Relax + Restore: 3hr Restorative Workshop
Time & Location
About The Event
In this extended practice of slowing down, together we will intentionally plug into the wisdom of deep consciousness and restore the mind-body connection.
Restorative yoga, often referred to as Sleepy Time Yoga, is the perfect practice to heal and restore the body and mind after coming off a busy start to Autumn and prepare us for the slower season of the year. Whether you are new to yoga or are an experienced practitioner, restorative yoga will meet the needs of most everyone! This slow and passive style of yoga allows participants to find support with blankets, bolsters and other props in yoga poses, either seated or lying down, with the goal of finding the greatest level of comfort. This allows the body to indulge in deep relaxation to soothe the nervous system, therefore allowing the mind to receive a much needed rest. The benefits of restorative yoga are: ● Stress reduction/lowers cortisol levels - primary stress hormone ● Calms the mind and may reduce anxiety ● Relieves muscle tension, including back pain ● Reduces general fatigue, increasing serotonin production ● Helps with insomnia ● Activation of parasympathetic nervous system, or Rest & Digest response ● May increase immune function ● Lower blood pressure ● Increases body-mind-spirit connection through mindfulness meditation ● Gentle flush of internal organs through deeper breath work While this style of yoga is available to almost everyone a few precautions are: ● Eye conditions, such as glaucoma - needs for caution during inversions ● Serious recent or chronic injuries or inflammation - needs for moving slowly and mindfully ● Pregnancy - needs for slight modifications in some positions to allow for the safety of both mother and baby ● Spondylolisthesis/Spondylosis - needs for caution in many poses; back bending is contraindicated
