Yoga postures and stretches ideal for those looking at yoga more as physical therapy. We will focus on those 'asanas' that help rehabilitate injuries and other chronic pain.
This Spring come take care of yourself Sunday evenings by melting into a restorative yoga class that is aimed to relax, release and restore.
Restorative yoga is a form of yoga that seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props. The use of props makes it easier for you to hold poses longer while you are stimulating and relaxing your body. It gently reminds your nervous system to relax, your adrenals to restore, organs to be nurtured and connective tissues to release.
Other benefits associated with restorative yoga include: slower heart rate, improved circulation, lower blood pressure and reduced muscle tension.
This class is ideal for participants of all levels. Physical limitations are not a concern.
$15 per class. $45 for all 4 classes
Pay with cash or check.
