Sunday Jan 17th 5:30pm: At Our Table: Restorative Yoga Experience.
Sunday Jan 17th 5:30pm: At Our Table: Restorative Yoga Experience. Open to anyone who needs to relax and de-stress. No yoga experience necessary.
We are all carrying a little (or a lot) more stress during this unique time. During this one hour virtual session, we will do a little stretching and gentle movement to help get our bodies more relaxed after a day on the slopes or whatever you have been doing. And then you will be led through a relaxing session of yoga nidra (a guided meditation). At the end you will feel more refreshed and ready to take on another day.

A lifelong learning, Pam has also been certified as a ski instructor, kayak instructor, and mountain bike instructor. She loves to understand how the body moves and what makes it work in sport. Pam believes strongly that the restorative work we do after exercise is as important to the body as the workout.
Cost for this session is $20 per person.
