Come to practice with patience and an open mind. Yoga nidra is a deep state of conscious relaxation, known as “yogic sleep.” In a comfortable laying position, supported by props, you will follow Titi's voice as she guides you through the practice, allowing you to come into a state of being neither awake nor asleep. By practicing pratyhara or removing connection to the outside world, we allow ourselves to fully calm our consciousness, mind, and body, switching our nervous system to a relaxed state, which allows for healing and reparations.
Begin to focus on your breath - body - mind connection. This 75 minute class combines a 60 minute hatha flow class fusing breath work, energizing mat work, gentle Sun Salutations, followed by a 15 minute sound healing meditation to stimulate the muscles, build strength, increase flexibility, while helping to manage stress. Sound therapy and yoga both promote healing at a cellular level. The combination of the two help you integrate the many physical and emotional benefits of the session and allow for faster transformation. As we stretch and move through the postures, we essentially open our energy, our emotions and our body. It’s when we are open that we can release and heal. It's the perfect way to start your day!
Yin is a passive, deep-stretching practice that allows more time for the body to settle into awareness and alignment. Yin is associated with the earth’s qualities like rootedness, patience, and stability. In this class, we will move through a series of Yin postures that will help us learn about our bodies and center us in the present. On the latter half of class, we will restore through even more passive and calming postures and end with a meditative Savasana. Each sequence or class will offer a different message within the philosophy of Yoga, and will guide you back to your life force energy or the breath.
This class is about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. During the long holds of restorative yoga your muscles are allowed to relax deeply with the use of props, like bolsters, blocks, and blankets to help support your body. This class is healing and soothing to the soul. You will leave this class feeling calm and relaxed.

Yin Yoga is a slower and more meditative practice intended to tune you into your body and your mind. While holding poses for several minutes, your connective tissues have the opportunity to stretch and you are able to go much deeper into a pose. This class is great for reducing stress and may be a better option for those with injuries.
