Restorative Yoga


This class is taught by:

Melanie Hale

Melanie fell in love with yoga in 2004 while searching for some peace and well-being in her life. After practicing regularly, she began to feel the healing effects of the practice. As her body, mind and spirit began to change, she decided that she wanted to share this gift with others. She completed the RYT 200-hour Yoga Certification with Todd Norian and Anne Green in 2012 and began spreading the joy of yoga so that others can feel the healing effects of this practice. Melanie's purpose as a Yoga instructor is to assist anyone in their journey of yoga through participation in her classes.

Sara Wank

Sara’s love for dance, movement, anatomy, and kinesiology is what brought her to her first Yoga class in 2005. She has found an art form in the many styles of Yoga throughout her years of practice, especially in Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Anusara, Jivamukti, and Satyananda.
 
She received her 200-hour Teacher Training in 2012 through Marni Task’s Jivasara training and holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Lake Erie College where her studies were focused in Anatomy, Kinesiology, Pilates, Wellness, and Sports Nutrition.
This practice is designed to restore the nervous system and help release deep seeded tensions from the body and mind. Deep restorative work improves joint mobility and range of motion, serving for excellent physical therapy. Postures are held with the assistance of props for extended periods of time, allowing the body to release and relax. Aromatherapy oils and light massage touch may be incorporated into select sessions. Students must be able to arrange their own props and move comfortably and safely on the floor. Class size is limited to the number of props needed so we recommend registering in advance.

Suitable for all levels. Beginners welcome! / Balancing classes: Vinyasa – All Levels, Power Vinyasa, Hour of Power, Deep Stretch Vinyasa, Slow Burn, Sculpt, BUTI Sculpt, BUTI Yoga
