Restorative Yoga + Craniosacral Work

Sunday, November 24th, 2019


at The Green Yogi
1642 Martin Luther King Jr Way, Berkeley, CA

“”Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.”

— Chinese Proverb

Are you feeling overworked, drained or sensitive to the world? Are you curious about developing your awareness of the subtle body and connecting to your inner intelligence? Do you need some love and kindness via a healing and skillful touch?

Join Kari Jacobsen and Michelle Cordero for a deeply relaxing and restorative afternoon. Class features a simple Yin and Restorative yoga practice, during which Kari and Michelle will offer nurturing hands-on work inspired by trainings in Craniosacral Therapy. Feel first-hand the power of more quiet practices of yoga. Kari will guide you through a series of long stays in yin and restorative poses. As you learn to relax the body into the moment, through support from props and mindful awareness to sensation, the mind becomes more attentive to the body. Beneath the typical thought patterns and through the body’s language of sensation lives our inner wisdom… a place that knows what’s right for you and how to live healthily. In this practice Kari and Michelle will spend quality time working with each student in gentle touch that encourages the body into progressive relaxation.

Class limited to a small group to maximize hands-on attention to each student. All levels welcome, no matter your flexibility, fitness level or experience.

Price: Early Bird $50; $55 week of

Come experience fluid feminine movement for yourself.  Yes, there are poles in the room and you will learn some pole tricks and moves.  You will also create a whole new relationship with your body and her movement. You’ll get a great workout that is also fun and sexy!

Every class will offer a new lesson featuring the S Factor curriculum and philosophy.  We will play on the poles and learn a beginner dance routine as well as other movements and exercises designed to offer you many different ways to access your wild, raw, sensual, soulful, blissed out, and strong parts of you.

Class is appropriate for all women regardless age, shape, size, dance experience or fitness level – as long as you can get down on the floor and move comfortably from a seated position to all fours.

I have been an S woman for over ten years!  I started as a student in 2007, and recently became a Licensed S Factor Instructor.

Stay tuned for upcoming S Factor classes!
