About the event

Yin/Restorative Yoga with Artemis | 6-7:15pm on Thursdays

Melt into dreamy spaciousness in this all-level class that begins  with Yin Yoga and gradually unfurls into a deep Restorative Yoga  practice. Yin Yoga uses gravity, the breath, and longer held poses (3-5  minutes each) to encourage our connective tissue to release tension as  well as blocked/stored emotion. Restorative Yoga is a practice of deep  relaxation that uses props such as blankets, bolsters, and blocks to  help support the body in long-held gentle postures that encourage deep  rest and release. Yin and Restorative are quiet, consensual  conversations with the body. If at any time during class you find  yourself forcing your body into a pose, you are no longer doing yin or  restorative yoga. The key is to work with where your body is at any  given moment, not to force it to be where it is not. Each class will  offer modification options for each unique pose to help you meet your  body where it is that day.

Introductory special: 3 classes for $30

Artemis Wylde Artemis began a yoga asana practice in their late teens. Just a few  years later, they started to deepen and expand that practice in response  to their experience with chronic pain. Over the years, the yogic  practice of acknowledging discomfort as a guide and teacher has  transformed them to their core. After several years of delving into a  personal practice, Artemis took a 200 hour yoga teacher training with  Adrea Robles and Dave Robles of Liberation Yoga and Wellness Center  followed by a 300 hour Advanced YTT with Johanna Bell of Illumina Yoga  in the lineage of Sri Dharma Mittra. They have also trained with Biff  Mithoefer in the art of teaching yin yoga and apprenticed with Adrea  Robles in the craft of teaching Restorative Yoga. Artemis’ personal practice and teaching approach are grounded in the  intentional release of self-judgment, the practice of self-compassion,  the art of learning from discomfort, and the belief that yoga is a  practice for any body, any mind, any soul. They encourage students to  lovingly accept their minds and bodies as they are in the present  moment. In their classes, Artemis strives to create a container where  people can be honest, vulnerable, and gentle with themselves, explore  their edges, laugh with one another, and tap into a deep sense of  community.
