Detox Yoga – Offered: Lowell ONLY

Come detox your mind and body and get yourself aligned or better performance.

Your body has a robust system (Circulatory, Digestive, and Lymph) to rid the body of toxins.  These systems work very well on their own. However, add stress, a nutrient poor diet, and little sleep to the mix and these systems become stressed and their performance is reduced.

This 1 hour heated detoxifying yoga class will systematically compresses and stretch every part of the body. By twisting, turning, pulling, and pushing on every part of the body, we will facilitate the removal of the waste products like lactic acid, carbon dioxide, and lymphatic fluid from extremities and deep tissues.

The yoga breathing techniques will play a vital role in promoting detoxification.  The focus on posture, releasing muscles, and clearing the mind will help you to feel your best.  This class will mix rigorous movement with calming breaths, deep bending and twisting, all in a dark warm room.  You will walk out of the class refreshed, renewed!

Nidra Yoga – Offered: Lowell ONLY

Nidra Yoga will combine restorative (easy) postures to open your spine and deepen your breath, then into deep guided relaxation. Nidra is a powerful technique derived from ancient tantra and originally developed by Swami Satyananda. Its ultimate goal is increasing self-awareness by bringing you into a conscious sleep. Also referred to as yogic sleep. While you are in this state, you are conscious but functioning at a deeper level. We will guide you through with spoken word then safely bring you back to a fully conscious state, setting a sankalpa or focused resolution. This technique is easily accessible and very practical. If you are having trouble with stress, insomnia, anxiety, headaches, or tension to name a few- practicing Yoga Nidra will help tremendously. It is said that 15 minutes of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to A FULL NIGHT OF SLEEP! That is because it brings you into wave 3 sleep consciousness. Please join us for this special class and bring a pillow, blanket, and anything to help you relax.
