with Susan Mathis
Find deep rest in this special series as we explore restorative practices, calming pranayama and relaxation. Restorative yoga is a specialized practice for those who desire deep relaxation, rest, nurturing and restoration. This special manner of practicing utilizes cushions, blankets and chairs to completely support the body through a selected sequence of postures. The body then deeply relaxes while the posture is being held.
Through calming breathwork and restorative postures, restorative yoga offers access to states of deep rest and renewal, enhancing freedom in the body and calming the nervous system. All of the benefits of yoga are received without any expenditure of energy.
Restorative postures will be guided using props from around your house such as pillows, towels and blankets. A specific list of items will be included in your confirmation email.
This experience will include:
~ Restorative Yoga
~ Deep Relaxation
~ Guided Meditation
Designed to promote deep restoration and relaxation, this series is for those seeking stillness and rest.
