This ancient science teaches that when we still the mind and live completely in the present moment, unlimited joy, creativity, and deep abiding peace are effortlessly available. Peaceful Postures yoga uses the tools of breath, body, and attention to help cultivate this state, as it simultaneously develops physical strength, flexibility, vitality and balance. Our practice focuses on synchronizing breath with movement, proper physical alignment to allow optimal opening of subtle energy channels, along with awareness of internal energy flow. It is both relaxing and invigorating!
Each class combines:
pranayama (breathing techniques), flowing movements, held postures, mudras (hand gestures that direct energy into subtle nerve pathways), visualization to guide flow of energy, guided deep relaxation.
"Peaceful Postures is a very unique and special space. Mary Platt is so knowledgeable about yoga, but also imparts great wisdom about the body and spirit as well. Her kind and warm demeanor makes class a deeply calming and powerful experience."
