Donna's is a well-guided class that ensures you feel confident in your practice. You will leave feeling relaxed and more centered.

Donna Johnson instructs the following:
  • Yin Yoga
  • This class is passive and restorative. You will learn how to relax your muscles in order to improve mobility and the overall health of your joints. Poses are held for 3-5 minutes in order to get deep into the connective tissues. Yin is recommended if you are over the age of 35, an athlete, sore, stiff, or tense. Yin also teaches breathing techniques that help improve mood, sleep, and mobility. Props will be used to encourage proper alignment and hands-on assist will allow for deeper relaxation. This is an all levels class.

  • Yoga Nidra
  • This will be a 75 minute practice. We will open with some breathing and a few relaxing yoga poses to prepare you for Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra also known as Yogic Sleep is a state of conscious Deep Sleep. In Yoga Nidra, you leave the Waking state, go past the Dreaming state, and go to Deep Sleep, yet remain awake.

    Yoga Nidra is a practice in total systematic conscious relaxation. This state is reached by separating the external awareness of the physical body through various stages. It results in a state where you are asleep with a trace of awareness, relaxing both the mind and the body deeply. Yoga Nidra brings an incredible calmness, quietness and clarity. Yoga Nidra is one of the deepest of all meditations, leading awareness through many levels of mental process to a state of stillness and insight.

    Please bring your favorite pillow and blanket. It is recommended that you wear light, loose, comfortable clothing.
