Gentle Flow/Restorative


This class is taught by:

Margaret Jennings

Margaret's passion for yoga began more than a decade ago. She holds a Master's Degree in School Psychology and pursued her love of yoga when she retired. Margaret received her 200 hour RYT Certification in Refined Flow at Absolute Yoga. Her enthusiasm extends to the benefits of meditation. Margaret is certified in Meditation and Visual Imagery through the Huntington Meditation and V.I. Center. Her training is a combination of Anusara, which is based on bio-mechanical principals, blended with the breath and movement of Prana Flow. She continues to study Anatomy, Therapeutics and the emotional benefits of Yoga and Meditation. As a dedicated practitioner, Margaret views her practice as a way of life and one of the best ways to balance spiritual, emotional and physical healing. Within the framework of joyful exploration, she creates an environment for her students which promotes self discovery, curiosity, strength and peace. She is blessed to be loved and supported by her teachers and her wonderful family, Kevin, Kyle, Katie and Colleen.

Dawn Peer

She is teacher trained and certified at the 200 hour level with Suzanne Cardinal, ERYT-500 at Into This World Yoga Teacher Training, and is registered with Yoga Alliance.

Prior to Dawn becoming a yoga teacher- Dawn received a BA in Sociology at Rosemont College, Pa. and a MS degree in Elementary Education, at CW Post University, NY and has a Permanent Teaching Certificate in New York State. She was an Elementary teacher at East Woods School in Oyster Bay, NY and Twin Pines Elementary School in Brentwood, NY. Dawn was initially drawn to yoga for the physical benefits after the birth of her first child. The connection to mind, body and spirit became stronger the more she practiced yoga both on and off the mat. Dawn soon noticed the transforming affects yoga had in her personal life. Dawn decided she wanted to share this transformational effect of yoga with others and became a registered yoga teacher.
Dawn guides each of her students to explore their own unique style. Her classes create a safe and comfortable atmosphere for each of her students to develop their own practice. Her dedication to inspire others is apparent in all of her classes.
This class is a great for anyone looking to reduce stress, release tightness in the body in a gentle way or anyone new to yoga. It begins with an extra gentle flow to open the body preparing oneself for a luxurious second part of class in Restorative Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is a relaxation technique guided by the teacher's voice where you identify sensations throughout your body, and focus on your breath, while remaining in a state of relaxed awareness so that you may release deeply held tension in your body -- some which you may not even be aware of. Yoga Nidra will be used while the body is supported with blankets, bolsters, blocks in relaxing restorative poses - to allow the body to soften, open and bring you into a relaxed peaceful state.
