A gentle therapeutic yoga class will introduce the importance of breath and focused attention to a relaxed seated and lying practice that is directed toward supporting a meditative and calm state of being.  Focused attention will be directed towards using the ujjayi breath to maintain concentration, optimize oxygenation and encourage the parasympathetic nervous system to initiate the Relaxation Response. Core strength, mobility and flexibility of the extremities and the importance of learning how to safely move from standing to transitioning to the floor in sitting, supine and prone will be addressed.  Brief introduction to the benefits of using slow deep exhalation during the practice will be discussed along with awareness of how Dr. Stephen Porges Polyvagal Theory and Heart Rate Variability represent much of the science that supports the benefits of this type of practice.  This practice is available to all level practitioners.  Aromatherapy (optional) will be offered during the final rest (Savasana).
