Community Yoga for a Cause; A Fundraiser for March of Dimes

Saturday May 4th, 10:00am-noon at the State College Friends School

MofD yoga1 in 4 families experience pregnancy loss, infertility or infant death. It’s a very real possibility that at least one member of any given class is currently dealing with the trauma of these experiences. And it’s no secret that WIM holds our sense of community near and dear to our hearts! We continually show up for and support one another, on and off the mat, in a variety of ways.

Join us in lifting up those around us, who are impacted by these statistics, with a special yoga practice lead by our WIM family of instructors.

By supporting March of Dimes and March for Babies, we are advocating for better healthcare for moms and babies, education for pregnant women and families, and support for families in NICUs.
A donation of $20 is requested to reserve your spot for this all levels inclusive practice and light refreshments. All proceeds go to March of Dimes.

Yoga Nidra Deep Relaxation

Sunday, May 19th, 4:30-5:30pm

yoga nidra2While technically a form of meditation, most people think of Yoga Nidra as deep relaxation. Yoga Nidra uses breath awareness, body scan, guided visualization and other techniques to re-wire the entire nervous system by teaching you how to do nothing.

We may begin with some movement to help increase our energy and body awareness, but the bulk of this class (the true Yoga Nidra piece) involves lying down in stillness. It is important to be comfortable, so feel free to bring a small pillow for under your head, a small blanket to keep you warm, or a cover for your eyes.
Class cards and drop-ins accepted, though you are encouraged to save yourself a space by registering on the Class Calendar page.
