New Class Restorative Special
- 1 hr1 hour
- Location 1
Join a small group of like minded people. Learn how to truly rest. This class offers a blend of restorative poses, deep listening to your body, myofacial release, somatic movement, breath work and meditation to soothe your nervous system. Because restorative yoga offers long held, supported postures you create the conditions in which you can cultivate the skill of conscious relaxation. Over time you begin to release habitual tension which is held in the body and the mind. The practice offers you the chance to work out ‘how to let go of unnecessary tension, how to relax the mind, how to do less’. Most often the effort involved in restorative yoga is the willingness to look at how and where you are holding tension, to rest your body to the ground, to allow your breath to move with greater ease. You get the chance to discover what your habits are around how you hold your body, move your body, how your mental/emotional habits play out in your physical body. Once you discover your habits you can do something about changing them. Through the practice of grounding, through the awareness of yielding you call the breath. The practice of yielding (giving your weight to the earth) precedes full respiration, so without yielding you will not have full respiration. Through more balanced and full respiration, you calm and soothe your nervous system, you feel safe, you feel supported, you feel connected. Through these practices of Restorative Yoga, you sleep more fully, your digestive system functions more optimally, your organs, glands and systems function more optimally. By resting fully, you activate the body’s natural relaxation response and move into self-healing and self-regulating. Restorative yoga offers you the gift of time, a chance to slow down and do less, a chance to welcome the parts of you that have been forgotten along the way to come back into wholeness. Through these practices you begin to befriend yourself, to do less rather than more, to be more kind to yourself on all levels, you begin to trust yourself wholeheartedly and become your own best guru.
