Unwind from the week and relax into the weekend. Our evening begins with a slow paced Vinyasa practice including therapeutic stretching. From there we will explore poses from both the Yin and Restorative Yoga styles, allowing you to slow down, replenish, further unwind, and relax.
Yin Yoga is a deep, meditative and often profound practice. The Yin style involves holding and exploring poses for longer periods of time in order to let go of tensions stored in the body and to calm the nervous system. Infused in the longer, more passive holds is a meditative awareness of breath, mindfulness, and presence. Practicing this way helps to target deeper connective tissues especially around the hips, pelvis and lower spine.
From the Restorative Yoga style of practicing, we will incorporate passive yoga asanas fully supported by props to help facilitate a deeper, more restful and supported state.

Instructor — Savonn Wyland

Savonn’s approach to teaching is to provide skillful and detailed instruction, non-dogmatic and grounded inspiration, along with mindful intention and awareness. She weaves in many different styles and approaches to her creative sequencing and theme based classes.

She recognizes the importance of an integrated approach to health and wellbeing. She believes that yoga and other meditative and expressive arts are a great complement to athletic, professional and creative pursuits.

Her classes, workshops and retreats offer an opportunity to tap into the transformational energy present when a group comes together to practice without losing the power of personal inquiry and expression. Her one-on-one sessions help to better tailor a personal practice, to address individual concerns, modifications and questions, and to make sure the practice stays safe, nurturing and fun.
