Full Description

Do you want to learn how to do 'nothing' and do it well?
Then join me for this therapeutic and rejuvenating Restorative Yoga Workshop!
Living in such a busy society, many of us need to learn how to truly relax- one of several, basic, human states of being. During this Restorative Yoga Workshop, you will learn to fully support the body with props like blankets & bolsters in an aligned asana (pose),resting there for an extended period of time, allowing your muscles to fully release. I will assist you in each pose, performing adjustments and applying essential oils to enhance your experience.
Why Restorative Yoga?
When the human body is truly relaxed, many crucial functions occur: the sympathetic nervous system (fight-or-flight response defenses) slows, as the parasympathetic nervous system takes over. This slows your heart rate, lowering blood pressure, while it improves your digestion, promotes vital organ functions, & stimulates the immune system. Additionally, it stimulates cell growth & rehabilitation, & helps to alleviate stress, insomnia, & fatigue.
When your muscles fully let go, especially those in injured ares that are straining due to compensation, the skeleton can realign. Therefore, the skeleton can hold the body as designed, relieving strained muscles.
As you can see, the benefits are endless.
The combination of self-healing that occurs during deep relaxation is a delightful experience.
Come. Learn to relax! Learn to let go!
