The focus of these sessions are not on stretching but on opening the body by releasing tension. Each pose is generously supported with props and held for long periods of time without any effort. it is by coming into a restful state that the magic happens.
Restorative yoga facilitates the recalibration of our nervous systems. It shifts us from a dull but constant state of stress (our sympathetic or fight/flight/freeze response) towards a more healing & integrative state (our parasympathetic or rest & digest response). This is ideal for processing & releasing the stress of modern life.
Restorative yoga is particularly beneficial for people with stress chronic pain fatigue digestive issues poor immune function and even those recovering from a severe injury or anxiety disorders.
For this class you will need a bolster cushions blankets blocks… anything that will make you very comfortable while holding the positions.
