YOGA SYNTHESIS BOOK GROUP hosted by JENNIFER COAN

Date: 
Mon, 07/12/2010 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm

The current book we are exploring in the Yoga Synthesis Book Group is "Relax & Renew: Restful Yoga for Stressful Times" by Judith Lasater Ph D, PT. This book is like a picture book of basic restorative yoga poses. Ms. Lasater reveals the recipes for undoing our busy lives, relieving stress and how to create healing in the system. Restorative yoga stems from the teachings of BKS Iyengar where props are used to support the body in a pose allowing one to hold the pose longer and deeply relax.

This book group meeting will be more experiential then discussion. We'll choose some of the poses in the book, set them up for each individual and undo according to the book. It is not entirely necessary to read the book first. The book will be able for sale at the studio. Learning to relax and set our goals temporarily aside is at the core of every yoga practice.

The Yoga Synthesis Book Group is a karma yoga event. Jennifer donates her time and Raji and Rose kindly donate the use of the studio. There is a $10 suggested donation. All proceeds this year go toward Haitian Earthquake Relief. Please RSVP to the studio or by email (yogasynthesisnj@yahoo.com).
