Zoom Meeting

About The Event

Join Zoreh for a deeply relaxing, passive practice where the body is fully and comfortably supported with props. Each pose is typically held for five to ten minutes so that accumulated stress and tension is gently released. Guided relaxation and breath awareness assist release, so vital organs are deeply nourished and the nervous system can return to equilibrium, facilitating the body's relaxation and self-healing processes and bringing peace and serenity to the mind.

This class will have a specific focus on a different area of the body each week:

  • August 18 – Lower back and pelvis
  • August 25 – Upper back, shoulders and neck
  • September 1– Legs, feet and knees
  • September 8 – Digestive system 
  • September 15– Respiratory system, heart and lungs 
  • September 22– Immune system

Recommended props:

  • 4 or more yoga blankets (or other firm blankets or towels)
  • Yoga bolster (or additional blankets, a couch cushion or firm pillows)
  • 1–2 yoga blocks (or several thick books)
  • Yoga belt

Zoreh Afsarzadeh, founder and director of High Desert Yoga, has been teaching yoga since 1985. Zoreh’s upbringing in Iran started her on the path of Sufism, meditation, and spirituality, and during her lifetime, she has studied numerous methodologies including Iyengar, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, Siddha yoga, and that of the American Yoga College. Zoreh’s joyous personality and sense of humor endear her to her students with a teaching style that is both nurturing and fun, and her teaching combines a delicate knowledge of the body that allows a compassionate authentic expression of the postures to emerge.
