Restorative Yoga - 12 August
Time & Location
About The Event
This monthly restorative class will focus on rest and rejuvenation.
Each hour session will focus on one or more of the following practices...
Restorative Yoga - In restorative yoga postures the body is held, not stretched, but supported with bolsters and cushions to ease into relaxation; helping the body to naturally respond to a state of restfulness. You will be shown how to place the bolsters and cushions to support the body. Once supported we may use yogic breathing to calm our busy minds.
Somatic Yoga - An exploration of mindful movements to release habitual patterns that may be held as tension, stress, fatigue or trauma in the body. This embodied awareness practice invites you to explore movement within our body's physical and emotional boundaries through reaching, pulsing, stretching helping to build strength in joints and elasticity in tissues. Somatics sees the body and its multiple systems as a whole; through the fascia (connective tissues), respiratory, energetic, emotional, digestive, nervous and hormonal systems.
Yoga Nidra & Relaxation - Guided relaxation to deeply rest the body. Yoga Nidra means deep yogic sleep; it's like a guided meditation while you remain in a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping. Your brainwave activity relaxes; slowing down into alpha waves to promote deeper relaxation. Using Sankalpa, affirming a short positive statement which fosters that which we would like to cultivate in ourselves to benefit our lives and the lives of others.
You will need a yoga mat and blanket, an eye pillow if you have one - and for restorative yoga a bolster or pillows. You may like to use cushions to place under your head or behind your knees to support your lower back. Wear comfy clothing and warm socks.
No previous yoga experience is necessary.
