Restorative yoga is a gentle yet powerful practice. It enables deep relaxation of the mind and body, as we hold poses for longer periods of time, completely supported by props such as blankets and pillows or bolsters.
Restorative yoga is highly effective at opening the body, softening connective tissue, and stretching muscles. It quiets the mind and soothes us physically, calming the sympathetic nervous system (our “fight or flight” instinct) and stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system. It is suitable for all levels, as long as one is comfortable lying or sitting on the floor, and is a wonderful complement for those with a more active yoga or other athletic practice. This class will include meditation and breathwork, and will occasionally incorporate the option to receive hands-on assists and energy healing.
Cost is $12 per class
