Stretch & Rest: Gentle Movement and Restorative Yoga
April 9 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Friday, repeating until June 18, 2021
Stretch & Rest opens space for deep relaxation by calming the sympathetic nervous system through breath and mindfulness. You will be guided through a series of intentional, seated stretches to prepare for the restorative portion of the class, which will consist of supported seated and reclining yoga postures. The entire class can be practiced while seated. Find a level, stable chair or seat. Prior to class, gather items that help foster comfort, such as pillows and blankets. A yoga bolster and blocks can be helpful, too.
The benefits of a restorative practice are broad and can include: release of myofascial tension, improvement in the quality of sleep, and a decrease in the body’s response to stress. Anyone can practice letting the body reset and restore. Be sure to add this class to help balance your busy life.
