Busy? Come slow down and nourish yourself! Restorative yoga is the use of props to support the body in positions of ease and comfort to facilitate relaxation and health. In this class, we will settle into some supported floor poses while releasing tension, gently breathing, and allowing gravity to draw us towards the steadiness of the earth underneath. All of the organ systems in the body are benefited during deep relaxation, and a few of the measurable results of deep relaxation are the reduction of blood pressure, stress-hormone levels, and blood sugar levels, as well as improvement in digestion, the reduction of muscle tension, insomnia, anxiety, and generalized fatigue. This class is a practice of actively cultivating the attitude of letting go and will help teach you to learn how to deeply relax. Leave feeling refreshed and restored!
All levels welcome.
Effective, Friday, Aug 6th; we are reinstating that masks are to be worn at all times except while bathing or swimming.
The state of Illinois has issued a mask mandate for everyone (vaccinated and unvaccinated) that will begin on Monday, August 30th. That means staff and members will be required in all locations throughout the building except while swimming in the water. This includes locker rooms, pool deck, and while working out. We have signage to let members know about mask usage and staff will be required to enforce the mask mandate and we have always followed NCH and state guidelines, and we will continue to do so. We are having the safest environment to work and provide our members.
