Deep rest is one of the most important elements needed for us to create lasting peace, happiness and healing. When the body is unable to rest long enough and with sufficient depth so that the parasympathetic nervous system is activated, the bodies natural healing capacity never gets ‘turned on’.
In this class, students will learn how to practice deep rest offering a more sustained internal peace than a good nights sleep or a massage. Through consistent practice the body will learn to respond more readily while reducing the constant busyness of the mind. This produces a lasting internally sourced experience of peace, happiness and freedom while nourishing the body’s ability to heal itself.
Siobhan McAuley is the founder of The Meaning Maker Movement and the creator of The Process, a conceptual framework that teaches us how to access an internally sourced experience of happiness. Through the lens of The Process, students learn how to develop a daily practice not as something they must do but as a way of experiencing the truth of who they are. The aim of her work is to support others in establishing a practice in which they are their own teachers.

Thinking about trying power yoga but not sure what it’s all about? Start here with this ‘Introduction to Power Yoga’ class. Learn the basics of Vinyasa (flow), practice foundational poses, develop strength, endurance, flexibility, and balance. While this is an introduction to Power Yoga, it will be moderately challenging so be prepared to sweat and get your heart rate up while getting a full-body workout.
Laura began practicing yoga in 2015 as a way to relieve stress and add a new form of physical activity to her routine. She was hooked immediately and it wasn’t long before she sensed that yoga was going to be a transformative power in her life. She’s been truly amazed by the many benefits that yoga has provided in her life including a more positive self-image, self-compassion, confidence, physical and emotional strength, and an openness to embrace life. She felt a calling to share the gift of yoga with others and completed her 200-RYT training in 2018 with Kim Lomonoco at The Glowing Body in Knoxville, TN. She enjoys practicing and teaching power flow, Yin, and gentle yoga.
