Creating Roots: Guided Meditation and Yin Yoga, The Hive: A Center for Contemplation, Art, and Action, Thursday, 07. November 2019

We'll skip Thanksgiving day, 11/28
Category: Embodiment
Facilitated by Sonya Verma
In our modern world we are often in our heads instead of our bodies. Welcome time to slow down, reflect and honor the magic of the inner world. We will explore embodying and contemplative practices through yin yoga and guided meditations. This is a 6-week class but we welcome drop ins, provided we have space.
Yin yoga is a wonderful complement to the more active, solar yang style of yoga with slower, longer held poses that target the connective tissue in our bodies: ligaments, tendons, and fascia. This allows your body space for a deeper release by holding postures longer (for 3-5 minutes). Supports and props are offered if needed. This gives time for the muscles to relax, allowing the body to go to the deeper tissues. This class combines breathing exercises and Yin to explore the edges of your practice on and off your mat. This class is suitable for all levels and no prior yoga experience is required.
Sonya Verma MHSA, MBI is the founder of Inner Radiant Life, a yoga and meditation facilitator, Ayurvedic Coach and Reiki Master Practitioner with a passion for discovering the intersection of creative expression and healing in a community-based setting. Honoring her Eastern Indian heritage and Western upbringing she brings a unique approach to her work that is heart-centered, compassionate and empowering. She weaves her training from different modalities of somatic healing from various yoga traditions with a centralized focus on embodiment practices. Practice is not evaluated by aesthetic alignment in yoga poses but a deeper connection to the, often ignored, more subtle parts of oneself. Through present awareness, humor and trust, she believes we can develop a more loving and accepting relationship to ourselves and where true healing lies.  Sonya facilitates retreats, leading groups of adults and children through meditation, yoga and sound. She has projects in underserved communities and with Bhutanese Refugees in the region by leading yoga and mindfulness based practices.
Through her gift of holding space and creating a safe and nurturing environment, she encourages people to explore, grow and to have a deeper connection to themselves and others at The Hive. Her training includes E-RYT 200HR Yoga Facilitator, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) facilitator, True Body Project Leader, HealthRHYTHMS Facilitator, and Ayurveda.
