Are you seeking balance with fitness, well-being, and weight loss? Be the most you can be. Be more effective, excited, fit in not only body but in mind and relationships.
Are you over-committed and do not feel you have time for a fitness routine let alone a yoga practice? Do you have 7-15 minutes to build lean muscle, create hormonal balance, cardio, optimization?
Get the same benefit as a 2-4 hour work out that has lingering benefits up to 48-72 hours. By utilizing yoga HIIT 7-15 minute allows you the time to practice a more relaxing contemplative yoga and not feel guilty about a rest day.
Have you been using your yoga practice as a fitness practice? If you have you can easily lose the relaxation part of yoga your body needs through movement and breath – moving meditation. Many people do not take the time for a more restorative or yin practice because they are looking for a vinyasa practice to gain more fitness. By targeting a shorter amount of time with yoga HIIT; it will free up time for restorative and yin practice that we all need. A majority of people are kicking their asses with vinyasa yoga and then not taking the time for other practice like the opening of connective tissue through yin yoga.
During yoga practice we lose some things like cardio optimization, high mindful impact movement that builds bone health, fast twitch muscles that hug you in and tone you. This is not about losing body fat as the signal of good health, it is about getting fit for yourself and your body shape.

Fit is the new sexy!

Here's what Yoga FIIT can do for you by making your metabolism more efficient:
• Lean muscle mass that is flexible and open
• Take away stress, release stress hormones like cortisol for better health, decrease fat storage, and the bloated feeling.
• Get decent sleep with decreased pain
• Work with the mind to slow down through yoga and breath
• Focus on the belly area and optimize digestion. 95% of serotonin is released from your belly – (the calm nerve transmitter).
• Magically learn about yourself. And how the practice will influence your outer world and decisions you make - relationships, conscious to unconscious.
• Move strongly and efficiently – without overdoing it and adding to your stress.

• What to bring
Water bottle. We have water you can refill your bottle with.
Towel, comfy clothes. Dress how you would to go to the gym or a yoga class. Clothes you can jump in, stretch, and bend over in.

• Important to know

Yoga Nidra Grass Valley

Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra

       with Janet Rankin

Friday, January 12th 

4:30 – 6:00 pm

      $17 drop in

Restorative Yoga is where all yoga postures are fully supported by the use of blankets, bolsters, blocks and straps to create a sense of ease, well-being and calmness. Each posture is selected for its ability to quiet the mind and rest the entire body giving you a deep rejuvenating experience. Restorative yoga can be practiced by everyone, regardless of age or experience, and can be extremely beneficial:

To quiet the mind ~ Deeply relax the body ~ Allow healing to occur ~ To balance the extraordinary stresses of life.

Yoga Nidra is the art of conscious deep relaxation. During the practice, the body is still, but the mind is awake as an active participant in the relaxation process known as “yoga sleep”. In this relaxation, all burdens melt away as you attain a blissful state of awareness much more rejuvenating than ordinary sleep. It is a powerful healing practice for body, mind, and consciousness. It restores the proper flow of energy throughout the body and mind, allowing the systems of the body to function properly.
