The Role of Restoration Yoga as a Healing Practice

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Restorative Yoga may seem to be intimidating at first. How to place the supports, the blocks, the straps.....? Relax- this is the key word in restoration, Relaxation. In this session, learn what makes this practice more than just relaxing, but a true state of Surrender. Most people spend a great deal of the waking, conscious day (and truthfully, their slumbering unconscious night!) in dealing with stress. For many folks, the very act of lying back and being still is even in itself a massive shift in allowing. Minds are busy filling in the gaps of what I woulda, coulda, shoulda have done. Or endlessly loop around the what I must do next. This process creates a mental crazy train that is deftly crippling otherwise normal, healthy people. Teaching them what slowing down even means, is a challenge! Add to this, the amount of toll that is placed upon the human body through overindulgences- whether this be too much sitting at a computer, or too much spinning in the gym. Our bodies find healing in the place between such states. The beauty of Restoration yoga, is that even people with no prior yoga experience, or who are in recovery from addictions and trauma, can find deep psychological support and healing in profound ways. In fact, the vulnerability that can be exposed and then lovingly supported is beautiful. Come experience for yourself why this gentle practice is so dearly needed in a time of accelerated change.
