Restorative Yoga Drop-In Session: First Sunday of every month
DEEPLY RELAXING AND REMEDIAL: SLOW DOWN, UNWIND, LET GO
While for some a power yoga class may seem like the way to go, for others a gentle restorative class may be optimal.
Restorative Yoga focuses on relaxing the body in restful postures with the aid of props. Note that ‘rest’ is different from sleep. Rest gives the body an opportunity to renew and heal. Countless studies have proven the physical and emotional benefits of this.
The poses in this class are all passive and supported by belts, bricks and bolsters to provide maximum comfort for all body parts to rest and let go of tension. Each pose requires around 5-10 minutes hold time for the body to open and to allow the whole person to have a sense of settling into the pose.
Asanas that fall into the special category of restorative poses have a particular ability to leave us nourished and well rested. A class such as this would suit people with a stressful lifestyle who may be on the go all the time, people who may find it hard to relax or to ‘switch off’ and also people who are suffering from illness or injury.
‘Wise letting go is not a detached removal from life. It is the heart’s embrace of life itself, a willing opening to the full reality of the present’ (‘After the Ecstasy, the Laundry’ by Jack Kornfield)
