Type of Event
Restorative Yoga is a practice that is inclusive for all audiences, injuries, abilities, and ages. It allows you to be on the floor and fully supported by props such as blankets, bolsters, cushions, straps, walls, and chairs. Each supported posture is held for 5 to 10 minutes with the expectation that you are in complete comfort. Any discomfort is addressed by adjusting the support of your props or even switching to another shape entirely. Restorative Yoga is a practice known to help flexibility, relax the body, still the mind, and improve the capacity for healing. Additionally, it can help balance the nervous and immune systems.
The Tibetan Singing Bowl's produce harmonization and tones that transmit soothing and peaceful vibrations known to have healing qualities. They can potentially balance the chakras and relax your body on a deeper level. With deeper relaxation, you'll find your sympathetic nervous system, or stress response, can take a much needed break. With the parasympathetic nervous system, or the relaxation response, in charge, you'll have the opportunity for both physical and mental recovery.
Why use these two practices together? Both practices support the relaxation response, so together they act as a double dose of parasympathetic elixir. When this elixir know as Ojas runs low, we run the risk of depletion in all of our systems.
This workshop will start with Restorative Yoga and finish with Sound Bowl Meditation. Wear comfortable clothing.
