Shiva Deep® classes offer students the chance to increase flexibility by releasing muscular tension and tension in related connective tissues.  These classes are suitable for all levels and provide students with the opportunity for a deep stretch with long holds in only a few poses.  Setting intentions and practicing gratitude, students move through a short warmup and then practice a deep stretch sequence.  Long holds allow for a deep release of muscular tension and tension in the related connective tissues and encourage the relaxation response.  Students practice going into the fire, staying present, and letting go of the distractions of the mind.  This class concludes with a final rest and seated meditation.

Shiva Rest® classes offer students the chance to experience a full-length guided yoga Nidra meditation practice.  Yoga Nidra is sometimes referred to as psychic sleep or deep relaxation with inner awareness.  Yoga Nidra is a powerful technique in which students learn to relax consciously while sitting in a comfortable seated position or lying in a comfortable resting position.  Students practice a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation, learning to let go of the outer world and the body, and turn inward, and ultimately to let go of the mind and experience a deeper connection to the true nature of the Self.  This class is suitable for all levels and is excellent for those who are new to meditation and for anyone who is looking to reduce stress, promote healing, find more rest and relaxation, and for those who want to experience a deeper state of Being and Awareness.
