This workshop is slow and mellow with long, comfortable holds focusing on reducing stress through restful rejuvenation and gentle relaxation. As you are guided into the restorative pose, you will receive gentle nurturing touch to aid in the healing process and align the union of your being into a complete relaxation.
Restorative Yoga is a deeply relaxing practice, often referred to as the “yoga of surrender.” Restorative Yoga differs from free-standing yoga poses, which are held in proper alignment by muscular action. In these modifications of classical poses, the muscles remain quiet; the shape and alignment of the pose is determined by props. If relaxation is to be attained, therefore, one must have proper support and alignment. With the use of yoga props, such as belts, blocks, blankets, and bolsters the student is able to relax into yoga postures using little, if any, muscular effort. This enables the student to hold poses for a greater length of time facilitating deep release and transforming the effects of stress. As the body relaxes in restful postures it is provided an opportunity to renew and heal. Restorative yoga helps to soothe the nervous system and calm and focus the mind and body. All levels welcome!
