Restorative Yoga as you would expect from the name is the sweet, calm, restoring side of the practice of yoga. We’ll begin with some flowing vinyasa and standing postures. Movement to build some heat and stretch the body, just enough to bring suppleness to the joints, hips shoulders and legs in preparation for a deeper opening and to allow us to enjoy entering the relaxation that follows.
Restorative poses are soothing and well supported (blocks, cushions, belts etc) poses. We take time to settle in to the poses in maximum comfort to allow our selves time to savour the simple sweetness of life. As we allow the body to release into these restful, sometimes deeply opening poses we release muscular, physical and emotional tension and aim to move towards a state of deep contentment, so as we still our fidgety bodies we can calm our busy minds and allow our selves just to rest in the present moment and find some of that sweet PEACE MAN 😉
Maybe throw an extra layer in your bag or a warm sock to keep you cosy as you enjoy opening and resting in the poses. Come along and feel brand new when your done.
