Poetry in Motion: a mellow yoga class punctuated by verse
Sunday, February 17th, 2-4pm, $20
With Sue Whitmarsh from Breathe Yoga
at Serendipity Books, in downtown Chelsea
Yoga can be said to be poetry of the body. And, indeed, there is a beautiful parallel between the two forms of expression: they both require us to slow down, pay attention and notice the sensations that arise as a result of the practice. Just as reading a poem requires us to appreciate, understand, savor, each word, noticing how it relates to the next, our yoga practice weaves individual postures together to create an overall sense, and both are dependent on, and punctuated by the breath.

Join us for the perfect way to spend a chilly Sunday afternoon in February. In the cosy comfort of the bookstore, surrounded by books, we’ll roll out our mats for a gentle yoga flow that will lengthen your body, calm your nervous system and quiet your mind. At intervals, we’ll pause and go deep into some healing Yin postures, and during these pauses, Sue will offer readings that will both evoke emotion and focus your mind. Our practice will conclude with a soothing and restorative deep relaxation, and afterwards we will enjoy tea together.

What to bring: your yoga mat, and a water bottle
I will have spare mats available if you do not have your own.
This will be an all-levels class, with modifications offered for beginners.

Limited space available – preregistration is advised!
