Aqua Chi Yoga with Susi Siebert-Heddy Wednesdays, 10:30-11:30am Thursdays, 5:30-6:30pm

This class meets at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn Willow Stream Spa (100 Boyes Blvd, Sonoma)  Movement and postures are sequenced to enjoy benefits of being "warmed to the bone” in the body temperature Watsu pool. Raja Yoga inspired meditative and mindfulness practices are a strong theme. Speaking of strong, don't let the gentle, soothing and weightless feel make you think your body is not working. Floating and playing with noodles in high content magnesium water gives the impression of complete ease. Yet your abs (and other muscles) engage while you’re playfully relaxing. Your spine will indulge in relieving traction. Your nervous system will be going to "vagus." Asana (postures) and Tai Chi'ish movements are gentle and may include amplifying options. The entire body responds in gratitude to this practice. SAVASANA is our peak pose, practicing detachment in a heavenly float with or without noodles, with or without getting ears/hair wet.  If you’re a dunker, you may choose the option of listening to underwater music and mystical sea life calls. You are left to float your Savasana for a bit after class. The authentic mineral rich geothermal 1,100 ft. deep spring waters leech toxins from your body. Drinking lots of water afterwards is recommended to rehydrate and helps maximize cleansing effects.
