Take some time for self-care and join Meghan and Lisa for two blissful hours of renewal during the busy summer season! Restorative yoga allows your muscles to release and stretch passively with the aid of gravity and props. As you relax into each posture for several minutes, you will also receive Reiki, a gentle hands-on energy technique that promotes stress reduction and relaxation. Throughout the session a gentle essential oil will be diffused in the air, and in various poses you will be offered specific oils to enhance the relaxation and healing effects of the practice. This is a joint taught workshop with Reiki practitioners Meghan MacLean, RYT-500, and Lisa MacLean, R.N. Limit of 10 students so please sign up early. Cost: $35.00. Teachers: Meghan and Lisa.
Meghan’s mother, Lisa, planted the seed of yoga in her when she was very young, but as an adult she found a new appreciation for it. Driven by low-back/hip pain and a desire to quiet the mind while energizing the body she began to practice regularly. She found yoga therapeutic and empowering, body and soul, and wanted to share these teachings with others. She received her initial training in vinyasa flow and yin restorative at Honest Yoga in Burlington, VT and went on to complete her 500hr training in classical yoga and yoga therapy at YogaLife Institute of NH in Exeter. Meghan is a certified children’s yoga teacher and Reiki 2 practitioner and has received training in prenatal yoga and yoga for trauma. She offers private and group classes as well as workshops. Meghan grew up in the Kearsarge area and is grateful for the opportunity to share the benefits of yoga with her community.
