A restful and restorative experience. No experience is needed. Restorative yoga emphasizes the calming of the nervous system and teaches the art of relaxation, which has tremendous mental and physical benefits. A series of rejuvenating and supported poses are taught to promote vitality and create a state of deep relaxation. Melt tension away and leave feeling completely refreshed and fully restored. A great class for all levels of yoga students.
A quiet practice suitable for all students. It provides an opportunity to surrender, slow down, and bring balance to your practice. Many of the poses are seated, and are held for longer periods of time to encourage slow and safe openings. There is a focus on the breath, being present in the moment, relieving tension and letting go. The Yin practice includes powerful mental and emotional benefits as the practitioner becomes quiet, still and mindful of the present. Yin yoga is open to all levels of students and is a perfect complement to a more yang or more active style of yoga such as Level 1 and Level 2.
This practice is for anyone who prefers yoga seated in a chair. This practice is a safe option for those who may have difficulty transitioning from floor to standing, those with injuries, as well as office workers looking for ways to bring stress reduction into the work day. Focus is on safe alignment and proper engagement of muscles, all with the safety of a chair.
