The passive poses with mental-emotional integration and sacred live music allows for deep relaxation. Jessica will get you relaxed and home in time Wednesday night to start cooking!

Woodstock Yoga Center Members no extra charge!The Apana Vayu prana is the main downward energy of the body. Most yoga classes are done to stimulate the upward flow of prana to lead one towards Enlightenment. Unless the downward flow is moving correctly, congestion, blockages, sluggishness, constipation, and dullness will result. After a feasting holiday, we work on asanas to stimulate this downward flow. This will be a STRONG yoga class. Besides stimulating the Apana Vayu, we will work to stimulate the Agni Gastric Fire. Some abdominal asanas are not appropriate during menstruation. Alternate postures will be offered. Open to all levels and students of all styles of yoga. No absolute beginners or major injuries for this class. We will be moving too fast for your safety. Join Barbara at the Woodstock Yoga Center, 6 Deming St, Woodstock. Info: woodstockyogacenter.com; 845-679-8700.
