Join Frank and Andrea for an afternoon of relaxation and renewal supported by acupuncture-enhanced restorative poses. You will be guided through a very slow, deeply therapeutic two-hour restorative yoga practice, during which you will receive two separate needling sessions. As you rest comfortably, needles will be inserted to gently access and move qi (life force or vital energy). The intention is to facilitate a deeper level of relaxation and provide a soft boost to encourage self-healing and restoration of personal balance. A community acupuncture model will be followed, and approximately 5-8 points will be selected from potential locations along the acupuncture meridians: arms/hands, legs/feet, face, or scalp.
To balance the dominant energies of late summer, fire (heart) and earth (spleen/stomach), this workshop will focus on heart opening and grounding poses and acupuncture protocols. Other benefits include stress reduction, physiological restoration and emotional balancing.
Open to all levels of practitioners. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early. You’ll be asked to sign a consent form and get settled in with props, etc. Wear loose, comfortable clothing that can be moved to the level of the elbow and knee if needed.
Dr. Frank Muscara, LAc, DACM and Andrea Lodico

From bone density to hair growth, appetite to heart rate, mood to behavior; hormones affect every function of our body. And through the many seasons of our life we will experience a myriad of hormonal variations. They change constantly. So learning about these changes and how we can best support our bodies functioning through movement and relaxation is the key to longevity, peace and happiness.
Our workshop will be part lecture and practice. We will begin with a Lecture/Discussion where we will:
• Learn about the main cause of hormonal imbalance and estrogen dominance in our daily lives
• Map the female monthly cycle through the various hormonal proportions
• Breakdown the relationship between the Central Nervous System and our Hormone Production
• Get a taste of practical applications of yoga for our daily life
A Guided Restorative postures and Yoga Nidra will follow the 50min discussion for deep relaxation, allowing the body to recover and rebalance.
This workshop is all yogis in and their levels and stages. It is appropriate for men, women, young and the wise.Sign Up!
