WHAT IS YOGA RESTORE?
Yoga Restore is just as it sounds - restorative by nature with postures that are performed primarily sitting or laying. Similar to Yin Yoga, the focus of this class is to target the connective tissues of the body (tendons, fascia, and ligaments) through slow and long-held stretches. These poses, which are generally held for 3-5 minutes, assists in increasing circulation to the joints and improving flexibility. Due to the stillness in the poses, we see this as a great opportunity to focus on the Breath, thus activating the meditative side of the practice.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A CLASS?
Slow and mindful movements, carefully thought out to promote healing for the body, while also speaking to those stagnant/sore areas within the body, and allowing those areas to release. It is a wonderful antidote for stress of the body and mind! Within a 1-hour class, we flow through 4-8 different sets of postures, always ending in Shavasana. Students are provided with props to support comfort on the mat, and hands-on adjustments to "fine-tune" and allow for a deeper engagement.
WHO SHOULD GO TO A CLASS?
Anyone and everyone! All experience levels are encouraged to go to this class. Much as each of us has our own individual goals outside of yoga, the same is to be said within the yoga practice. For those who are experienced, it can provide a meditative and therapeutic experience; for those who are new to yoga, it provides a slow and gentle ease into the practice; for those who are athletes, it provides a form a therapy for the connective areas of the body; and for those who are new to a fitness regime, it provides a opportunity to get into better health and wellness. Whichever of these body types you are - there is no doubt that you will benefit from this practice. Come. Feel nourished in your Body, Mind, and Soul.
