Valentine’s Chocolate Partner Yoga and iRest

The purpose of Partner Yoga is to deepen and expand your yoga practice (in more ways than one!). Partner yoga poses work mainly by adding resistance. Your muscles can relax and stretch while your partner’s resistance help your limbs stay in the pose from a passive prospective. Join Aiko who is an Occupational therapist Assistant that can modify or enhance each pose for the just right challenge for you and your partner in a therapeutic way.

The Chocolate meditation is aimed to entice all senses and ease into a relaxed and calmed state to prepare for the 45 min rest portion. There is a variety of chocolate for all dietary needs including: gluten and dairy free, dark, milk and white chocolate. Scientists believe when we eat plant foods (luscious dark chocolate comes from the cacao plant) rich in flavonoids and antioxidants, their benefits are passed on to us. Antioxidants protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals, which are unstable oxygen molecules thought to be responsible for aging and some diseases. When you have too many free radicals in your body, they start to attack your cells, and that can lead, over time, to low-grade inflammation and to some diseases — cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s.
