Summer Restorative Series with Sarah Jones
Sundays From: 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
June 5 will be a focus on Backbends in restorative. Working on the throat and heart chakra in restorative allows for self expression and emotionally healing. We will learn to heal the body through relaxation and the mind through loving kindness.
July 10 will focus on forward folds. Releasing fear and past tensions in our restorative class allows for us to reward the body with natural energy, heal relationships, and tap into our creativity. This class can re-energize you and give you a new lease on life.
August 7 will focus on total relaxation. Release the burden you carry upon your shoulders, give into the support of the earth, and release anything that distracts you from being completely present. We all have those days full of too many things to do and not enough time to do them. Give yourself the gift of time, treat your body to these moments of relaxation and remember that in order to give you must restore your own life force. Walk away ready to embrace the moment.
Cost is $25 per workshop
$20 early bird pricing (ends 3 days prior to each date) & Symmetry members

FLASH Yoga – FLASH Yoga operates on the idea that the world is our studio. FLASH Yoga is a new program we’re introducing at Symmetry Yoga in which we’ll be hosting yoga classes or yoga related events off site at interesting, picturesque, inspirational, fascinating locations and spaces. Yoga in parks and on beaches are popular because they offer the chance to combine the power of familiar precision with the experience of being in a different and intriguing setting.
We will secure many of these FLASH spaces early enough to put them on the regular event schedule on our website, but many will require us to use Facebook and Twitter to announce Flash events, so anyone interested in receiving FLASH Yoga event information, please like us on Facebook & follow us on Twitter. We will constantly be looking for new FLASH virtual studios and announce them on our website and social media. Information will include description and location of Flash site, day and time, duration, capacity, fee, teacher, class type, facilities at the site, parking, directions, and any specific information or suggestions.
If you have, or know of, a space you think might be ideal for a FLASH Yoga class, please contact us here.
