Restorative yoga focuses on floor poses for an extended length of time. Using props to fully support the body to encourage the muscles to let go. This results in releasing muscular tension and creating more space in the body and mind. This relaxing practice is an excellent opportunity to disconnect from the frenetic activity of daily life. It offers a welcome respite among the turbulence that often surrounds us. Moving slowly through the poses allows you to explore your mind and body. The slower pace and deep breathing in a restorative class engages the parasympathetic nervous system. The overall calming effect on the nervous system sets a deeply relaxing tone for the class. All levels welcome.
Yin yoga is an invitation to slow down and welcome ease and compassion into our lives. This is a relatively passive practice, done mainly on the floor that focuses on the denser connective tissues (myofascia) of the body. Working the body in this way greatly benefits the health of the joints by creating and maintaining flexibility and mobility. Poses are typically held for 2-5 minutes. In addition to the physical benefits, Yin Yoga teaches how to observe the body’s movement of energy, changes in sensations, thought patterns and emotions. No matter your level of experience with yoga, a Yin practice is an opportunity to settle into and observe whatever may arise in the body and mind.
