The Presence of Peace: Restorative Yoga Infused with Readings from "Ocean of Yoga"

With Body Grace Teacher Emily Steiner and Author Julie Dunlop
Fee: $25 preregistered; $30 drop-in

Does the holiday season have you feeling frazzled?  Come join us for a deeply relaxing restorative yoga practice, honoring the wisdom of rest and renewal.

The workshop will begin with a brief introduction and a gentle breath work practice followed by a series of restorative poses.  As you rest in supported postures, feel the natural rhythm of the flow of your breath.  Move deeper into relaxation with an infusion of guided meditations from the recently released book Ocean of Yoga.  (A book signing will follow the workshop.)

Nourish the harmony of your mind, body, and soul as you offer yourself the gift of peace and rejuvenation in this unique collaboration.~

Emily Steiner (Body Grace teacher), Emily began practicing yoga in 2001 at Integral Yoga Institute in Manhattan under the teachings of Swami Satchidananda. Immediately, she felt more connected, peaceful, and resilient. Along her journey, she has practiced Hatha, Vinyasa, Bikram, Pre-natal, and Mommy and Me yoga in many different settings. Wanting to deepen her understanding of the process that was happening both on and off the mat as a result of yoga, she enrolled in teacher training. Emily is a RYT-500 hour Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Instructor

Julie Dunlop, author of Ocean of Yoga, grew up here in Vienna, VA, graduating from James Madison High School in 1991.  She attended yoga classes with Jan Crerie back when Jan taught at Vienna Presbyterian Church.  Currently, Julie lives in New Mexico where she teaches writing, offers workshops on well-being, and teaches yoga in the pañchakarma program at the Ayurvedic Institute.  As a writer, teacher, and a member of Yoga Alliance and the National Ayurvedic Medical Association, she enjoys bringing together practices that support harmony of body, mind, and soul.
