Instructor: Nicole Gauthier-Schatz

Time: Noon – 1:00 pm

When: Wednesdays (June 5 – August 14)

Where: Wellness Studio – Room G-278 (Ground Floor of Health Sciences South)

Theme Yoga is a topic-oriented practice. The class will have a weekly theme allowing students to learn about the different Yogic practices to attain greater health and wholeness. We cover many different therapeutic topics for sleep, back, neck, and delve deeper into less known practices.

Restorative Yoga: The effect of stress, including exhaustion, have reached epidemic proportions in our lives. Restorative Yoga reduces the effects of stress as we slow down and reconnect with our own internal rhythms. It allows us to receive the energetic benefits of the yoga postures without having to expend significant amounts of energy to practice. The true essence of getting to know one’s inner voice and being is through the experience of stillness. Restorative poses can play a role therapeutically, creating a sense of healing and deep relaxation. Restorative Yoga is useful when we are feeling emotionally and physically depleted as it renews our nervous system.
