Restorative Yoga : Yamas and Niyamas
The Yoga Yamas and Niyamas are the foundation of Yoga – they are ancient yoga philosophies and suggestions for living a better life through yoga.
In these two restorative yoga classes, we will relax the body through a series of soothing, supported poses and weave the Yamas and Niyamas philosophies into our poses. Experiencing these concepts during our yoga practice helps to build awareness of intentionally taking our yoga off the mat and into our daily lives.

Restorative Yoga is a meditative practice designed to relax the body, calm the nerves and still the mind. These classes feature soothing, quieting, supported poses to release tension and increase circulation of blood to key organs to help reduce the effects of stress. Restorative yoga can aid digestion, help to balance the endocrine system and boost the immune system. When we take the time to relax and release tension through restorative yoga poses, our bodies are receptive to healing on a deeper level.
