During the winter months, it feels natural to slow down, to add more rest and relaxation to my routine as a way of maintaining my physical and mental wellbeing.
Particularly as we navigate our way through a Pandemic, staying well is essential. Finding ways to soothe our nervous system and support our immunity is vital.
Restorative Yoga is a wonderful practice to cultivate relaxation as an antidote to stress and disease. The state of conscious relaxation doesn’t just happen, it has to be nurtured and encouraged. Learning to relax is the key to living well.
Restorative Yoga is a prop-heavy practice, using bolsters, blocks, blankets and cushions to create a supported environment for the body.
It is currently my favourite class to teach and I love the fact anyone can do it. You don’t need any yoga experience or expensive Yoga equipment.
Bolster for 2 firm pillows
Yoga block for large books
Yoga strap for a belt, tie or a scarf
Eye pillow for a soft fluffy sock
All you need is a quiet space, a warm blanket, light some candles and you are ready to go!
