Restorative Yoga Classes

Restorative yoga encourages students to relax and unwind.

Postures are adapted from classical yoga asana, and practice focuses on relaxing the body in restful supported positions balancing the autonomic nervous system.

This class offers ‘active’ relaxation to allow time and space to renew and rejuvenate the body and mind.

What to expect

A class may comprise of 5 or 6 poses that are held from 5 to 15 minutes.  Bolsters, blankets and props are used to allow the body to open and soften while supported by the breath.

This is a passive, calm restful class and may be 1 – 2 hours duration and usually limited to 8 students.
