with Satya Greenstone, E-RYT 500
Restorative Yoga is a simple, effective antidote to stress, tension, and anxiety.
In this practice, the body is placed in gentle, supported asanas (poses) with the use of props. These poses literally hold and maintain the physical body, while the mind lets go of stress, worry, and tension. When the body is easeful and the mind becomes calm, one can experience the Peace within.
This workshop offers complete instruction in gentle restorative poses, as well as:
- Balanced sequences of Restorative Yoga Poses
- Other practices for stress management, relaxation, and rejuvenation
- Gentle poses which enhance the breathing capacity
- Simple poses for everyday practice
- Other healing aspects of Restorative Yoga
All props will be supplied. This program is open to students of all levels and styles of Yoga. Individual assistance will be available.
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.
The restorative poses are beneficial during times of major life changes, crises or when recovering from an illness or injury. The poses can be incorporated into daily life for physical relaxation, stress reduction, and peace of mind. This weekend workshop is for your personal practice, relaxation, and rejuvenation.
