Full Description

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga is a great practice to rejuvenate your entire system and heal.
By using props to hold the postures longer and support the body our nervous system has time to recalibrate and allow the parasympathetic nervous system to turn on. We can turn off the unconscious fight or flight state that leads to chronic stress. Instead we can consciously choose to practice a mindful softening into life and into who we are by being present. Restorative poses help the body find homeostasis and when the body is balanced it can start to heal itself.

According to nurse, April Reiersen, “Chronic stress triggers inflammatory responses, and increased inflammation plays a central role in many disease. Studies have shown that relaxation therapies promote a decrease in inflammatory signaling in stressful situations. When the body is allowed to rest we see a physiologic response that promotes the health and healing of the body.” From an article on the Daily Beast about Restorative Yoga.

Yoga Nidra:

Yoga Nidra is known as yogic sleep or sleeping with awareness. It is an ancient Tantric meditation technique that is intended to induce full-body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness. As noted by Yogarupa Rod Stryker, "We live in a chronically exhausted, over stimulated world, and yoga Nidra is a systematic method of complete relaxation, holistically addressing our physiological, neurological, and subconscious needs." The benefits of Yoga Nidra Meditation Technique:

* Improves quality of sleep & provides deep relaxation
* Improves work efficiency & enthusiasm
* Lowers blood pressure & slows breathing rate
* Effective in stress management, addictions, migraines, digestive disorders and depression.
