Full Description

This workshop will provide an ideal opportunity to relax and reduce tension in the body by combining restorative yoga with a range of meditation has been scientifically proven to improve the overall health of the body by helping sleep, reducing pain, boosting the immune system and increasing energy levels. Regular meditation improves focus and concentration in work and daily activities. It helps to relieve stress and balance our emotional and mental states which often become overcharged in today’s environment with it focus on technology and speed. In this workshop we will explore a range of meditation techniques which you can practise anywhere, at any time of the day and can be adapted to how much time you have available. This will include a variety of breathing techniques, guided visualisations and specific meditation practises.

In restorative yoga, postures are passively held with the assistance of props for several minutes to encourage the body to open up and unwind. Once the body is supported, we are able to take the gaze inwards and become more aware of habitual tensions created in our bodies and minds. Restorative yoga with its yin focus cultivates the practise of acceptance and letting go. It is an effortless and gentle practise harnessing healing, inner calm and replenishment.

The class will end with a yoga nidra – “yogi sleep”, a deep state of conscious relaxation, leaving you restored and revitalised.
