Take Time to Restore & Soften Your Edges

Restorative | By Elena Brower on Jul 24 2012
Allow time for yourself with this highly restorative practice; your mind and body will respond in kind. Using a bolster (or a couple of rolled-up towels) as well as a block (or a large book), this healing sequence will alleviate anxiety, reboot your immune system, help you soften any harshness within your mind, and bring you back to yourself.

    Thank you so much, I didn't realise how much I needed that time but found myself crying and clarifying a lot of truths and I feel stronger to walk the path I have decided is best for me and my children.
    I promise myself to return here for as long as I need to. Jx

    Gorgeous. I feel calmer and more balanced. I feel like I can fully "see."

    Also amazed that I used my husband's xbox 360 box with stuff inside as a prop - worked very well. Anything can facilitate restoration.

    Thank you for your sweet, soft wisdom. My 2 year old came in to check on her mama during practice and said: " you listening to elena'" .... You are almost a part of our household ! (And everyone here is grateful because they know I come down softer and lighter!)
  • susan shloss     Oct 11th, 2012
    I appreciate your nurturing words. The weight on the belly is a new concept for me and I really love the way it defines the breath and works into the visceral tissue. I'm going to borrow it for my restorative class on Sunday! Thank you so much Elena.
