The World of Work Inventory (WOWi) is a comprehensive career assessment instrument, which has been carefully constructed to help a person learn the most about him or herself in relation to the wide variety of occupations available. The WOWi provides a personalized profile for each person. As a result, you will receive a listing of occupations most suitable to your unique combination of personality, interests and skills.

1 additional session on Jun 4, 2022

In this class, you will experience 40 minutes of gentle asanas & holding acpoints and 20 minutes of deep, restful relaxation. 

YIN-Yoga- Nidra reduces pain. This unique class focuses on unwinding tension in the body & mind. Yin Yoga is about stretching and applying gentle pressure to certain tissues. Longer held postures support your body in deep rest that restores balance & stimulates deep healing. This class allows time for muscles to relax, joints to open & fascia to release long held tensions. In addition, we hold acupoints to bring balance & ease of flow to mind/body.

Yoga Nidra literally means “yogic sleep”. This ancient technique uses guided meditations to bring you into deep states of conscious relaxation. Yoga Nidra is an effective method for relieving stress & easing anxiety. It is a systematic practice of moving awareness from our external world to the inner world; allowing the body & mind to restore, rest & heal deeply. Yoga Nidra is done lying down in stillness while Mary guides you into bliss.

Wear comfortable clothing & bring your pillows, eye pillow, mat & blanket for a restorative experience you will delight in - all in the comfort of your home. You will be sent a ZOOM link to attend virtually.
