Restorative yoga : True relaxation is “a state in which there is no movement, no effort and the mind is quiet”

Come and join us for a relaxing evening of restorative yoga. In this gentle and therapeutic workshop we'll start with a few flowing movements to loosen up before we use props to support the body, encouraging deep relaxation. Using passive yoga asanas we let our nervous systems shift and enjoy the benefit of true rest. Different from more active styles, we will concentrate on surrendering our weight to supports and softening into the stretches.

What is restorative yoga?
Restorative yoga is a therapeutic style that helps us to relieve the effects of negative stress encountered in daily life, and can be highly beneficial in times of fatigue, illness, and emotional strain. Our focus will be to calm and nurture ourselves on all levels during the class.The conscious relaxation techniques taught can be used outside of the yoga room, and you'll go away with some tools and techniques you can use at home.

At the end of the workshop we will practice yoga nidra, yogic sleep - a state somewhere between consciousness and sleep - which is reached through a guided relaxation.

Bring an extra layer and warm socks.
