$25.00 Restorative Yoga Workshop 90 minutes
Restorative yoga is about finding stillness – one of the most transformational tools for our wellbeing. The practice cultivates the skill of relaxation and reconnects us with our natural state so we can thrive physically and emotionally.
We will begin with gentle movement in order to create space in the body to activate your energies so you feel supported and grounded. You will then be guided through simple prop setups for long-held supported poses, encouraging a deep listening, and in turn a deep release of habitual patterns of tension in the body.
In addition, Energy Medicine Yoga® techniques will be introduced to balance the energies that govern the immune, endocrine and autonomic nervous system, such as simple acupressure and neurovascular holds.
The grounding of these poses along with expansive, intentional breathing initiates a neurological response in the body, creating calmness and transformation.
Workshops are not eligible for any discounts.
