Restorative Yoga gifts you time and space to completely relax.
These sessions explore different positions from light twists to forward folds and gentle backbends; all of which emphasize that resting is a practice in itself. Soften into the support of various props; bolsters, straps, blocks and eye pillows. These props fill the space outside, in between your body and the earth, so you can discover the space within. While you are supported for long periods of time in each position, your muscles relax and you move into the parasympathetic nervous system. By slowing down you enhance your capacity to heal.
Close with a long somatic relaxation or Yoga Nidra (up to 30 minutes), which helps you access embodied self-awareness.
Each month there will be a different theme that responds to the cycles of the seasons. Essential oils, singing bowls, mudras, myofascial release techniques, meditations and mantras may also be offered to enhance these different themes.
