Restorative Yoga

Experience the healing balm of Restorative Yoga. Release tension and experience deep peace.

We are emmersed in a high stimulus, fast pace way of life. Our work-life often demands ever increasing productivity. Submersed in the ‘age of information’ our senses are often flooded. They are most definitely bombarded with information.

It has become second-nature to respond to stimulus at fast and almost automated manner. Stress inhibits the body’s natural healing abilities and tightens the body unevenly. This results in physical imbalances. We can find it challenging to ‘switch-off’ from this way of life.

Our sympathetic nervous system is on overdrive and we generate feelings that can overwhelm us. The body perceives this ‘over-stimulation’ or ‘stress’ response as being a heightened state of alert. It is the sympathetic nervous system that governs the fight flight or fight freeze response. We can help to move away away from a heightened state of alert by switching on the parasympathetic nervous system. We can do this by using restorative yoga and mindful breathing.

Restorative Yoga is a revolutionary tool

It helps to create the ideal conditions to relieve tension and stress. It invites deep relaxation, stillness and peace. Deep relaxation nurtures and vitalises the body. It guides the body to restore and renew.

This Yoga format uses props such as bolsters, blankets and blocks. These create a supportive experience for deep relaxation. The props allow each pose to honour an individual body. This allows everyone to experience comfort and relaxation. The props provide support to allow the body to maintain a pose. This helps to cultivate presence in the pose for longer than active poses. Holding a pose with ease for longer periods allows a gentle unwinding to unfold. This releases tension from the body and helps the mind to become more still.

The Art of Letting Go

Restorative Yoga is most certainly the art of relaxation. Experience the inward journey of letting go, of moving from stress to bliss…

Restorative Yoga & Chronic Illness & Pain

Restorative Yoga is a wonderful practice for anyone experiencing Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue/ME. It is also beneficial for those recovering from illness. Restorative Yoga can help those who experience chronic pain. A regular practice that is mindful and supported with deep, focused and relaxed breathing patterns. It is a fantastic antidote for pain relief.
