Their mission is to engage and educate the public, and to maintain the trail system and natural lands around lower Four Mile Run to improve Four Mile Run Park, and to foster respect and stewardship for this unique urban ecosystem and its natural, historic, and recreational resources. Their vision is a Four Mile Run Park that is fully utilized and appreciated by its neighbors and other stakeholders as an important part of community life, a resource for recreation, and a model for natural lands maintenance in an urban setting.

Experience deeper levels of peace and health than you ever imagined possible. Give yourself permission to rest and restore. We will start the first hour practicing Yin Yoga, explaining this yoga style then practice. Yin is a grounding practice that supports your physical and mental body. Special awareness is brought to the connective tissues and joints. Includes long holds; 3 to 5 minutes on the floor. The last hour we will lay back and listen to both the teacher (Paige Lichens) and Live Harp Music (Kara Welch). Be supported, held, and nourished as you discover profound peace and vibrant health.
Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra® has the power to transform you at core levels. This guided meditation guides you through each layer of being, called the Koshas, which include the physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual layers; making this healing practice inclusive of your whole being.

Who is this for?

Practice is for anyone with a desire for greater inner peace and connection to one’s self. No yoga experience is required. Modifications and alterations will be provided. The Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra practice has been used to successfully aid insomnia, anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, pain and adapting to travel & time zones, and other issues and changes.

Take a breath and enjoy an exploration of Slow, Deep, Stretchy, Delicious postures.
You Deserve It!

This is a routine to help you move into areas deeply and safely with a combination of deep stretching poses that everyone can benefit from.

Balance your usual regime and give yourself a nice treat for both your body and mind.

Experience the benefits of holding poses a little longer, giving these massive areas (hamstrings, groin, hips, shoulders, etc.) more time to release deeper. You will practice stretches aimed at increasing flexibility, easing into joints and muscles, stretching slowly and deeply. This workshop offers deep opening and stretching for the muscles combined with soothing poses.

Explore the practice of awareness for optimal health and well being. The pace of this class will allow you to work deeply and also sink into a beautiful pace of calm.

No need for previous yoga experience and no fear of having to get into those "yoga pretzel poses".

Anyone can do this and everyone can benefit from it.

Join us to release tension, increase flexibility, and restore health.

Cost: $30 prior to 9/7, $45 thereafter
