This is an opportunity to move internally and connect with yourself spiritually and emotionally, allowing for openings and integration of oneself which translates to your daily life in all aspects. As we Relax, Rejuvenate, and Replenish, we have more flexibility with ourselves, and this begins our healing and transformation process. By supporting the body with props, we alternately stimulate and relax the body to move toward balance. Some poses have an overall benefit. Others target an individual part, such as the lungs or heart. All create specific physiological responses which are beneficial to health and can reduce the effects of stress and stress-related disease. 
Q: What is Restorative Yoga?
A: Restorative yoga has best been described as “active relaxation” and is a method par excellence for attaining deep relaxation, tranquility, and the many benefits of “de-stressing.” Using blankets, bolsters, pillows, blocks, straps, and other “props” to support the body, practitioners generally experience profound shifts in their nervous system, thus allowing a physiological shift to deep restfulness, calm abiding, and well-being. Gravity does the “work” as the body progressively relaxes and softens. As this occurs, so do the signs and symptoms of stress, such as depressed or elevated moods, hypertension, muscle tension, digestive problems, high cholesterol levels, eyestrain, headaches, and more.
Q: Who Can Benefit? A: Everyone! Whether you are a competitive athlete, marathon runner, or someone recovering from addiction, a debilitating illness, or emotional upset, these modalities can benefit you immensely. We will “meet you where you are.”
Restorative Yoga helps with: Fibromyalgia, IBS, Anxiety, Depression, Sciatica, Muscle Tension, Insomnia, Autoimmune Illness.
