Restorative Yoga Morning
Restorative Yoga Morning
Nes teaches restorative workshops and one to one sessions that can bring stillness, relaxation and a calmer state of mind. By incorporating props like yoga blocks, bolsters, blankets, and straps to support and align the body, restorative poses allow the body to fully relax in each posture.
The slower pace and deep breathing that you get in a restorative yoga class triggers the parasympathetic nervous system from the very first pose. This activation helps to mitigate the effects of the regular fight-or-flight stress response that can be damaging to your physiology and well-being. The overall calming effect on the nervous system sets a deeply relaxing tone for the class that comforts your mind and body down to the cellular level.
By incorporating props like yoga blocks, bolsters, blankets, and straps to support and align the body, restorative poses allow the body to fully relax in each posture.
Nes trained in restorative yoga with Judith Lasater and is a certified Relax and Renew teacher.
A morning of restorative yoga.
The session will begin with gentle floor based movements and breath work. Once our bodies are a little warmer and we have started to relax we shall do series of restorative passive postures with the body fully supported by a variety of different comfortable and soft props, giving your body no choice but to fully and deeply relax. At the end of the class there will be a meditation.
Following the restorative session we'll be brewing up some warming and enlivening herbal tea to get back into yourself.
In winter many people find their energy reserves begin to feel depleted. The colder weather and shorter days begin to take their toll as we notice the low lying levels of stress and anxiety affect our physical and mental health.
During deep relaxation, all the organ systems of the body are benefited, and a few of the measurable results of deep relaxation are the reduction of blood pressure, serum triglycerides and blood sugar levels in the blood, the increase of the good cholesterol levels, as well as improvement in digestion, fertility, elimination, the reduction of muscle tension, insomnia and generalized fatigue.

It is time to slow down and take more rest. We are supposed to be in semi hibernation but the pace of life accelerates as we during the festive season. This restorative experience should come at a time when things are starting to settle again and will help us to build our reserves back up. Restorative yoga gives us the opportunity to learn to relax and rest deeply and completely, helping us to feel rejuvenated.
In restorative yoga the body is fully supported by a variety of different props so that there is no active engagement of the muscles, instead they get to gently stretch, relax and open into the comfort of the props. Restorative yoga promotes deep rest and relaxation; it is the ideal way to recharge your batteries and is a real treat.
