This class is appropriate for all students seeking the benefits of a very relaxing and nourishing practice for mind, body, and spirit. Restorative Yoga is a gentle and meditative style of Yoga which requires no muscular exertion; each pose is held for several minutes while deeply supported by props-blankets, bolsters, and blocks. Props will support the body to deepen the benefits of the poses. Candlelight enhances feelings of relaxation and peace which support calming and healing of mind and spirit. This practice will help to uplift mood, release tension, and aid in healing on deeper levels. It is a relaxing and restful practice that creates specific physiological responses that are beneficial to health and can reduce the effects of stress, anxiety, and depression. It is a wonderful adjunct to an active yoga practice. It can also be a great first class for a beginner or for those recovering from injury or illness.
