Have you ever wanted to stay longer in savasana? This class journeys deep into supported postures with pranayama techniques and meditation. Restorative yoga is a delicious surrender into quiet, soothing postures that incorporate bolsters & blankets.
With the support of props, students can achieve poses without muscular strength, facilitating release & relaxation that will calm the nervous system and coax away built-up tension. A slow-moving yoga practice helps relieve the effects of chronic stress, and each restorative sequence is designed to move the spine in every direction to lubricate it and promote a healthy back. Enjoy nurturing hands-on assists that move you towards a peaceful replenishment of body & spirit.
Restorative yoga is a wonderful complement to any level of practice and is an excellent place for new students to begin. All levels welcome.
Yin yoga is a deep practice that targets the connective tissues, such as ligaments, which are not exercised in the more active flow of asana. Long-held postures can even target bones & joints, strengthening the body’s foundation. Yin yoga helps students to not only open the body, but also to cultivate a meditative component of practice. Classes focus on passive stretching combined with breath work, Chinese meridian theory, and yoga philosophy.
“Yin Yoga is not meant to be comfortable; it will take you well outside your comfort zone. Much of the benefit of the practice will come from staying in this zone of discomfort, despite the mind’s urgent pleas to leave,” explains Bernie Clark, yoga teacher & creator of YinYoga.com. It is a natural complement to more dynamic (yang) practices such as Vinyasa & Forrest.
All levels welcome.
