Restorative Yoga is a practice about less being more. It is an essential component to a balanced practice of yoga. Restorative Yoga is designed to facilitate the connection to the parasympathetic nervous system, the rest and digest system. This connection helps release deeply held tension, stress and anxiety located in the physical, emotional and mental bodies. We use several props to do the work for us so we can simply relax, heal and grow stronger. You will leave Restorative Yoga feeling renewed and restored. This class is appropriate for students of all levels.
Saturdays 4:00-5:15pm with Marlan & Wednesdays 6:00-7:00pm with Kristen.
