These turbulent times have inspired us to add a new Kula class to down regulate, restore, heal, and reset the nervous system. Enjoy the antidote for the stresses of our times (and a perfect compliment to the Yang dominance of most Kula classes). You can do chaturanga tomorrow. Right now, drop in for a Kula Reset: Restorative. 

This class welcomes in a sacred pause for a neurological reset and increased vitality. In essence, we soothe and reprogram our nervous systems to cultivate an internal sense of safety, increased capacity for compassion, resourcefulness, and empowerment. The practice is informed and inspired by the work of Dr. Gail Parker, who offers a beautiful description: The body has an awareness that is deeply visceral, different from cognitive awareness. Restorative yoga supports embodied awareness, which is an awareness that eases deep into the nervous system, where contacted states caused by stress and trauma can release. This is where profound and lasting change takes place.
