Enjoy the benefits of yoga without feeling like you need a lot of energy to show up. Learning to rest and restore is part of the yoga practice.
Angela Gray teaches a sweet gentle yoga class with half restorative yoga on Tuesday night's at 6:45 pm. Restorative yoga is done with postures lying over an oblong pillow, called a bolster. This is a great practice for someone with a long work day. Class even starts later in the evening so you can walk the dog and eat a little before settling to practice.
#1 leave feeling better than when you came!
Another nice and gentle option is Mondays at 9:30 am with half of the class asana, gentle or restorative poses in the chair or on the floor and the other half of class is yoga nidra, a lying meditation. Each meditation is designed to balance brain waves and the nervous system while developing more body and emotional awareness and mental stability.
This morning's visualization portion of the meditation envisioned the chakras, with a blossoming flower and sound to match. There is beautiful imagery each time, like water, hikes, loving interactions, and sometimes uncomfortable visions like cold or pain beforehand. It is amazing to see the power of your mind. You create your experience. Practice being in control of your mind rather than it controlling you. No one ever said it was easy. That's why they call it practice.
