Gentle, restorative yoga is a relaxing, meditative approach often using props such as blankets and bolsters, supporting the body to gently release as opposed to actively stretching. Sometimes we will be flowing through mindful movement with the breath, sometimes the postures are sometimes held for periods of a few minutes. Being physically held in the posture and rocked softly by your breath allows muscular and emotional tension to evaporate, leaving you feeling clear and with a sense of heightened wellbeing. Suitable for those who are looking for a gentle or therapeutic approach to movement.
Yoga and meditation can help with stress, anxiety, insomnia, obesity, stiffness, injury, asthma, backache and many many more things. It is a way to uncover real health and wellbeing which is hardwired into the body from the beginning.
