Elemental Restorative with Live Guitar

Sunday, August 25th 6 - 8pm

In this class you're invited to relax into a state of openness, ease, and clarity through supported yoga postures accessible to most, guided visualizations, and breathwork. Restorative Yoga is a therapeutic style of yoga that utilizes props to make it easier for your body to move into certain poses, and thus, surrender to the pose. Practicing poses using props provides a completely supportive environment for total relaxation. Typically, restorative poses are sustained for five to ten minutes or for as long as you are comfortable. All accompanied by the sometimes grounding, sometimes ethereal guitar soundscapes of Morgan Leininger.

Cost: $20. Teacher: Tara.

Tara is a certified yoga and meditation practitioner. Her training includes basic and advanced certification in Kripalu and vinyasa flow yoga, Yoga4Cancer, restorative yoga and in a variety of meditative lineages. She is an authorized Shri Vidya guide under the tutelage of her Guru, Uma-Parvathinath Saraswati. Sri Vidya is an ancient and intricate science and practice honoring the Divine Feminine. Meditation, mantra, and ritual are the practices of this path. With devotion and surrender, Tara offers yoga within its full and living context. The physical aspects of the practice serve deepening embodiment and preparation for meditation, all on the path of liberation.

After practicing music and yoga separately for decades, Tara and Morgan were joined together when Morgan entered yoga teacher training and was introduced to the world of kirtan. This led to an exploration of traditional Indian music and translation of various ragas to a specially tuned acoustic guitar. Now he combines elements of western music and eastern ragas along with the addition of a looper and e-bow to expand the sonic palette and create completely unique live immersive soundscapes for yoga. Tuned to the energy and focus of the teacher and class in the moment, this sonic support system is a moving, supportive, sustaining soundtrack for your experience.
