A Restorative/Yin Yoga Workshop

Jackie Long Vivian's heart hands

"Cultivating gratitude tills the soil of our soul sending roots deep down into the earth of our everyday existence."
-Sarah Breathnach

In this 3-hour restorative yoga workshop, Jackie Long will encourage us to explore a deep sense of gratitude for all the abundance in our lives. All too often we focus on what is lacking. Jackie will help us shift our focus away from what’s missing and towards what is already here.

Jackie will lead us in restorative poses and yin yoga poses, which deeply benefit the joints and calm the nervous system. Since the yoga practice will be very gentle, with a focus on stress relief and relaxation, this workshop will be a great opportunity to introduce a friend, loved one or co-worker to yoga. Jackie believes that yoga is for “any body” and she teaches in a very gentle, nurturing and accessible manner.

While this workshop is great for beginners, intermediate and advanced yoga practitioners are strongly encouraged to attend as well. The still, inward and meditative nature of restorative and yin yoga often challenges the active yoga practitioner to be present and look within.

"It's one thing to feel gratitude. But to consciously communicate that gratitude - to each other, to our bodies, to the earth, to the Divine - makes our gratitude come alive."
