Learning to step away from our busy lifestyles and to relax is one of the best ways of listening to what the body needs to maintain vibrant health.
Almost everything will work again If you unplug it for a few minutes, including you. ~ Anne Lamott
A monthly workshop dedicated to deeply nourishing relaxation for the body and mind, designed to release tension, and leave you feeling restored for the weekend.
Giving time and space to the art of relaxation is an important part of a well-balanced lifestyle. In each workshop, Laura will guide you, over the two hours, to gently slow down; starting with some gentle movement and moving into juicy restorative poses.
In Restorative Yoga, as the breath slows down, the heart rate follows and the body naturally relaxes. In passive floor-based yoga postures utilizing props such as bolsters, folded blankets, and blocks, the body begins to release into the support beneath. Allowing up to 20 minutes in each posture gives us time to explore sensations and find ease in the fullness of being. Breathing techniques and meditation will be woven in to complement the relaxation.
The benefits of a Restorative Practice:
- Lowers cortisol (chemical messenger involved in stress response)
- Increases immunity
- Promotes digestion in the belly brain, our mood regulator
- Facilitates internal reflection (helps to transform inner narratives)
- Nervous system regains equilibrium
- Improves sleep
- Lowers blood pressure
- Releases muscle tension
