LAST MONDAY OF THE MONTH, 6.30PM GMT: Live Streamed Restorative Yoga Classes

If you can’t make it live you can get a recording that lasts 30 days.

Restorative yoga is the hidden gem of the yoga world giving the more active side of your practice much needed balance through stillness. As the name suggests this style of yoga restores the body from within your rest and relaxation response. Your body is held comfortably on the ground with various props and every pose is about unwinding. There is no stretching just opening more into yourself. When you relax deeply, you soften to your body sensations, handover to your breath and drop more into your awareness to initiate deep relaxation for the body, mind and soul. Letting go in a restorative pose allows you to rediscover what is already there; your silence, your peace and goodness. Our busy modern lives pull us away from this awareness. I will hold space for you to restore but my wish is that you will enjoy this so much you will hold space for yourself after a stressful day, after a long walk at the weekend or any other time you need it.

Last Monday of every month, 6.30pm – 7.30pm (opens 6.20pm)

27th Sept, 25 Oct, (no class 29.11.21), Christmas Special 13 December & 2022 coming!

ANY QUESTIONS?

A key feature in Restorative Yoga is the use of props such as blocks, bolsters, or blankets but many items around your home can work just as well. The props help you hold passive poses for longer without exerting or tiring out your muscles. It allows you to feel comfortable and supported, giving the active side of your nervous system time out. The longer yet comfortable hold in poses along with the focused breathing is Restorative Yoga’s unique reaction on your relaxation response. This response can help slow down a racy mind, improve your sleep patterns, promote mindfulness, reduces chronic pain and increases your overall well-being.

My introduction and training in Restorative Yoga was with none other than Judith Lasater while completing my 200hr teacher training in London. My studies continued with Judith spanning over a decade leading me to be qualified as an Advanced Restorative Trainer®. This yoga style is known for its ability to activate the parasympathetic nervous system. This is the “rest and digest” part of your nervous system that helps keep basic functions working as they should. It is good for your immune system, your energy banks, for pregnancy, lowering stress and anxiety, improving your self awareness and much more. Who would of thought doing nothing could be so good for you!

Receive the breath, receive the weight of the body, receive the moment.

The quieter you become the more you are able to hear.

Let your breathe untie the knots in your body and mind.

Taking time out each day to relax and renew is essential to living well.
