This class includes Crystal Bowl sound healing. The class is for de-stressing and re-balancing our energy. This combined yoga practice will renew and ready us for a calm evening, good night’s sleep and clear day ahead. Our Restorative Yoga will use a variety of postures supported with props, such as chairs, bolsters, blankets and straps to provide a deep body relaxation. We move our spine in all directions, alternately stimulating and soothing our organ systems. We reverse the effects of gravity, returning the fluids to our upper body and enhancing heart function. Reducing muscle tension and fatigue, as well as improving digestion, we provide a supportive environment to relax the body. We end with Yoga Nidra as a very powerful way to still the mind. It is not necessary to concentrate. Simply listen to the instructions, follow them mentally, and refrain from sleeping. Yoga Nidra can calm the mind and elevate our spirit. The crystal bowls are woven into the silence, creating vibrations and harmonics that stimulate the brain’s calming centers and offer deep relaxation.
Joelle’s welcoming presence puts us at ease, inviting us to individualize our practice. She guides her students to work toward quieting the mind and bringing about the natural flow of the body. Her creative style, rooted in her knowledge of both yoga and Ayurveda, consists of conscious movement, awareness, imagery, and balanced choreography. She gently encourages us to cultivate an intimate connection with all layers of our being.
A certified Ayurvedic practitioner and Yoga instructor, Joelle graduated in New York from Ishta Yoga and New World Ayurveda. Her additional certifications include Yoga Nidra with Jennifer Reis, Restorative / Yoga Nidra with Mona Anand and Marma therapy with Dr. Shekhar Annambholta.
