“Spring drew on … and a greenness grew over those brown beds, which, freshening daily, suggested the thought that Hope traversed them at night and left each morning brighter traces of her steps.” — Charlotte Bronte
Welcome the change of season from Winter to Spring with this soothing workshop that combines restorative yoga and massage. Please join Iris and Darla Friday, March 20th from 7 to 9 p.m. Darla will guide you through the restorative practice. Both Iris, a licensed massage therapist and Reiki practitioner, and Darla will provide hands on touch to reduce muscle tension. Props will be used for support in these longer held postures, with the intention of calming the nervous system and quieting the mind. Essential oils will be used for additional balancing and relaxation. This workshop will be a deeply nourishing and tranquil experience that is the perfect self care activity to honor the Vernal Equinox.

About the instructors: Darla Mosse & Iris McComb
Darla began practicing yoga regularly in 2007 for exercise. It soon became much more than just a physical practice. It became a way of being in the world for her. Darla completed the 200 hour teacher training through 8 Limbs Yoga in 2013 and has been teaching yoga since 2014. She is currently working towards obtaining her 500 hour teacher training certification through 8 Limbs Yoga. The practice Darla teaches is flowing and focuses greatly in connecting breath with movement so that the practice becomes a moving meditation. Also, she believes yoga should be fun and laughter is always welcome. In addition to teaching yoga, Darla is a RN and works with people who have chemical dependency and mental health issues.
With an extensive background in dance and yoga, Iris has always cultivated a keen physical self awareness and is particularly interested in the ways different experiences manifest uniquely in each person’s body. She first became seriously interested in bodywork after experiencing the great emotional release that can occur in tandem with physical release, and her understanding of the connection between mind, body, and spirit has continued to deepen with every massage given and received. Iris graduated from the Northwest Academy of the Healing Arts and is trained in techniques such as deep tissue, Swedish relaxation, trigger point work, myofascial release, prenatal massage, and reiki. She approaches each massage with compassion, intuition, and sensitivity to individual needs, combining both deep and gentle work to usher the body into a state of relaxation where profound release may take place.
