Relax and Rejuvenate with Restorative Yoga
with Chitra Kate McDevitt, RYT 500, C-IAYT
November 24 - 26, 2017
Restorative Yoga is a simple, effective antidote to stress, tension, and anxiety. In this practice, your body is placed in gentle, supported asanas (poses) with the use of props, allowing your mind to truly let go.
Join us for a Restorative Yoga workshop to relax and rejuvenate. When your body is at rest and your mind becomes calm, you can experience the peace within.
This workshop offers complete instruction in gentle restorative poses, as well as:
- Balanced Restorative Yoga sequences
- Yoga practices for stress management, relaxation, and rejuvenation
- Gentle poses that 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, where the innate intelligence of the body balances and reintegrates the entire system to its natural state. The supported poses are also beneficial during times of major life changes, crises, or when recovering from an illness or injury.
