About this class

Restorative Yoga provides healing for the body,mind and soul. These poses have been modified and are supported by props allowing students to release physical, mental and emotional layers of tension while resting in the pose. Ananda Restorative Yoga is unique in guiding students  to bring energy inward toward the spine and upward to the point between the eyesbows - the seat of superconsciousness. Therefore restorative yoga not only relaxes the body and mind, but can be incredibly rejuvenating for the whole person. Restorative yoga can even be used when one is feeling ill, fatigued, low energy or greatly stressed. It can provide support during major life events such as transitions with jobs, relationships and homes, or losing a loved one. The poses are designed to help you cope with these changes. Restorative Yoga can take you on a journey far away from your daily life to deeply relax, restore, and balance and bring you home to your true self. Restorative yoga is an opportunity to relax, unwind, and release anxiety and physical tension. We begin by moving and warming up our bodies, then transition into poses held for 5 to 10 minutes using props, including blankets, bolsters, blocks, and straps for support and comfort. These long holds, coupled with breathing exercises, promote deep relaxation, which balances the nervous system, decreases stress, heals the mind and body, and increases flexibility and energy flow. Beneficial for beginning to advanced students.
