Deep Rest Mini-Retreat

Wednesday, October 12th 2pm – 4pm REGISTER~ OR ~

Sunday, October 16th, 1-3pm REGISTER

Click HERE to if you would prefer to register for an Online Session

Take a break from it all with this 2-hour mini-retreat at Spiritus Yoga Studio in Hendersonville, NC. Together we will release cumulative stress from the body and the mind. Expect calming breath-work to bring the nervous system back into balance and a very gentle stretching practice to free the neck, shoulders, hips and low back. A restorative yoga session with sound therapy will lead into a 40-minute Yoga Nidra experience. Yoga Nidra is a guided lying-down meditation that induces a state of deep relaxation and peaceful awareness. Yoga Nidra releases cumulative stress from the mind and body by down-regulating inflammation and reducing stress-hormone arousal while harnessing the natural ability for the body and brain to recover and heal with focused rest. Practiced regularly, Yoga Nidra can restore balance to the nervous system, alleviate persistent cycles of anxiety, improve sleep, reduce symptoms of chronic pain and chronic illness, promote healthy brain chemistry, and establish a sense of inner balance, clarity, and self-compassion. No prior yoga experience is required and participants who are working with injury, illness, post-operation or other physical limitation will find this class to be highly supportive, accessible, and restorative.

Space is limited, so advanced registration is required. For the health and safety of all participants, proof of being up-to-date on Covid-19 vaccinations will be required to attend. $35 to register.

Silent Hike & Forest Qigong

Enjoy a quiet, mindful stroll through the woods at the North Carolina Arboretum. A silent hike takes us to scenic treasures on the arboretum property where we will do a restorative qigong practice. Qigong is a series of simple flowing movements that supports the body’s natural healing processes, promotes healthy circulation, invites inner calm, and releases tension from the body. Hikes will be mindfully-paced and qigong practice easy and accessible. Limited to 12 participants for healthy distancing.

Qigong & Guided Meditation on Wednesday Mornings

PURCHASE CLASS PASSES

PURCHASE A MEMBERSHIP

Wednesdays, 10am – 10:45 (begins October 6th)

Qigong means “cultivation of life-energy.” Qigong is the foundation of Tai Chi practice. Instead of a set sequence like Tai Chi, Qigong consists of a wide variety of slow, flowing movements that balance the nervous system and optimize joint mobility, tapping and knocking to circulate blood, lymph, and vital energy, and gentle yoga-like stretches for tension-release. Research demonstrates the effectiveness of qigong in improving physical coordination and balance, mental focus and cognitive health, bone density building, joint stability and mobility, and cardiopulmonary health. Practice of qigong activates the body’s relaxation response, balances the nervous system, increases self-awareness and self-compassion, and reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression.

This class consists of 30-minutes of Qigong practice followed by 15 minutes of guided meditation. The guided meditation practice can be done either seated or lying-down according to your personal preference.

Tuesdays 9:25am – 9:45am (begins Oct 4th)

The benefits of exercising on a rebounder trampoline are numerous: strengthens and tones muscles, builds bone density, boosts cardiovascular health and immune function, improves balance and coordination, and according to a study done by NASA, is 68% more efficient than jogging. The elasticity of the rebounder surface makes it a highly efficient and low-impact exercise for joint health. This class is mindfully paced with modifications offered so that you can adapt the level of challenge to meet your needs. Participants having difficulty with balance are encouraged to use a rebounder with a handle bar. The structure of the class is akin to High Intensity Interval Training where brief bursts of light cardio exercises will be interspersed with gentle stretching and cool-down practices.

Pilates in a chair is more fun and more challenging than you think! Using a sturdy, armless chair as a supportive prop in pilates yields new and creative options for many of the most classic pilates exercises for stretching and strengthening! This class incorporates light dumbbells and resistance bands to help build strength, joint stabilization, and bone density. However, the exercises can also be done without weights or bands and you will still receive plenty of strengthening and toning benefits.
