Restorative Yoga + Yoga Nidra
I am so excited and feel privileged to be offering a monthly restorative yoga and meditation class to Expansion yoga in Traralgon starting in May 2019.
This class will allow you to take a restful break for yourself, which is “essential” for us humans.
It is vital for our health and wellbeing that we take regular space to feel into our bodies, switch off, stop, recharge and for deep rest.
Taking regular relaxation is no different than going to the gym or eating well, so make sure you pop these dates in your calendar.
Benefits of restorative practices:
* Slows down the pace of life
* Calms the nervous system
* Encourages mindfulness
* Heals emotional pain
* Cultivates heightened body awareness
* Strengthens acceptance and detachment
* Helps you feel safe and nurtured
* Find out where you hold your stress
* Assists in weight lose (yes less movement is more)
* Boost your immune system
* Quiets the mind
Restorative yoga and yoga nidra really assisted me to during my chronic fatigue and lyme’s journey and I now do almost daily to “maintain” my wellbeing, to manage my own anxiety, racing mind, to raise my energy levels and to take time to stop and connect with myself.
This class will include:
* Restorative yin yoga + deep breathing
* Lying yoga nidra meditation
Details of restorative yoga and yoga nidra are below. You do not need to be flexible or have done yoga before to join this class.
Restorative yoga is a kind of active relaxation, assist us to learn how to unwind, relax, de-stress and reboot and restore the nervous system.
It promotes internal restoration and healing. A restorative yoga typically involves being completely supported by props, blocks and blankets that allow you to completely relax and rest. Held for 5-10 minutes or more, restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends.
Yoga Nidra is an ancient sleep-based meditation technique that has the power to take you to the innermost, deepest levels of relaxation where your whole body and being is permeated by peace of mind and profound stillness. It unlocks the mystical, integrative powers of the subconscious, as well as your higher centres of consciousness, to effortlessly erase your most tenacious, self-destructive habits and behaviour patterns. It is said by yogis that Yoga Nidra is as restorative as three hours of sleep.
