In the modern world, we rarely give ourselves permission to just stop, breath and be still. We are constantly rushing around, often creating a lot of tension in the body and mind and stimulating the nervous system.
Over time this can have an ill effect on both the body and the mind, so it is really important that we give ourselves the self-compassion to slow down and relax.
Restorative yoga is a series of poses that include the use of props such as bolsters, blocks, straps and blankets to help the student explore deep relaxation, stillness and inner peace. In these supported poses the body and the mind is guided in to relaxation to find stillness and calm with conscious breath.
Each student is given the space and encouragement to let go of tension and stress in the mind, body and breath so they are able to relax deeply, be present and open their hearts.
Once a month I hold a 2-3 hour restorative yoga workshop at various venues around Somerset. Please message or call me for more details about these sessions.
