Class Description

Gentle + Restorative Yoga (level 1)

In our fast paced environment and life stresses, sometimes you need to slow your flow, and even stop.      Gentle + Restorative Yoga is wonderful opportunity to relax the body and restore the brain. The body is supported in postures that are held for a longer period of time, using the support of props (blankets, blocks and bolsters) to feel at ease and find comfort in each pose. It is a softer practice designed to bring the body – muscles, joints, vital organs – back into its natural balance and state of grace. This is a relaxing, rejuvenating class.  All can benefit from this style class.
