restorative yoga & massage
with carrie dennison
Tension and stress — a reality to most of our lives. Stress stays with us, locked up in our emotional and physical bodies with one affecting the other all of the time. This practice offers an opportunity to positively impact both bodies! Carrie Dennison will guide participants through a series of long-held restorative postures supported with bolsters, blankets, and all things comfy. Sinking into breath and body, you’ll find peace and an overall sense of relaxation.
And there is more! To complement your yoga practice, everyone will also get a 20-minute chair massage offered by Massage Therapists Julie Manning and Melissa Hernandez. Massage has profound effects on stress by relaxing tight and locked muscles and allowing the body to move with less restriction.

Restorative Yoga & Sound Vibration Experience
with carrie dennison & sangeet angad
Description: rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit as you rest in Restorative Yoga postures supported by blankets, pillows and bolsters in relaxing poses. A combination of crystal and Tibetan singing bowls will be played by Sangeet during the practice. This sound experience works along the energy meridians to allow blockages to soften and release to create more flow.
During your 20 minute super supported savasana, Sangeet will play the gong. Vibrations created from the gong calm the mind to support a deeply relaxing, meditative state. They have been shown to increase endorphin levels to bring relief from physical pain, boost the immune system, reduce tension, and regulate stress-related hormones.
This unique combination of restorative yoga poses & sound vibration creates a safe supportive space for the body so that tension will be released & your relaxation response will activate.
No yoga experience is required and all levels are welcomed to attend. Your body cools down as you lay in these restful poses so it is encouraged to bring cozy socks and a long sleeve shirt.
