Yogis Strive for Full Body Delight
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- DC Ranch Village Health Club & Spa has a twist on eating chocolate, literally. The latest yoga class, 'Chocolate-Covered Yoga' teaches yogis how not only to calm the mind and exercise the body, but also how to heighten the senses, and experience sensations on a deeper level, such as more satisfying chocolate eating.
The class is a very fulfilling yoga class, physically, emotionally and spiritually through the use of three different elements; 1) chocolate tasting in which chocolate relates to different parts of the body and helps achieve a more sensual experience, 2) certain quotes the instructor will read during the class help yogis focus on their emotions, and of course 3) the asanas, or poses the class will do which provides the physical aspect of the class. In addition, the class' music will coordinate and relate to different parts of the body. Some of the chocolate that relates to different parts of the body are; chocolate with a hint of chili works the solar plexes and creates fire within the body; and chocolate with a hint of bacon focuses on the body's foundation.
"When your mind is very focused and calm, such as it is in a yoga class, your senses are actually heightened, you experience things differently, such as when eating chocolate," says Gloria Allen, certified yoga instructor at DC Ranch Village Health Club & Spa. "Chocolate-Covered Yoga is a really fun way to enjoy a different type of yoga class and see how centering, focusing and breathing changes things in your body."
Chocolate-Covered Yoga is available at DC Ranch Village Health Club & Spa on Friday, February 8th from 5:30 to 7:30 for members and their guests. Guest passes for nonmembers can be obtained by calling the Membership Office at 480.502.8844 or visiting the Web site at http://www.villageclubs.com, and click on Membership.
