This "yin" style class is a peaceful retreat from our fast-paced lives. Through slow, gentle movement and deep, passive holds (between 2 and 10 minutes) of simple yoga poses, we stretch the body to allow for a profound state of letting go. Deep stretching and meditation helps us to open channels, which facilitates healing of the body, mind and spirit. This is wonderful medicine to counter the anxiety of a busy life. It is the perfect way to end the weekend, and set the tone for the coming week.
Restorative / Deep Relaxation
Restorative yoga teaches the body to surrender allowing for soft tissue injuries to heal, muscles to release, minds to quiet and deepen physical openings. A handful of poses are taught using yoga props such as blocks, bolsters and blankets in a quietly lit room. The practice is passive and relaxing. All levels welcome. Accompanied with gentle music. Deep Stretch uses long, passive holds to work on the deep, dense connective tissues of the body - the tendons, ligaments and cartilage - which can be difficult to open. This deep, passive practice settles you into poses for 3-10 minutes, allowing you to relax and draw the mind inward. Stretching increases flexibility in the spine and hips and is restorative and rehabilitative for the joints and muscles. It soothes the mind and allows the body to recover and balance.
