Total Relaxation with Restorative Yoga
About This Event
Restorative Yoga is a simple, effective antidote to relieve stress, tension, and anxiety. In this practice, your body is placed in gentle, supported asanas (poses) with the use of props, allowing a release of physical and mental tensions.
Join us for a Restorative Yoga workshop to relax and rejuvenate. When your body is at rest and your mind becomes calm, you can experience the peace within.
This workshop offers:
Balanced sequences of Restorative Yoga Poses
Complete instruction in gentle restorative poses
Yoga practices for stress management, relaxation, and rejuvenation
Gentle poses that enhance the breathing capacity
Simple poses for everyday practice
Healing aspects of Restorative Yoga
Since the poses are supported by props, they can be held effortlessly for an extended period of time. This results in a state of deep relaxation, where the innate intelligence of the body becomes balanced and the entire system returns to its natural state. The supported poses are also beneficial during times of major life changes, crises, or when recovering from an illness or injury.
All props will be supplied. This program is open to students of all levels and styles of Yoga. Individual assistance will be available.
