Restorative yoga :: One Sunday a Month :: 9:00 - 10:30 AM :: $10

This workshop releases tension through gentle movement and focused breath. Intentional relaxation is the antidote to stress and the fight-or-flight hormones that can make us chronically ill. The scientifically-proven effects of relaxation include reduction in muscle tension, improved circulation, reduced stress, lower blood pressure, and reduced fluid retention. 

Whether you are a seasoned yogi or are recovering from an injury or have decided to attend to your self-care, this class will be highly restorative and supportive. Incorporated in this work are sophisticated and powerful concepts from various MindBody curative techniques offered within the yogic arts and neuroscience.

Upcoming restorative yoga workshops will be held on March 29 and May 3 and May 17.


Sign up for private 15-60 minute wellness sessions with Catherine J Howard. In these sessions, you are invited to discuss... yoga postures for chronic injuries... nutrition... guided meditation... stress and anxiety management... treatments for insomnia... or anything else that you may need support around. Email Catherine for more details and scheduling. 

More information and registration for all classes available on the Mercury Studio Event Calendar.
