Restorative Yoga with Special Guest Teacher Melissa Smith and Cellist Evgeni Raychev

Melissa Smith is graciously detouring off the beaten path to visit Morning Glory Yoga Studios, once again, and we couldn’t be more thrilled.  Don’t miss out on this special treat from an amazing teacher traveling to Nacogdoches all the way from Canada.

Restorative Yoga Session and Special Music…

Experience postures that promote deep relaxation and recuperation. The long held poses will support a strong body, mind and spirit connection with the strategic placement of Yoga props which will encourage the body to release. Props will help facilitate a soma or “living aware” experience by awakening awareness of the body within or silence those overworked areas. We will flow with a gentle movement warm up, subtle body breath work, a unique restorative sequence and finish with a deliciously long Yoga Nidra meditation. You will leave refreshed and renewed.
