What is Restorative Yoga?

You will ease yourself into deep relaxation.  Using pillows, cushions, blankets and props you will melt into the poses and be gently held.  Guided visualizations, gentle meditation and reflection on finding peace within yourself will help remember the real you and what’s really important.Restorative Yoga is perfect for those who are stressed, in need of peaceful meditation, and for those who do yoga on a regular basis, it is a chance to go much deeper in their stretching.  This class will change the way you do yoga, teaching you when to let go and just allow yourself to be held in a pose. In deep meditation, the world slows down and you take a break from everyday concerns. Yoga switches you out of flight or fight and into the relaxation response - your body's natural healing state where revitalization and regeneration naturally occur. This practice suspends your mind between being awake and asleep where you get the ultimate power nap. Research shows that regular practice of restorative yoga can strengthen the immune system, regulate blood pressure, aids insomnia, and balances the nervous and endocrine systems.There is nothing for you to do but lie down and relax. Adding aromatherapy ensures that whatever your experience, the practice will still work - even if you fall asleep. The deepest layers of your Self are always receptive and will experience the full journey.

Yoga is the resolution of the agitations of the mind- Yoga Sutra

NamaSTATE of Mind

Refresh and Renew with Aimee & Anu

Sunday, March 10th

12:30 - 2:00pm

 
“Namastate of Mind” restorative yoga brings harmony and balance to the body’s rhythms. It brings you to a state of being, not doing. There is no movement or effort and the mind becomes quiet. Props are used to place the body in comfortable, relaxing poses. This enables the mind to clear, the breath to deepen, and the body to relax into balance. Restorative Yoga is the practice of deliberate stillness. This is when the healing can begin.
Join your teachers Aimee and Anu as they guide you to move through a series of gentle and completely supported asanas with the use of props to encourage the body to truly let go. When the body is at rest and the mind becomes calm, students can fully experience the peace within and become one with all that is.

With dimmed lighting, candles, soothing music, gentle massage with aromatherapy essential oils and the healing touch of Reiki, they will create the perfect environment in which to soften the body and unwind. This workshop will close with a sweet Yoga Nidra to complete your restorative practice. You will leave feeling rested yet rejuvenated!

Cost: $25/person
