All Ages

In Restorative Yoga, the aim is to support the body and get as comfortable as possible, being free from any tension or discomfort and allowing everything to be able to soften and release. A variety of different props are often used to facilitate this comfort. When we are comfortable, it allows everything to open, lengthen and relax, quieting and relaxing the nervous system as well as the physical body.

These classes will be relaxing and slow-paced, practising about five or six postures, which are held for longer periods of time. Props are used in order to allow the body to be in the most comfortable, supported position possible. This may include bolsters, blankets, blocks and belts. Gentle music will be played, and the practice is combined with guided relaxation and meditation.

The class will conclude with a guided deep relaxation - Yoga Nidra.
