November Newsletter
Greetings from Niyama Yoga!

It may seem like an odd quote to have for November and a time of Thanks-Giving and Gratitude.  This is a time of year, as leaves vividly change and then softly fall from their branches from the cold, that we find time to gather with loved ones, to have gratitude for the variety of 'lights' in our lives and to be grateful for where we presently are.  Gratitude though, is something a bit more than just appreciation.  It carries with it, a want to in some way 'return' the kindnesses we've received through our own actions or abilities.  So as you enjoy time with those you care about and seek to stay warm as days & nights continue to grow colder and darker earlier, see if there might be opportunities to use that as a fuel, to provide some warmth and light around you - to do good.      
Things to look forward to this fall...and that season that comes after:

Speaking of doing good...

We'll have 3 classs this Thanksgiving

Giving Tree & RefugeeOne:
On Thanksgiving look for the Giving Tree to return as well.  Every year we partner with RefugeeOne; a local, Chicago non-profit, that works with global refugees who have resettled here in the Chicagoland area. Take a tag off the tree, help a family in need. The tree pops up ON Thanksgiving and stays up through the start of 2019. (More details about that will follow.)

Saturday, December 8th

During this two-hour session, you will spend time practicing a mix of Yin and Restorative poses (asanas).   The complementary nature of these two styles of yoga will help you to create a deep sense of balance within.  Both practices move slowly and will focus on only a few poses throughout the session.  When we slow down physically, we have more time to devote to our internal world.  These practices assist in focusing on the breath and remaining in the present moment.
Yin Yoga increases flexibility by working deep into connective tissues of ligaments, joints and fascial networks.  You will feel a deep stretch as you remain passive in each asana. 

Restorative Yoga is also a passive form of yoga that utilizes props to place you in a comfortable, resting position.  You will have an opportunity to let-go and restore as you rest in each pose.
Most poses will last between 5-8 minutes and will be conducted on the floor.  This practice is suitable for all levels.
