Join us for an immersive restorative yoga experience that will nourish your body, mind, and soul. Soft, dim lighting and scented heating pads will set the stage for deep relaxation, while healing sounds guide you into a state of inner calm.
During the class, Colleen will expertly guide you through a series of supported postures designed to nurture and support your body. With each pose, you will be encouraged to turn your attention inward, observing your breath and relaxing each part of your body.
Traci Kinerk will also use the resonating power of sound to release any mental or emotional energy blocks, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Space for this event is limited, so be sure to sign up early to reserve your spot.
Benefits of Restorative Yoga
The beauty of Restorative yoga is that we don’t have to contract our muscles. Though we often believe we have to ‘work’ to increase our flexibility, we can in fact, achieve more opening by softening and relaxing than by forcing our way through a strong, dynamic asana practice.
The key difference is the approach. During a Restorative yoga sequence, we still stretch, but we’re encouraged to relax fully in the stretch with the aid of the props so that we can release tension and focus on the breath. This helps us to activate the parasympathetic nervous system (responsible for the rest / digest process), which helps combat that feeling of ‘overdrive’ that we often find ourselves in.
Because our body and minds become softer, this means we can also create the space to get in touch with our natural qualities of compassion and understanding of others and self.
Restorative yoga benefits include:
- Deeply relaxes the body
- Stills a busy mind
- Releases muscular tension, improving mobility and flexibility
- Improves capacity for healing and balancing
- Balances the nervous system
- Boosts the immune system
- Develops qualities of compassion and understanding toward others and self
