Restorative Yoga is a meditative approach to yoga which is calming to the mind and body, which helps in balancing out our active lives. The benefits are many! People who practice regularly have lower stress levels, better mood and better sleep!
In this workshop you'll learn the mind/body principles behind Restorative Yoga and how to safely use props gentle in reclined poses to help your body release fully into each pose. We'll use blankets, blocks, cushions, and bolsters to allow your body to find comfort in each position and follow along with guided meditation practices to help the mind to learn to let go of thoughts and return to the moment.
We'll gently stretch and release tension from the muscles and connective tissue that surrounds the joints, increasing its elasticity, which is highly beneficial for injury prevention and joint health. Because we hold several postures for longer periods, Restorative Yoga also restores energy, stimulates the immune system, and calms the nervous system, leaving you refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed.
