Yoga Classes & Workshops

I believe that everybody can practice yoga and enjoy the many benefits it offers. A daily yoga routine can be transforming to your heart, mind and body; when practiced with awareness and intention. I invite you to join me in a yoga practice that most suits your needs, whether it be meditation and breathwork, gentle stretching, or invigorating sun salutations and inversions. My teaching style is heart centered, incorporating a focus on the breath as it connects to mindful movement and optimal alignment principles. The goal of our yoga practice is to embody a graceful flow in all of our actions, cultivating clarity, balance and mindfulness, whether we are on the mat or engaging in our everyday activities.

at The Lavender Lotus Yoga Studio, Galesburg Illinois

Please join us for a time of relaxation and renewal!

This session will begin with a variety of breathing techniques and gentle floor movements that focus on slowing down, creating space, and bringing awareness to the body's connective tissues.

We will conclude with a long savasana, pranayama work, and a short meditation.

This practice is accessible for all levels, including those who have never tried yoga. Props (bolster, blocks, several blankets or towels, eye pillow, and strap) are necessary and will be provided to make the practice more accessible.

Following the 90 minute yoga session, you are invited to share in a variety of local winter wellness herbal teas, tonics, and elixirs from tina's Botanicals as Tina leads a short discussion of the medicinal herbs and herbal remedies that she grows and are available to us.

Yoga for Optimal Health

Yoga Invitation for Optimal Health in Galesburg with Tina

Please join Tina in 2023 as we expand and embody our understanding of all the possibilities our yoga practice has to offer us.

B.K.S. Iyengar suggests that the practice of yoga teaches us to live fully in the physical and spiritual sense, while cultivating an expanded consciousness of loving, living, and healing in our everyday activities for ourselves and those around us. The practice of Yoga is a prescription for optimal health in body, mind, and spirit and can be life changing. When the yoga practice is crafted and implemented carefully, it is accessible to us all and can increase overall health, reduce stress, promote states of relaxation, improve balance, strengthen bones, promote flexibility, improve immune system, increase oxygen supply to tissues, lift mood, foster psychological equanimity, heighten sexual functioning and fulfillment, and promote spiritual well being.

Goals For Yoga For Optimal Health Include:

  • Establish a daily home practice
  • Explore and experience new techniques, new poses, and new styles of yoga
  • Support each other by practicing together in community as we share and contribute to mutual accountability

This is a commitment to enhance your overall health.
