If you have been following us on our blog and social media this week, you might have noticed that we mentioned restorative yoga a few times. No matter what kind of life situation we are in, we all need some time to ourselves. Restorative yoga is wonderful for everyone, especially if you work at a high-stress job or are constantly on the go, as it completely rejuvenates the mind and body. So, this weekend we challenge you to restore, rejuvenate and re-set with restorative yoga.
In this week’s Overheard in Yoga Class, Amy Ippoliti explains the importance of restorative yoga. If you are the type of person who works really hard or is constantly giving and thinking and doing things for others, then it is important that you really make some time for yourself. We all need time to restore and rejuvenate, so let restorative yoga be your time to receive – a gift you give yourself for all you do.
Class notes: In this practice of Level 2 Restorative poses, we cultivate stability and steadfastness by holding active weight bearing poses with support for specific lengths of time. Standing inversions, headstand, backbends, shoulder stand, and seated pranayama sequence to create and increase steady strength. This class uses a wall, two or three blankets, two blocks and a strap for the various poses.
