Claudia will guide us through a carefully thought out workshop, opening with Pranayama (breathing exercises), working through some warming yoga postures and moving into the restorative part of the practice. The workshop will finish with a mindfull guided Yoganidra.
Restorative yoga is a practice that brings you towards a healing and recuperative experience, soothes the nervous system and deepens self awareness.
A restorative practice relies on the use of props and the prolonged holding of a few simple poses to achieve a deep level of relaxation.
Soothes the nervous system
The slower pace and deep breathing that you get through restorative yoga triggers the parasympathetic nervous system. This activation helps to mitigate the effects of the regular fight-or-flight stress response that can be damaging to your physiology and well-being. The overall calming effect on the nervous system sets a deeply relaxing tone that comforts your mind and body down to the cellular level.
Deepens self awareness
The subdued quality of a restorative yoga practice helps you draw attention inward and away from external events and situations of the world. With your awareness directed within, the practice becomes a sanctuary for the mind and spirit from which you can take a deeper look at who you are, what you want, and how you can serve the world. Restorative yoga opens us up to new levels of self-exploration and contemplation, allowing your inner being to shine forth.
Minimum of 6 people in order the workshop go ahead.
