From the desk of Jessica L. Molleur, Lic.Ac., DNBAO... For those of you looking for some extra relaxation, mindfulness, and meditation, our Restorative Yoga class on Monday nights at 7:30pm is a great option! Here's more about the class:
Q. What are the benefits of Restorative Yoga?
A. Restorative Yoga is a gentle form of yoga that helps the body rest, release muscular tension, reduce stress, and quiet the mind. The class is ideal for all students whether to help recover from an injury or introduce a relaxation practice.
Q. What occurs during a typical Restorative Yoga class?
A. Restorative Yoga uses props to support the body including blankets, bolsters, and blocks. Poses are often held longer and can be adapted so that they are gentle and allow your body to open through stretching. Classes typically incorporate relaxation or guided meditation at the end of each session
Q. How often should I take Restorative Yoga?
A. Restorative Yoga benefits the mind and body with the combination of gentle stretching and relaxation. A weekly practice can help to increase relaxation, help the body recover from injury, and develop a strong sense of well-being.
