Restorative Yoga Class


This class is taught by:

Shannon Carlin

Shannon (E-RYT 200 & 
RPYT)visited ashrams with her parents as a child and then many years later, found herself in a yoga class one day. Though unfamiliar with the poses, the breath, and of course-sanskrit, she immediately felt a sense of belonging and of coming home. The experience resonated so deeply with her that she knew she had taken her first steps on a life-long path of study, practice and devotion.Shannon teaches a full-spectrum, balanced practice from challenging, upbeat vinyasa flow to bliss-out restorative. So whether you want to move, play and flow or simply sit comfortably and breathe consciously, you are always welcome in class. Through creative and thoughtful sequencing, Shannon offers a safe and inviting space to explore your boundaries and awaken your innate potential. In her class you'll experience alignment-based flow with clear direction, an uplifting theme and hands-on adjustments set to eclectic music. In between the movement of your breath and body, you'll find an ever-evolving sense of connection to the most authentic parts of yourself and a deeper sense of engagement with the world around you. Come as you are and expect to leave class feeling empowered, focused and inspired.She has completed her 200hr certification with Bernadette Birney, Restorative training with Jillian Pranksy, Prenatal Certification with Sue Elkind and she is presently working towards her 500hr advanced training with Tiffany Cruikshank of Yoga Medicine. She also continues to study yoga philosophy with Dr. Douglas Brooks.

Nicole Metchick

Nicole is a certified yoga instructor through Yoga Alliance (RYTs), and she has also taught Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga for several years following a Yale-affiliated Dancing Thru Pregnancy program. Nicole teaches a rhythmic and sometimes vigorous Vinyasa style class that emphasizes the importance of fluid movement linked closely to pranayama (breath awareness). Nicole’s creative sequencing and intelligent alignment, encourages physical stability, increases flexibility, and enhances the body’s natural detoxification process. Nicole has a technical approach to the postures, affirming one’s commitment to practice and offering a mindful approach to living that is evident both on and off the mat. Her distinctive style synchronizes breath with movement which she believes brings the transformative qualities of yoga and healthful living to the forefront. Over the past 14 years, Nicole’s teaching experience contains a broad range of class and student types including prenatal, postnatal, youth, adult and seniors. She is also a student herself and enjoys taking classes with new teachers and styles for personal enjoyment and to expand her own perspectives.
This class has limited space so pre-registration online is a good idea. This yoga practice is extremely gentle and is suitable for everybody, the new student up to the advanced practitioner. Using breathing techniques and guided visualization, the body is supported by blankets, blocks, bolsters and straps in a series of postures intended to allow deep relaxation. This style of yoga addresses mental & physical stress, fatigue and tension while revitalizing the body.
