Gentle and Restorative Yoga
Slow paced and gentle, this class encourages stress release and letting go. Props (blankets, blocks, belts, and chairs) are used so that muscles can soften and tensions unwind. Postures and stretches are held for extended time to allow your energy to settle and balance. All body systems are rested, soothed and refreshed. All levels of fitness are welcome.
In this class you will go deeper into poses, holding them longer. Revolved standing poses, deepening twists and preparations for backbends and arm balances will be introduced. Pranayama (breath control) is introduced.
