Anne Petrov will teach during the regularly scheduled Yoga-All Levels class Friday December 4th from 6:30 - 8:00. Followed by tea and biscuts.

We will learn a traditional head massage, shirabhyanga, which can be done at home between family members, or during a break at work, sitting comfortably in a chair, with or without oil. The head is the centre of the nervous system.  A precise contact with different energy points on the head and face relieve headaches, toothaches, stress, and to help alleviate insomnia.  Our workshop will give some background and provide a hands-on practice of traditional shirabhyanga.  We will train in pairs, discuss the health benefits, and give each other feedback regarding this regenerating experience.

In the 1940s, Swami Sivananda developed a yoga which he called "the yoga of synthesis", which included relaxation, pranayama, meditation and asanas with 12 classical postures performed in a particular order. We will do a traditional integral class complete with mantras, pranayama and a guided meditation with malas at the end, so if you have a mala, bring it with you. We will also have some to share. Focus will be on the breath throughout the class and the importance of deep relaxation.
