RESTORATIVE YOGA – Sunday @6:00pm (monthly class)
Practicing restorative yoga provides an opportunity to step out of the ‘doing’, into the ‘ being’ and slow everything right down. When your life is racing full-speed ahead, so is your mind. Combined with meditation, this practice helps create mental spaciousness, stillness and time for self-reflection. The props assist in helping you to hold poses longer. Restorative yoga is about the centering of your breath and body – aligning the physical and mental by practicing stillness or gentle movement for extended periods of time. Long, supported poses help your body to fully engage, soften, and allow the precise positioning to work its magic.
Restorative yoga has a soothing effect on the nervous system and by reducing “fight or flight” response it brings you into a state that allows for renewal and rejuvenation. Restorative yoga provides a bridge between familiar poses and, to many, the unfamiliar practice of meditation. Calming your mind not only reduces stress and anxiety, but also boosts your immune function, decreases inflammation, and increases positive emotions. After the practice you will indulge your senses with delicious and healthy vegan treat.
I am looking forward to welcome you and guide you through this gentle yet powerful practice.
Suitable for complete beginners.
