Principles of Restorative Yoga
Date & Time: Sunday, January 7th, 12:30-2 PM
For those who missed our November workshop with Meg, we've added a second workshop opportunity!
As the seasons change and life gets busier, restorative yoga practices and meditation are an important part of self-care. This workshop will explore the mental and physical benefits of restorative yoga. Restorative yoga is the practice of asanas (physical yoga positions), each held for long periods, with the support of props. Restorative yoga has been linked to improved mood, sleep, digestion, respiration, relief from pain, and many other issues stemming from stress and overwork.
For those who prefer power yoga, the practice of slowing down can be challenging. Through this extended learning workshop and physical practice, we will give ourselves permission to ground down and go deeper.
This 90-minute workshop will include:
- An overview of the benefits of restorative yoga modalities, and suggestions for practicing at home.
- Physical demonstration of restorative poses
- A 75-minute class with guided meditation
Students are encouraged to bring props commonly found at home. A list of props will be provided ahead of the workshop. All experience levels are welcome.
