Yoga and Sleep
with Kathy Duke
The value of good sleep is reflected in our health and energy levels. When we are well-rested, our immune systems function better, our minds are clearer, and we have plenty of energy throughout the day. Can yoga play a role in our sleep patterns? Research is indicating yes, both yoga and sleep are associated with an increase in parasympathic activity. Whether you have trouble falling asleep or awaken during the night, learn what postures, activities, and breathwork can create optimal sleeping conditions for you. All levels welcome. 2 CEUs.

Befriending Your Backbends
with Erin Scherger
Backbending postures are beneficial for maintaining a healthy spine; they ask us to move counter to our common postural positions while texting, driving, and working at our desks. They can also be physiologically and emotionally intense, causing us to work less compassionately with our bodies, leading to feelings of discomfort rather than ease. Making our way through foundational backbends and preparation poses, culminating with Urdhva Dhanurasana (Upward-Facing Bow Pose), we will investigate ways to allow these postures and their variations to feel more accessible, supportive, and spacious. For students who have completed at least one session of Yoga 2. 2 CEUs.
