Restorative Yoga – 4 Week Course

5th January 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm


Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga is the practice of relaxation for conscious deep rest. A practice with the use of props to support the physical body in position of ease and comfort, to facilitate positive relaxation response, for energetic, emotional and mental equanimity​.

As a practitioner, a balanced yoga practice encompasses a spectrum of kinesthetic asana, active release work, conscious breath work and meditation.

Restorative yoga can relieve chronic stress and reduce the effects of stress-related diseases, providing an environment for self-repair. The principle is to activate the Parasympathetic nervous system (PNS), which is responsible for balancing life support functions within the body and bringing their response system back to equilibrium. It works to stimulate the baroreceptors, deactivates the sympathetic nervous system, calming the brain and slowing the heart rate. This powerful practice provides conditions for the natural healing process to occur, and brings the body (physical, mental and emotional) to a harmonious relationship with nature.

The practice places emphasis on supporting the physical layers allowing space and time for one to renew and heal physiologically.  The activities of the brain / thoughts may settle into quietness and stillness, thus rejuvenating and recharging oneself psychologically, and promoting overall well-being.

Restorative Yoga may be practised by anyone and anytime and almost anywhere. Although restorative postures may look simple and peaceful, it can be challenging for ‘new relaxers’ or times when the mind or the physical body is dis-eased. One may take time to adjust and adapt to doing ‘nothing’ and be in active rest, so that the mind may settle. The key is patience and willingness to let go… to relax and restore. This is love and time spent with no one, but yourself in stillness.

The dates are as follows Friday 5th January, 12th, 26th & 2nd February

This 4 week course will be an exploration of deep rest and relaxation.  It is open to all abilities as modifications on the poses are always available.  If you have any questions as to whether this is suitable for you please contact nicky@mindfulguernsey.com
