Restorative Yoga +Acupuncture

Thursday, October 26th     6:00 – 7:30 pm

Marilyn leads a restorative class that ends with a fully supported, extended savasana.  In this fully relaxed state, your body’s ability to repair is at its peak, making savasana a great time to receive acupuncture. Aimee will come around to place a few needles to address your specific health issues while you blissfully rest on your yoga mat.

Feel the combined healing power of these two modalities together.

No experience necessary, perfect for beginners or seasoned yogis. Wear comfortable clothing.  Yoga mats are provided but feel free to bring your own. $30.00. Space is limited.  Register online here.
