This class is a receptive practice of meditation, restorative yoga, pranayama and contemplative journaling to reset our nervous system. By Tending and Befriending ourselves with quiet purpose, we begin to get familiar with how to best care for ourselves, even with just one breath.
This class is open to anybody. You will need 2-3 blankets, and 2-3 bolsters (or rolled towels/blankets).
