Join us for an afternoon of relaxation and renewal supported by acupuncture-enhanced restorative poses. You will be guided through a very slow, deeply therapeutic two-hour restorative yoga practice, during which you will receive two separate needling sessions.
As you rest comfortably, needles will be inserted to gently access and move qi (life force or vital energy). The intention is to facilitate a deeper level of relaxation and provide a soft boost to encourage self-healing and restoration of personal balance. A community acupuncture model will be followed, and approximately 5-8 points will be selected from potential locations along the acupuncture meridians: arms/hands, legs/feet, face or scalp. Hands-on massage/acupressure may be applied in addition to needles. Following our practice, a raw herbal tea to supplement your experience will be served.
Open to all levels of practitioners, but it is highly recommended that you’ve experienced acupuncture before. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early. You’ll be asked to sign a consent form and get settled in with props, etc. Wear loose, comfortable clothing that can be moved to the level of the elbow and knee if needed.
