Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. It is a completely different experience than most contemporary yoga. Restorative classes are very mellow, making them a good complement to more active practices and an excellent antidote to stress.
During the long holds of restorative yoga, your muscles are allowed to relax deeply. In restorative yoga, props are used extensively to support your body so you can hold poses for longer periods of time. Postures are usually adapted from supine or seated yoga poses with the addition of blocks, and blankets to eliminate unnecessary straining. As the body rests, muscle tension begins to unravel, stress begins to melt away, and the mind begins to quiet; aiding the natural healing process of our bodies.
Meditation and pranayama (breathwork) are included in each session.
This class is suited for all levels. No experience necessary.
