9 am-5:15 pm Overview
8:45 am
Arrive (on an empty stomach, please and cell phones turned off)

9 - 10 am YOGA I Allie Bourgeois, Instructor
Yin yoga {letting go} In the first hour of our day, we will explore the deep release of yin. A Yin Practice benefits the physical body by freeing up the tight connective tissue capsules that form around the muscles and joints. As the body ages, this tightening increases creating limited mobility. The moisture that keeps the joints lubricated begins to dry up and the body takes on a brittle quality often associated with old age. This physical aging is not just due to natural aging but lack of addressing the tissues that are responsible for maintain the agility of the joints. When people say “yoga keeps you young,” they are referring to the suppleness of the joints and whole body due to the moisture stimulating stretches of a practice. Yin Yoga aims to work on this directly.

Energizing, chakra-opening yoga: There are seven chakras, or energy centers, in the body that become blocked by long held tension and low self-esteem. But practicing poses that correspond to each chakra can release these blocks and clear the path to higher consciousness.
