“The human body is a temple. Keep it strong and supple. Treat it gently.” ~Swami Satchidananda
Restorative Yoga is a simple, effective antidote to stress, tension and anxiety. In this practice, the body is placed in gentle, supported asanas or poses. These poses literally hold and maintain the physical body while the mind lets go of stress, worry and tension. Since the poses are supported by props, they can be held effortlessly for an extended period of time. This results in a state of deep relaxation, where the innate intelligence of the body balances and reintegrates the entire system to its natural state. When the body is easeful and the mind becomes calm, one can experience the Peace within.
Restorative Yoga uses props such as bolsters, blankets, and pillows, whatever is effective, to support the practitioner in the various postures. These supported poses enable one to receive the benefit of the asana without exerting muscular effort. A simple, restorative pose is very effective when one is feeling fatigued or stressed in daily life. The supported poses are also beneficial during times of major life changes, crises or when recovering from an illness or injury.
The practice of Restorative Yoga takes one’s awareness deep within creating a meditative state enhancing rejuvenation and healing.
In this workshop you will experience:
- Balanced sequences of Restorative Yoga Poses
- Restorative Poses for stress management, relaxation and rejuvenation
- Restorative Poses which enhance the breathing capacity
- Simple Restorative Poses for everyday practice
- Other healing aspects of Restorative Yoga
All props will be supplied for your use during the workshop. This program is open to students of all levels and styles of yoga practice. Individual assistance and guidance will be offered to all participants.
