90 Minute Restorative Yoga & Acupuncture Classes

Restorative Yoga & Acupuncture Classes
Restorative Yoga & Acupuncture with Jessica & Dr. Shanna Hudgin of the North Yarmouth Zhen Center

Please join Dr. Shanna Hudgin of the Zhen Center in North Yarmouth and Jessica Petrie for a special 90 minute Restorative Yoga and Acupuncture class. During this class Jessica guides students into Restorative yoga poses. In each pose Dr. Hudgin places acupuncture needles in key release points; for example, the forehead, wrists, feet and ears. The postures and needle placements in this class will be held for 10 to 15 minutes each. Acupuncture works with the nervous system by promoting balance in the body to relieve pain, relax muscles, and reduce stress and anxiety. The benefit of performing yoga while getting acupuncture is that it strengthens the mind-body connection and deepens relaxation. There are eight spots open in the studio for this special healing class and the cost is $60 per student.

BLOG & INTERVIEW: At the end of September 2020 I was interviewed by Soutiens about how working, home-schooling parents can find time to fit yoga and self care into their routines.
