With Sherry Younker, RMT RYT
Sunday January 12th 6:00-8:00PM
Soften into stillness in this 2-hour Candlelit Restorative. We will explore long holds in well propped poses to release tension from body & mind. Restorative yoga trains the body to rest deeply so that we are better able to access the mental quietude needed to sleep well, restore the immune system and let go of habitual tension patterns.
This 2 hour practice will allow you the time to rest deeply and prepare for the week ahead. A great practice to help unwind!
Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to gather your props and allow time to settle in before the practice.
*Space is limited to 10 participants*

Yoga Nidra is deep rest for the body, mind and spirit. It is a restorative style of yoga that takes the student beyond relaxation accessing all levels of being. Sandy has been guiding students to calmness and well-being for ten years helping them access intuition, deep peace and joy. This practice is for everyone, regardless of yoga experience. Yoga Nidra has been described as a form of guided meditation. Similar to meditation, the list of benefits is long, some of which include improved sleep patterns, lowered blood pressure, increased clarity of mind, creativity, available energy and overall well-being. Yoga Nidra is practiced in Savasana or sitting- there is nothing to do but surrender and listen. Sandy uses gentle movement and restorative yoga to prepare the body and mind for surrender. Pre-registration required. Contact Sandy for more details.

The crystal singing bowl sound meditation is a truly restorative experience for mind and body.
The Alchemy Crystal Singing bowls are made with 99.992% high quality, pure quartz crystal which makes their sound incredibly resonant. Not only can you hear the pure tones they produce, but you can also feel them within your body.
This positively affects all of your energy centres and works on balancing the chakras and naturally allows the body to heal, become balanced and enhances meditation.
The different notes, elements of the alchemy crystal singing bowls have powerful healing tones that can help you tune into your multi-dimensional self, rebalance your chakras and relax your mind.
