ABOUT STRETCH & RELAX RESTORATIVE YOGA
This class is designed to allow almost anyone to participate in a very mild form of Hatha (Ha =Sun, Tha= Moon) Yoga. It is a slower paced practice to make it more accessible to people of all sizes, ages, and fitness levels. This program helps an individual in the management of stress and in choosing a lifestyle that promotes health and vitality.
Restorative Yoga uses props and blankets to modify traditional yoga poses. The supportive postures gently open the body to deep relaxation and healing.
Whether you need assistance in rehabilitating your body from a medical condition, daily stress, or you are interested in prevention of diseases such as high blood pressure or heart disease, this program may be of assistance to you. These classes support people with and without limitations. We also have fun!
The class will consist of 60 minutes of warm up exercises and yoga postures with and without the assistance of a chair, pillows, and blocks. The last 15 minutes will be a practice called Yoga Nidra, or a guided deep relaxation exercise. Singing Tibetan healing bowls will accompany the deep relaxation exercise. This is a practice of mindfulness done primarily while resting on the back or in a chair, in a comfortable position. Deep relaxation clears the mind and creates a relaxed and energized experience in the body.
Benefits of taking this class are remarkable! They include increased mobility and flexibility, improved concentration, reduced blood pressure and heart rate, improved posture, and the ability to relax more deeply and sleep better at night.
