Type of Event
A restorative practice is often seen as similar to yin, but utilizes props such as blocks, blankets, bolsters and straps to support the body in each pose. Each posture can be held anywhere from 2-10 minutes. During these long holds, your muscles relax deeply, while the props provide the body with the necessary support to allow space for the tissues to safely lengthen. As we let ourselves slow down we are able to bring more awareness to our breath and practice the healing techniques of pranayama. Pran translates to “life force” while ayama is “distribution.” With the “life force” being our breath, we will discover different breathing techniques that distribute, circulate, and center energy through our bodies and minds. Restorative yoga is very mellow, making it a good complement to more active practices and an excellent antidote to stress. Yogi’s of all levels are encouraged to attend and will leave feeling well-rested and rejuvenated.
