RESTORE & RENEW YOGA
All Levels Welcome
How often do you stop, truly relax, and connect with yourself?
Restorative yoga is a powerful healing practice that deepens our relationship to stillness and silence. It addresses the issues we store in our tissues and organs, balances the nervous system, and optimizes the overall energy flow. When you are in passive postures supported by props, using no muscular effort, the focus is on relieving the grip of muscular and inner tension. From that more spacious and receptive space, feelings and emotions are allowed to be released. When our body, mind, and spirit come to balance, our life becomes balanced.
Yoga nidra, or "yogic sleep", is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping in which the body, mind, and emotions are completely relaxed yet the practitioner remains fully conscious. This deep, relaxing state is achieved through guided breathing excersises and meditation, usually while lying down comfortably.
During yoga nidra, one's brain is immeresed in the healing waves of alpha state, where one's subconscious mind is open to healthy and positive suggestions, and where deep relaxation aligns the nervous system to restore the body and mind to homeostasis, manifest desires with intentions and affirmations, and even liberate oneself from their karma.
The practice of yoga nidra has been known to reduce stress, anxiety, and tension, as well as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
