This 90-minute class will begin with a gentle vinyasa sequence and close with a relaxing and nourishing sequence of restoratives. The first portion of the class will offer students a gentle flow to bring awareness into the body and release tension. The second portion of the class will create space for deep relaxation through lengthy holds in restorative asanas.
“Restorative yoga is the use of props to create positions of ease and comfort that facilitate relaxation and health”
- Judith Hanson Lasater
Restorative yoga helps release unnecessary tension in the body and the mind. In this practice, we create conditions for conscious relaxation and practice the art of doing less. Restorative yoga activates the parasympathetic nervous system— our nervous system’s “rest and digest” response. This neurological response promotes healing within the immune, digestive, and reproductive systems. This practice of stillness allows us to care for the whole of ourselves by supporting physical, mental, and emotional well being.
The studio has bolsters, blankets, blocks, and yoga mats to support us during practice
