Experience a soothing and healing evening of deep rest accompanied by sacred lullabies. During this nurturing class, Brye will guide you through a series of gentle and restorative yoga poses while Allison sings sweet Sanskrit chants. Could this be the best evening ever? Probably. Perfect for all levels, bodies, and abilities – and anyone who yearns for comfort and connection.
Restorative Yoga is a passive practice that gently relaxes deeper muscle and connective tissues than active yoga practices, releasing tensions you may not even be aware of, through supporting the body in shapes on the floor with props (blankets, bolsters, blocks), deep breathing, and surrender. It can also balance the energy of the body, calm the mind, and help reset the nervous system. Sanskrit is the ancient language of Yoga and mystics, a language that vibrates at a healing frequency. Specific chants resonate within the body in ways that can release blocks and awaken latent energy. Intentionally carving out time for yourself in this way can have profound and healing effects on physical, energetic, and emotional levels.
Allison has been teaching yoga and Indian things since 2005 when she completed her first 500 hours of teacher training. Music has been the most predominant thread in her life as a singer-songwriter, musical theatre actress, jazz standard crooner, and now, thanks to K. Sridhar, Indian music. Her new album, Bhaja Ma, is streaming on Spotify.
Brye, a 500-hour certified yoga teacher, has taught various styles and levels of yoga since 2008 – with a focus on beginners and the gentle side of things. She knows something magical happens when mindful movement is joined with the breath, and she strives to create a safe, nurturing, and fun space in which to do this.
