8:30 am – 9:30 am: Restorative Yoga with Kim Bushore-Maki
Easing discomfort and pain and finding a new relationship with their body are just some of the benefits the women have experienced from this Restorative Yoga class.

Our bodies are miraculous, and when they are good in working condition, we can do all sorts of marvelous things.

But sometimes our bodies challenge us: give us projects to work on in the form of dis-ease and pain. These challenges often make us feel irritable, sad, scared and lonely.

Restorative Yoga is designed to help you find a way out of this quagmire and create a different relationship with your body.
