Inner Abundance: A restorative practice + acupuncture to celebrate the shift toward our inner light

  • Namaste on Williams 4201 North Williams Avenue Portland, OR, 97217 United States (map)

Enjoy this special two-hour class that combines restorative yoga and acupuncture with Alesha Hanson (E – RYT) and Jen Ward (LAc). The complementary nature of yoga and acupuncture is reflected in their common goal of balance and healing. A synergistic effect occurs when yoga and acupuncture come together to increase circulation, improve breath, energy, vitality, sleep, release stress and connect mind body spirit.

After a summer full of joyful light and activity the Autumn Equinox is a time to give thanks for all the abundance in our lives and acknowledge our blessings. As we observe in nature, Fall is the season to slow down, surrender and let go in order to conserve energy. Because we are a part of nature too, we take this time to honor these same tendencies within ourselves. Hear this invitation to turn to the light within and cultivate blissful regenerative practices like rest and meditation.

A restorative yoga practice creates the space to relax into deeply in supported postures for long stretches of time. Nothing to do, nowhere to go, just pure surrender to nurture the “rest and digest” nervous system and simply be.

Acupuncture is well known for it's ability to lower stress and restore balance and energy. The benefits of acupuncture can extend to a wide variety of conditions with the most common being stress reduction. Many patients commonly report a greater sense of lightness and evenness to their moods and better able to deal with life stresses after having acupuncture.

Alesha and Jen combine restorative yoga with acupuncture in a safe, calm environment and provide take home materials for continued self care practices. This workshop is great for people wanting to experience the healing power of acupuncture for the first time.
