Wood Street Fitness to host ‘Ladies Night Mini Yoga Retreat’ Feb. 24

Two-hour yoga retreat includes two types of yoga


Bensenville, Ill.—According to the rhythm and blues band Kool and the Gang, “It’s Ladies’ Night and the feeling’s right.” Wood Street Fitness is promising its two-hour ‘Ladies Night Mini Yoga Retreat’ will have participants feeling right. The special event runs 6-8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24, at the Deer Grove Leisure Center (DGLC), 1000 W. Wood Street, Bensenville.

“Participants will leave feeling better in their body, calmer in the mind and more connected in life,” says Fitness Supervisor Silvia Acevedo.

The evening begins with gentle stretching and pranayama (breath work), followed by a guided self-facelifting massage and lymphatic drainage using essential oils. After a short break with a healthy, organic snack and infused water, they will enjoy a restorative Hatha Yoga practice, suitable for all levels. The program concludes with a fully relaxing yoga Nidra session.

Hatha yoga is a traditional category of yoga that is based on practices that balance mental and physical health through breath and movement and it’s designed to leave participants feeling calm and balanced both inside and out.

Yoga Nidra could be described as “yogic sleep”. Participants lie on their backs as the instructor leads them through a guided meditation about their body meant to bring deep relaxation for the body as well as the mind.

The ‘Ladies Night Mini Yoga Retreat’ is open to females aged 18 and over, and enrollment is limited to 20 people to fit comfortably in the DGLC’s Exercise Room. Register by Monday, Feb. 20, at the DGLC, or call 630-766-7015. The fee is $25, but those living within Bensenville Park District boundaries receive a $2 discount ($23 in-district rate).
