This is a full 70 minute intermediate restorative yoga class. You will need a bolster, 2 yoga blocks, meditation cushion, and an eye pillow to support you in these restorative yoga poses and incredibly relaxing yoga. We all do too much while taking too little time for physical, mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual nourishment. Restorative yoga gives us time to restore our energy with relaxing yoga for stress relief and yoga that will help us get a good night’s sleep.. In restorative yoga we are practicing supported, passive yoga poses. This restorative yoga sequence is yoga for your stress hormones, particularly high cortisol levels. With the use of yoga props such as bolsters, blocks, blankets and walls your body is supported into a state of recovery. This is yoga for anxiety and stress relief.
When we take the time to restore our energy, our stress hormones, particularly, cortisol lowers and we will experience more energy, deeper sleep, healthier menstrual cycles, better moods, and easier menopause. It is easy to blow through more of the energy that we gain from sleep, exercise, nutritious food and good company. We are constantly dipping into our energy reserves. The result is that we feel exhausted and even fragile. It takes a lot of courage to stop running, stop pushing, stop overspending our energy reserves and stop trying to please everybody.
With restorative yoga we can begin to regroup and rebuild. We can learn how to expend our life force energy economically and efficiently. We can create balance in our life by nourishing our energy. When we take the time to slow down, we find we have a spaciousness and gain some energy back to enjoy our life more.
Props Needed: Bolster, 2 blocks, meditation cushion, eye pillow
