9:00am - 11:00am Session 2
The Art of Deep Relaxation & Meditation (B2A)
Sherri Baptiste

General
Meditation & Contemplation (MC)

Meditation can increase physiological balance, clarity of mind, and awareness. Physicians, psychologists, and other professionals endorse meditation as a powerful tool for relieving stress, maintaining health, and promoting creativity and vitality. In this class, we learn sequencing to elicit the relaxation response, while building a base for deeper meditation. Together we warm up with gentle hip opening poses; learn seated and centering techniques; practice self-reflection, the art of relaxation, guided visualization, and silent meditation; and meditate with the use of sound. Please note: Bring a blanket, yoga strap, and two yoga blocks. CE credit available.



3:30pm - 5:30pm Session 4
Chakra Journey (B4A)

The chakra system has been recognized as part of sacred yoga practices for thousands of years. In this hatha yoga session, we explore gentle postures designed and sequenced to awaken and balance the chakras, with visualization, meditation, and color breathing techniques taught for awakening subtle awareness. We gain a greater sense of the basic anatomy of these energy systems, learn tools for centering within our chakras, and integrate our body-mind-spirit in a way that brings the timeless yoga traditions to life. Please note: Bring a blanket, yoga strap, and two yoga blocks. CE credit available.
