When the pace of life is fast, our minds move fast too, and when we are also attracted exclusively to strong, fast-moving yoga practices, we can easily overstimulate ourselves — and our nervous system bears the brunt. We may end up compounding our stress-related symptoms, feeling easily overwhelmed and even more tired.
Following the Relax & Renew© method of Restorative Yoga as taught by Judith Hanson Lasater, we will be embodying the often repeated Yoga Sutra “Sthira Sukham Asanam” (posture should be steady and comfortable) and spending plenty of time in each pose to allow your body, mind, and therefore nervous system, to completely relax.
Join me for two hours of Restorative Yoga where, after a brief introduction to the science behind the practice, we will use props — blankets, straps, blocks and bolsters — to support your weight and allow your muscles to fully relax and release.
Leave feeling rested, relaxed and renewed. Open to Everyone.
"We work very hard in our lives, and while we may sleep, we rarely take time to relax. Restorative yoga poses help us learn to rest deeply and completely." - Judith Hanson Lasater
