In the past month, you may have been focusing on several resolutions: I will go to the gym or yoga studio every day. I will kick my own butt at least three times a week. I will become so fit that I will develop abs of steel and Olympic-level biceps and be able to go from crow pose to headstand to handstand using only the strength in a single pinkie finger.

All worthy goals.

But what we often forget as we set our resolutions is that a more challenging goal can be the search for inner peace: a calmness and quietness of the mind that allows us to react to and handle life’s ups and downs with greater ease, optimism, and gratitude.

If this is something you know you need to work on in your own life, consider signing up for the last two workshops in Three Weeks to Inner Peace, a restorative yoga series.

Week Two—Restorative Poses:

As a vinyasa instructor, I teach vinyasa yoga, during which we flow from pose to pose, matching every movement to an inhale or an exhale. This is a meditation in itself: a meditation in motion. But rarely do we get the chance to sit in our poses for long periods of time… to really sink into them.

This week, we will spend the duration of class in supported, restorative poses that we will be able to easily hold for 5 to 10 minutes at a time. This will give our muscles the chance to really let go, which can be a nice feeling to experience during that time of year when we are so often curling in on ourselves—tensing all of our muscles—in a vain attempt to protect ourselves from the cold.

These are also poses that can be practiced at home as a means of easing anxiety or of quieting the mind before bedtime.

This is the second workshop in a three-week series. Follow the link below for more information on the third week:

Week Three—Yin Yoga + Yoga Nidra

The price for any single class in this series is $20. Sign up at the Verona Yoga website.

Hope to see you there!
