“Taking time out each day to relax and renew is essential to living well.”  ~ Judith Lasater

 

Update: The last monthly workshop is a Restorative Yoga + Yoga Nidra workshop on the winter solstice, Saturday December 21. 

Restorative yoga is the yoga of relaxation and Yoga Nidra is referred to as yogic sleep.  Both practices have a profound effect on the nervous system, helping to restore calm and promote higher quality sleep.  What’s more is that both practices have effects on the nervous system similar to restful sleep – a 20-minute practice may provide the same benefit as an hour of restful sleep.  Combined, these practices are truly magical and can help you reset after a busy fall and move into the holiday season with ease and calm!

 

In these workshop classes you will experience several deeply relaxing, supported, restful postures designed to calm your nervous system, improve sleep, benefit immune function and increase your overall energy and feeling of well-being.  These workshops will also include some breath and awareness techniques in the Restorative postures that can change our relationship with pain.  Each class has been scheduled near the New Moon each month – a time for new beginnings.  Along with the Restorative and breath awareness practices, these classes will each include a different meditation or mindful practice.

 

Restorative yoga can help you to build resilience to the everyday ups and downs and enhance your ability to respond from a place of equanimity. It is one of several methods that has been shown to elicit the “relaxation response” in order to reset the nervous system.  You can read more about the practice of Restorative yoga here

 

While these classes are stand alone classes, those that register for all 4 will receive additional support for setting up a 20-minute home practice of Restorative yoga – a daily practice helps accumulate the benefits, changing our patterns around stress to more easily find calm.

 

 Each class ends at 8:30pm and you are invited to stay for tea and treats to socialize after until 9:00pm
