Restorative+Nidra helps you enter a state of deep relaxation as you hold soft poses for longer periods of time with the help of props to make you comfortable and supported throughout the hour. The main focus of restorative yoga, is that by relaxing in poses, with the aid of props, without strain or pain, you can enter a deeper state of physical, mental and emotional relaxation. The slowing down also helps stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system, which again deepens your breath, slows your heart rate, increase the blood flow to your vital organs, and reduce overall stresses in our body. The practice is great to balance an active yoga schedule or to give yourself a break when you feel under the weather.
"In yoga nidra, we restore our body, senses, and mind to their natural function and awaken a seventh sense that allows us to feel no separation, that only sees wholeness, tranquility, and well-being" - Richard Miller
Feel free to bring some fuzzy socks, a warm sweater and an eye pillow (if you have) to your yin + yoga nidra practice so you can really snuggle up and enjoy the long holds, warm and comfortable.
All levels welcome!
