Our peaceful restorative class will include mindful breath work, seated and reclined poses, and end with deep relaxation with Stacy Faherty, 200RYT. Props are used throughout class to support your body and bring you into a calm, relaxed state. Next, Aidan Macalister, a 200 RYT, tea enthusiast, and aspiring herbalist will present an informative session on the healing benefits of herbal teas! We will discuss how to incorporate tea into a daily mindfulness practice, the effect of herbs on the human body, as well as tasting several different herbal tisanes. We ask that you please bring your favorite teacup or mug as we will be drinking lots of tea! Light vegetarian and vegan fare will be provided to help cleanse your palette in between tastings. Consider bringing a notebook and pen if you would like to take notes for your own personal reference. To end this mindful day, Stephanie, yoga teacher and accomplished artist, will guide you through creating and personalizing your own mandala painting by choosing the color, shapes, symbols, or you may choose to simply follow along in this fun filled positive inducing project. "Mandala" means circle in Indian Sanskrit. It symbolizes qualities such as unity, wholeness, perfection and divinity. The center of the mandala represents our spirit or awareness. Its special message is said to speak, bringing clarity, serenity, and peace to a busy mind. Participating in art and/or yoga allows us to completely shift gears from our normal day to day stresses. My hope is that with light concentration you will find peace and beauty in your many abilities, most especially taking time out for yourself.
