Restorative with Siobhan McAuley

Wednesdays 5:30-6:30
Restorative with Siobhan McAuley

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

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. To learn more about The Process go to to access a new teaching every week, free of charge.

Yin Yasa with Laura Clingan

Vinyasa and Yin styles of yoga will be creatively blended together throughout this 60 minute class. Vinyasa (flow) sequences will link movement with breath to develop strength, balance, flexibility and focus. Yin postures will be incorporated throughout the class to practice stillness in poses designed to target the deeper connective tissues of the body.


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.

Always seeking new ways to make yoga accessible to everyone, she is currently pursuing her Yoga For All certification with Dianne Bondy and Amber Karnes. Her belief is that the physical and mental benefits of yoga are attainable for anyone regardless of physical ability.  She works to meet her students where they are and encourages self-acceptance and compassion.

Contemplative Movement Series – Practice

Process-Based Contemplative Movement 

In these classes students will learn The Process which is a framework that will help achieve deep, lasting peace and an internally sourced experience of happiness, regardless of circumstances or situation. The aim is to fully embody our experience of practice through The Process combining theory, contemplation and action so we can learn to be fully present in our bodies as they are. Students are encouraged to enroll in both Contemplative Movement classes for a complete and thorough experience.

1:30 – 3PM Practice

In this class we build on the theory of The Process and learn how to apply it through the use of movement as a means to explore how the busyness of the mind drives our perception of ourselves and our lives. How we show up for practice is how we show up for our life. Through this contemplative approach to practice we begin to see ourselves and the world around us more clearly as we nurture the well spring of vitality that is always present within us.

No experience is required, however students will benefit from taking the Theory and Practice class first as an introduction to The Process. To learn more about The Process visit The Meaning Maker Movement.
