Yoga at Float SNJ
The beginnings of Yoga were developed by the Indus-Sarasvati civilization in Northern India over 5,000 years ago. The word yoga was first mentioned in the oldest sacred texts, the Rig Veda. The Vedas were a collection of texts containing songs, mantras and rituals to be used by Brahmans, the Vedic priests.
The practice of Yoga is an amazing compliment to floating. Yoga stretches and strengthens the body and mind, and prefacing a float with yoga practice truly prepares the body and mind to let go fully during the float. When we realized what a fantastic compliment these two experiences are, we decided to create an intimate and comfortable space where people can come and have a relaxing, meaningful practice.
MEET OUR INSTRUCTORS
Roxanne had practiced yoga on and off for 6 years at home. After taking a few classes with an old friend, she discovered the type of healing that stretched beyond the purely physical. She quickly knew she wanted to provide this type of healing as well as to receive it. In 2014, an injury caused her to leave the dental hygiene profession and instead, build a business focusing on ways to heal the mind and body. She's a Reiki practitioner, a certified hypnotist, and yoga instructor. She is now passionate about helping those in trauma or recovery with these experiences. You will find her teaching trauma sensitive classes, restorative yoga infused with Reiki, or leading a workshop for Past Life Regression or Stress relief. You may also find her participating on a mat next to you as she stays true to her own practice. Besides yoga her favorite place to be is traveling with her husband or at home with her sons, daughter and pitbull boxer Abby!
