 Restorative Yoga + Meditation

with Carly Smith

Fall Dates Coming Soon

Holistic Salt Therapy + Cave, Uxbridge

Not only will you receive all the wonderful benefits of restorative yoga + meditation, you will also receive the most amazing physical and mental benefits of the Holistic Salt Therapy and Cave.

Salt Caves have many healing properties and energies. The negative ions that are present in the room help to naturally draw out toxins and bacteria’s from our body. It can help to alleviate many different ailments such as reducing inflammation, clearing our airways and helping to eliminate bacteria in our sinuses and lungs. It can also help to lower stress, regulate our nervous system and so much more. I’ve said it plenty before, but I’ll continue to say it again and again, as it is definitely one of my favourites - it gives you break from the external world and all the stimuli that comes along with it.

Registration is per class. Space is LIMITED.
