Restorative Yoga is a practice that cultivates the art of going inward to deepen your relationship with Self. During restorative yoga the poses that you will experience are not the typical "active" yoga poses. Rather, you will experience 2-3 poses per class where your body is supported with the use of props (like blankets, bolsters, cushions, and eye pillows) in order to calm the central nervous system to invoke deep rest and restoration. When we experience deep rest, it is nourishing for the body, mind and soul allowing us the opportunity to heal, rest and digest. There is nothing else to do in this class, but simply be. Doesn't that sound heavenly?
Mindful Movement & Meditation
In mindful movement and meditation you will explore active asana (poses) while incorporating breath (pranayama) to move energy through the body. This class will help you to stretch and strengthen the body and mind through various "common" yoga postures incorporating movement and stillness. The practice will end with a shorter variation of Yoga Nidra guided meditation. During the meditation portion of this class, you will have the opportunity to go inward and experience deeper levels of rest and relaxation. You can equate this meditation to enjoying a delicious dessert after a meal.
Yoga Nidra Guided Meditation
Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation designed for deep relaxation and introspection. It can be referred to as Yogic sleep. It is a space that we enter right before we fall asleep (when we are neither awake, nor asleep). When we are in this threshold, we can experience creativity, rest, healing and transformation. We can also see and experience things that were previously invisible to us. Being in Yoga Nidra is calming to the central nervous system which gives your body the opportunity to rest, digest and heal.
All you need to do is lie down (or sit comfortably), listen and be guided, or simply be without any expectations at all.
