Class Description

Restorative poses support us and allow us to relax our grip on whatever our minds and bodies are holding tightly, so that we can rest, renew, and build vitality. This gentle practice skillfully alternates simple repetitive movements with the resting, restorative poses to help the body release toxins. Awareness of the breath enhances the effects of the postures. The session ends with a guided relaxation and a brief, seated meditation.

 For this class you'll need: bolster, 2-3 blankets, cushion/pillow for the head, and 2 yoga blocks for meditation (optional).
