After centering and pranayama, this Restorative Yoga (RY) practice will focus on quiet and meditative poses which are supported or reclined for up to seven minutes each. RY is simplistic: it revolves around up to 12 different poses. You will rest on bolsters, folded blankets or cushions, while frequently listening to the facilitator recite quiet guided meditations and thoughtful readings. The focus of this practice is to go inward, meditatively; to release and let go; to stretch and support joints, muscles and connective tissue in passive and lasting ways (differently from Yin Yoga and from traditional, motion-based yoga) and to learn relaxing breathing techniques. Don't be surprised if you fall asleep! If you have a bolster of your own, please bring it with you! Otherwise, we do have some available at the studio for your use.
