Practicing Stillness: An Afternoon of Restorative Yoga

Learning to rest and the ability to remain still can be a challenge in our hectic lives. Take time to rest, relax and renew.
In restorative practice the body is fully supported through the use of props, allowing the body to drop into stillness. Awareness is distributed evenly throughout the body, creating a sense of spaciousness. This allows the breath and the mind to quiet and the nervous system to relax.
 
You will learn:
  • Sama Vritti – “Even Breath” practice
  • Lovingkindness Meditation
  • Poses to support the nervous system to reduce stress
  • How conscious relaxation differs from sleep
  • How to down regulate the nervous system
