Limited Capacity full

Find ease and peace in this restful yoga class with poetic meditation guided by Stephanie Kirkos. This experience will take you on a journey through the four seasons, both in body and in mind. Stephanie will guide participants through a series of yin and restorative yoga postures to create a healing environment in the body that also mirrors the healing energy of the seasons. Once we create stillness and ease in each posture, Stephanie will share a selection of Robert Frost's poems with rich, seasonal imagery as a meditative guide to help keep you rooted in the present moment. Participants are asked to provide their own blanket and pillow. While mats are not necessary, participants are welcome to provide their own.
