free flow of energy, and increase/maintain range of motion and flexibility. Restorative, on the other hand, requires no stretching and helps return the body to it's natural state. Both help clear the mind and emotional body to allow for deep healing. In this workshop, we will experience both and move energy in all 8 meridian paths (heart, lung, kidney, bladder, liver, gall bladder, stomach and spleen) which includes the legs, hips, torso, arms, and even the head and face. Restorative postures will encourage the relaxation response.

All sound will be crystal bowl and solfeggio tones. No popular songs or lyrics will be incorporated into the sound in order to help you withdraw the senses and be unattached to any meaning that songs sometimes bring up. I own two bowls and 9 tuning forks which I will play live at times and other recorded sound healing will be our soundtrack for relaxation.

This special workshop combines sound, aromatherapy, and two yoga styles I feel honored to lead every week, but this time all in one place and time. If this interests you, I hope you give yourself this gift of rejuvenation!

Thanks to Greener Postures for hosting this and so many other diverse workshops. This one is at the South Portland studio. Check out the others when you visit the website. You can register at this link.

I look forward to seeing you! This would make a very nice Mother's Day gift! Dads will love it too!

Our beautiful space for May 13th. GP South Portland on Broadway.

Ps: Robin's Zodiac Yoga 3 Year Birthday Workshop is still open for registration. It's on April 30th

Come renew your relationship with your body and your zodiac sign. Feel who you are by nature, understand others more clearly, and move freely as you explore postures for every sign in a thoughtful sequence. The connection between astrology and the body is ancient, and this is my interpretation. Yoga is followed by Gallery readings for all signs including individual insights.

Restorative Yoga Teacher Training just announced today!  The world needs you as a Restorative Yoga Teacher. This is where the inner work, the cleansing, the self acceptance, the surrender happens.

I would love to introduce you to the philosophy, the anatomy, the layers, and the reasons for the stillness of Restorative Yoga.
