November 10: 12:15pm-3:15pm
Led by Rina Jakubowicz, internationally renowned yoga expert, speaker, and author of "The Yoga Mind" - a comprehensive and fresh resource for bringing the philosophies of Yoga off the mat and into your life.
We love to move our bodies, stretch out and work out in order to build strong and flexible yoga bodies. But without awareness of your other uniquely human equipment (your mind and your intellect), you will be vulnerable to the ups and downs of life, blindly following your impulses, desires and sensual attachments. According to the ancient teachings of yoga, we practice yoga for self-development or self-realization. Regardless of our intention, we can achieve this only by discovering and working on the secret key to it all: Building our intellects as known as The Yoga Mind.
Presented in a clear, easy-to-understand format, this workshop will cover:
★ Core Principles of Yoga Philosophy essential to your life
★ Guided Meditations, Interactive Discussions, Games, and Activities to help you master develop your Yoga Mind.
★ Physical Poses to help you apply the principles into your practice and on your mat.
You’ll walk away understanding how to make hard decisions, stop procrastinating, and take action. Obtain a happier and healthier life by finding the key; a strong Yoga Mind. It’s time to take control of your life!

Restorative yoga is about moving into a state of being, away from the normal activity of the body and the mind. By channeling the energies of the body, restorative yoga creates a deep sense of relaxation and rejuvenation. All categories of asanas are practiced – backbends, forward bends, side bends, twists and inversions — in a completely receptive manner through the support of bolsters, blankets, straps, blocks and eye pillows. Each pose is held from 5-20 minutes giving the body ample time to unwind and move into the parasympathetic nervous system leading to an experience of healing rest.
In addition to practicing a full sequence of restorative poses, we will look at some key restorative asanas and techniques to support the process for maximize relaxation.
