Yin Yoga with Stephanie Needham, Friday's at 10:45 am, Mantra Studio in Thornbury
"You thought that union was a way you could decide to go. But the soul follows things rejected and almost forgotten. Your true guide drinks from an undammed stream." (Rumi)
A yin practice invites you to pause for some time at the edges of your true guide. Steeping with attention and intention into connective tissue/fascial vibrancy available to us, we follow the fluidity of this tissue guiding us to cultivate undammed streams. This practice threads together the science and nature of connective tissue as target tissue in a yin practice, Daoist's principals and mindfulness meditation.

Introducing Sundara Prana

With that in mind, we are pleased to announce a new offering at the studio – Sundara Prana.Sundara Prana translates literally to mean Beautiful Energy and is a new initiative from Laura Barnes.

On a physical, psychological and spiritual level, this lovely movement and the opportunity that it creates to actually connect with oneself is really the answer to all of our questions. Our practice gives us the keys to open the doors and find the information that lives in us all.”
“I look forward to the chance to help people help themselves.” Sundara Prana is an opportunity to work one on one with Laura and address your specific challenges with breath, meditation and postures in the privacy of a one on one setting. She will also refer to a network of alternative healing specialists as required to completely serve your needs.
Laura has worked with students on the following: - insomnia - incontinence - physical challenges – back, neck, hip and shoulder pain - weight loss - Detox -anxiety - “clean” eating - depression - smoking cessation - hyper activity - recovery from illness or surgery - soft addictions - coping with grief and loss - seated yoga for mobility and balance challenges
