Gentle Yoga with Restorative Poses
This mindfully paced and gentle class will engage your whole body, and is for students of all levels of experience and capacity. We will be alternating between Hatha Yoga style held poses and simple flow sequences that link poses, to bring our nervous systems into balance. This class ends with resting in restorative postures to de-stress and deepen relaxation states. The last 15 minutes will be a meditation practice for those who can stay.
How the Course works:
Props are Needed: Set your movement space, seated, or lying down, surrounded by easy-to-reach yoga blocks ( or books), yoga bolsters and /or firm and soft pillows, a strap or scarf, two tennis or softer balls tied in a sock, or two rolled up socks. An Eye pillow, a rolled towel, and a glass of water are all recommended.
It helps to have a chair and a wall space to push or lean on as well.
