​ Awakened Life School of Yoga with Liz Carey
January 21, 2016 to March 3, 2016 5:15 PM - 6:30 PM (ET)
​ Awakened Life School of Yoga with Liz Carey

Arts in Medicine is an emerging field within healthcare that addresses what many have long known and medical research is now proving – that music, writing, pottery, dance, yoga, storytelling and other art activities can play an important role in healing not just the body, but the mind and spirit of an individual. 

The Apalachicola School of Art is hosting and partnering with Franklin’s Promise and  Liz Carey Awakened Life School of Yoga to introduce Restorative Yoga for a 6-week series in early 2016, offered on Thursday from 5:15pm to 6:30pm.

“Restorative Yoga” is a relaxing style of yoga where the postures are mostly reclined on a mat that is on the floor, or sitting up on the floor.  The intention of this style of yoga is for relaxing & stress-reduction, focus on breath, meditation, concentration, being present and letting go.

This style of yoga is well-suited for audiences that are stressed, have never done yoga before, are older, people who claim to be “stiff”, and those who need relaxation in their lives.  Participants will need to be able to get down on the floor and sit, lie, or lay on their sides. 

Props are heavily used in Restorative Yoga.  This includes mats, bolsters, blankets, straps and sandbags.  Recommended materials for participants to bring; two blankets and two king pillows, yoga mats if you have them.  The School of Art can supply mats and Awakened Life Yoga the other props.

“Restorative Yoga” Series would be offered on the following day/dates:      Thursday:  January 21, January 28, February 4, 11, 18, and March 3 - Time:  5:15pm to 6:30pm,    Location:  Apalachicola Center for History, Culture and Art, 86 Water Street,  Cost:  $15 per class, or $70 for the

​6 week

​ 
series

The overall goal of Arts in Medicine is to integrate performing, meditative and visual arts into a wide variety of settings to promote community wellness.

Please call us to reserve your spot or for additional information at 855-272-5224 or email us atapalachicolaschoolofart@gmail.com
