Candlelight Restorative Yoga
Calm the mind and body with this soothing Restorative Yoga class. Restorative yoga poses require no muscular exertion. Easy floor postures are held long enough for the sympathetic nervous system to lower resulting in deep rest. Supported by props – blankets, bolsters, and bolsters and blankets and bolsters! Students leave feeling nourished, well rested and refreshed; with a new cultivated awareness and clarity. Sandy will incorporate Guided Meditation, aromatherapy , gentle grounding touch as well as a few surprises. No yoga or meditation experience is needed.
Past students of our Restorative Yoga sessions experience:
- Peace of mind
- Deeper connection to self
- Clarity in thought and action
- Over all wellness and reduction in pains.
- Improved health and comfort in body
Each posture provides a floating affect and carefully placed positioning of the bodes enhances receptors within that assist in your experience. How is this different than Yin Yoga? Yin Yoga provides deep stretching, Restorative Yoga, nothing is stretching…you receive more by doing less.
