RESTORATIVE YOGA THERAPY
"You can look the whole world over and never find anyone more deserving of love than yourself." - Buddha
Restorative yoga therapy incorporates both active and restorative yoga postures, breathing practices, guided imagery, meditation, mindfulness, deep relaxation, and self-inquiry to support a range of emotional conditions that include anxiety, depression, chronic stress, trauma, grief and loss. We work to keep the nervous system calm and balanced by consistently engaging the relaxation response of the parasympathetic nervous system in order to support the healing process. Through consistent practice, we recover our sense of wholeness, balance and strength, qualities that are present within us, waiting to be reclaimed.
YOGA THERAPEUTICS CLASSES
"I want to unfold. I do not want to remain folded up anywhere, because wherever I am still folded I am untrue." - R.M. Rilke
Yoga Therapeutics Classes are a melding of yoga, mindfulness, psychology, and healing. These public classes are run as a rotating series and offer yoga-based tools for the management of emotional conditions and the development of healthier, stronger and more positive attitudes toward the self. Therapeutic classes are also offered whose focus is to bring balance back to specific areas of the body that hold restrictions or sensitivities. Students find that freeing up these areas can have a direct impact on their overall well-being in general and on their nervous system in particular.
