The Bear Hug: Restorative Yoga to Soothe and Comfort

with Andrea Peloso

Style: Restorative

Duration: 45 min

Intensity: Low

Props: Blanket, Bolster, Chair

Class Description

Receive yourself as you are in this comforting practice.

You’ll begin in a chair with a seated “bear hug,” a cozy variation of child’s pose where you’ll wrap your arms around a bolster (leaning on a table) and use blankets for extra comfort and support.

After that, you’ll rest in side-lying savasana, another bear hug pose (where you’re hugging a bolster and supported by lots of blankets) so that you can really snuggle in and let go. Stay there as long as you like, and then choose where you go next: moving into frog pose (or a variation of it) or another restorative pose of your choice.

Conclude this soothing experience in a wide-leg chair-supported savasana.
