Restorative Yoga Workshop
Saturday 22nd July 4.30-6pm
Restorative yoga balances a hectic and stressful modern lifestyle and has an enormous capacity to heal physical and mental effects of everyday stress, and as we know, many diseases these days are stress related. Restorative yoga relaxes the body deeply and accelerates the body's natural healing process.
During deep relaxation, all the systems of the body are benefited from the practice. Restorative yoga postures help us learn to relax our overstimulated mind and body and to rest deeply and completely to achieve physical, mental and emotional release.
With the use of specific restful poses and deep breathing techniques, practice stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which slows the heart rate and breath, increases blood flow to the vital organs, regulates the blood pressure and helps to improve the immune system. It promotes improvement in digestion, fertility, elimination and the reduction of muscle tension and general fatigue.
The regular practice of restorative yoga has been found to reduce tension in the body and the autonomic symptoms of chronic stress such as anxiety, insomnia, headache, giddiness, chest pain, palpitations, sweating, digestive issues or abdominal pain.
This class suits everyone but it is especially helpful to those who are suffering from chronic stress related illnesses and those who are in need for emotional restorative support. It’s being especially popular with students who are recovering from illness or injury. You may leave the session feeling supported, grounded and connected.
Your tutor Aslihan (Yoga Crow) is an experience teacher who has much knowledge of guiding students into a state of deep relaxation. Having taken advanced training with Judith Lasater who is regarded as one of the best restorative yoga teachers to train with - we are very privileged to be offering these sessions in our beautiful studio.
