Healing Arts Yoga (Adults)

Dates
Display dates: 
December 2016 - May 2017

Join yoga instructor, Angie Forest, on Saturdays for an 1-hour yoga session in our our beautiful gallery. All skill levels are welcome and mats can be provided if you don't own one.

Registration begins at 10:15am.

The word Yoga comes from the ancient language, Sanskrit. It literally translates to the word yoke. The practice of yoga is intended to yoke or join the mind, body, and spirit. There are many branches of yoga that move toward achieving this goal. In this class we engage in a body-centered yoga practice where we move our bodies into poses (asanas) and become observers to our experience. By offering up the mind and body to the experience we allow ourselves to touch upon the truth within. We learn to be fully in the moment by focusing on our breath. The results of this practice tend to be strength, flexibility, wisdom, and ease.

We are fortunate to be able to be a part of this ancient lineage in the contemporary setting of the Turchin Center for Visual Arts. At play is the integration of the old and the new as well as the inspiration of the ever-changing exhibitions. These concepts illustrate the very nature of Yoga.

About the Instructor

Angie Forest gently guides students through asana practice using heart-centered and alignment based Slow Flow.  She incorporates longer holds in some postures serving to facilitate increased flexibility and strength.  Attention is also given to the subtle energetic body using the Breath, Mind, Body Connection which allows students to cultivate an inner body awareness that inspires being present in the moment.  Angie’s teaching style is intuitive and aims to nourish the hidden strengths of her students while encouraging them to expand beyond perceived limitations.  Angie began her own yogic journey in 1997, and after moving to North Carolina from the Pacific Northwest in 2014, she completed her 200-hour teacher training program.

 Join us Saturday morning as move toward the capacity for greater resiliency through simply connection.
