Ground and Restore


This class is taught by:

Kristen Matheson

Kristen is fascinated by the power that yoga has to help people through their asana practice and everyday life. First introduced to yoga in 2005, Kristen has developed her practice and enjoys how it complements her love of the outdoors and active lifestyle. A high school science teacher for over ten years, Kristen was naturally drawn to the Inner Evolution Teacher Training program. She brings a fresh approach to students through her emphasis on exploring the balance of alignment and breath while letting go of mind “stuff” and just being in the present moment and pose. When not on her yoga mat, Kristen loves to be active with her fur-babies, Vegas and Maggie- who thoroughly enjoy giving kisses to humans who are practicing yoga poses down on their level. Kristen is excited to share in the adventure of living yoga on and off the mat with her students and the community.

In the first part of class get grounded with a yin practice focusing on floor-based yoga postures that open & stretch the body in a balanced way, releasing stress, tension, and opening up the energy systems of the body. Followed by Restorative Yoga, where the body is entirely supported by props in order to soothe the nervous system and calm the mind-body. This class may also incorporate other aspects of yoga, including pranayama (breathing practices) and meditation practices. The intention is that you leave this practice feeling more grounded, nourished, and energetically renewed.
