Service Description

Restorative yoga, also called gentle yoga, is a style of yoga designed to relax, restore, and rejuvenate the body, mind, and spirit. Restorative yoga falls under the umbrella of Hatha yoga, an ancient form of yoga with origins in India, which is intended to stretch and strengthen the physical body in preparation for seated meditation. This class will offer mellow movements, long-held postures often supported with props such as blankets and blocks, and a general atmosphere of ease and calm. Poses may be help anywhere from two to twenty minutes. Although restorative yoga is sometimes confused with yin yoga, these practices do differ. Yin yoga practice originates from Chinese medicine and has the intention is to stretch into deep layers of the body through long-held poses that target ligaments, tendons, deep fascia, and even bone. Restorative yoga creates conditions for calm so students can drop into a state of relaxation and stillness. This class will offer soothing music, relaxing pranayama practices, optional hands-on adjustments with consent post-COVID, heavy use of props, and perhaps mantra chanting. This intentionally calming environment is in stark contrast to the busyness of modern life and can provide a safe place for respite and refuge.
