Yoga is an ancient Indian form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility, and breathing to boost physical and mental well-being, leading to greater integration of being, internal peacefulness, and clarity of mind. The word “yoga” means to “unite”. Yoga is all about uniting or harmonizing the body with the mind and breath through breathing techniques, yoga postures, and meditation. The practice of yoga helps to relieve stress as well as unclutter the mind and helps you to have more focus in life. It can also help you to find a place of peace, tranquility, and stillness in a world often consumed by chaos.
In the modern world, you rarely give ourselves permission to just stop, breath, and be still. You are constantly rushing around, often creating a lot of tension in the body and mind, and stimulating the nervous system. Over time, this can have an ill effect on both the body and the mind, so it is really important that you give yourself the self-compassion to slow down and relax.
Restorative yoga is a series of poses that include the use of props such as bolsters, blocks, straps, and blankets to help the student explore deep relaxation, stillness, and inner peace. In these supported poses, the body and mind are guided into relaxation to find stillness and calm with conscious breath. Each student is given the space and encouragement to let go of tension and stress in the mind, body, and breath so they are able to relax deeply, be present, and open their hearts.
