DEEPLY RELAXING AND REMEDIAL
While for some a power yoga class may seem like the way to go, for others a gentle restorative class may be optimal.
Restorative Yoga focuses on relaxing the body in restful postures with the aid of props. Note that ‘rest’ is different from sleep. Rest gives the body an opportunity to renew and heal. Countless studies have proven the physical and emotional benefits of this. The workshop contains long peaceful pauses of delicious silence and beautiful phases of gentle atmospheric sounds. Poetry and Imagery is also used to evoke the healing powers of the imagination and to connect with nature, the heart and the beautiful things that make us human.
There really is NOTHING quite like properly resting in these, gentle, blissful, delicious and peaceful yoga poses supported by yoga props. With breathing exercises, Yoga Nidra (guided relaxation around body) your stress can naturally recede into the background; spaciousness and calm opens up to you like a sacred sanctuary within to just ‘be’. Also with individual head massage. Everyone’s favourite way to wind down!
