Detox Flow and Restorative Immersion
Saturday Jan 11, 2014, 10am-1pm
@ Moksha Yoga Center, Chicago, IL (Riverwest)
Fee: $30

1.5 hours of flow, 1.5 hours of restorative
In the wake of your holiday indulgence, unroll your mat and let go of your turkey (or tofurkey) stuffing with a 1.5-hour dynamic yoga flow with Ingrid, followed with a 1.5 hour restorative and meditation practice. We will start with a powerful and fluid vinyasa flow to stimulate the circulatory and lymphatic systems and help clear out toxins. You will learn sequences to twist and liberate the core, freeing the body with spaciousness and ease. Yoga and breathing techniques will help you firm up, reset the metabolism, and cleanse the inner body. We will end with a restorative and meditation practice to activate your parasympathetic nervous system, to help you digest through the purified body and relax away holiday stress, preparing yourself for the new year. Winter won’t be over yet, so this practice will restore balance to your immune system and leave you feeling worked out, refreshed, and relaxed.


YinKi® Night
coming in late January 2014
@ Yogaview Lincoln Park
Fee: $25

Yin Yoga class (longer holds of poses to facilitate deep opening and greater flexibility) with Reiki Healing (healing energy that serves to promote stress reduction and relaxation). This special offering is meant to quiet the mind, relax the body and expand the heart.

What is Reiki? Reiki (pronounced ray-kee), the Japanese word for universal life force energy, is the practice of channeling this energy into the body to promote healing, stress reduction and relaxation. The word "Rei" means "high knowledge," and "Ki" means "life force energy". Reiki treats the whole person creating many beneficial effects that may include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. It is a natural and safe method for everyone.

  • - Develop and lead classes compassionately and competently to improve balance, flexibility, and strength and to relieve stress, anxiety and pain that is often associated with cancer.
