RESTORATIVE YOGA CLASS DESCRIPTION:
In our busy day to day lives we often forget how important rest is for our overall health. Rest promotes recovery from vigorous workouts as well as recovery from day to day stress by slowing the heart rate, boosting the immune system, and accelerating the body’s natural healing process. A recent study comparing restorative yoga to a more active stretching routine found that women lost more subcutaneous fat with yoga!
Restorative yoga and other healing-based yoga practices such as yoga nidra are part of a thousands of years old wisdom tradition. Unlike the dynamic movement of a typical yoga class, restorative yoga is slow-paced and incorporates the use of props to fully support the body in a few simple postures. As restorative postures are comfortably held for 5 – 15 minutes, we deeply relax to replenish our stores of energy and recover a sense of calmness. We hope you will join us soon for one of our new monthly Restorative Yoga classes. Class size is limited to 6.
