Paying attention to your breath, to sensations in your body, and to feelings
and thoughts as they arise, creates opportunities to slow down and bring
greater awareness to what's happening in the moment. It is here that life is
most fully experienced and appreciated.
A "Yoga for Slow Living" practice
focuses on the benefits of
slowing down--on your yoga mat
and in your life. Sessions include
techniques such as gentle
movement, breathing exercises,
meditation and guided relaxation.
These tools can help to release
physical tension, manage
emotional and mental stress,
increase concentration, strength
and flexibility, and often create a
feeling of peace and well being
both on and off the yoga mat.
With regular practice of conscious
relaxation, you can train yourself
how to rest with ease, how to
quiet your busy mind, how to
remain calm during stressful
situations, and how to manage
chronic pain and anxiety.

For Slow Living (aka Gentle
Yoga) classes see the schedule.
Restorative Yoga is a therapeutic
form of conscious relaxation
which allows the body and mind
to come into balance.
During the practice, you can
experience the benefits of being
passively supported in yoga
postures lasting from 5 to 25
minutes. This slow release of
physical tension and mental
stress invites healing and
creates an overall sense of
peace and well being.
In addition to group and private
sessions, Rhoda now offers an
advanced training to yoga
teachers and practitioners
wishing to deepen their practice.
