Unwind & Let Go of the Day's Tension

Restorative | By Jo Tastula on Sep 10 2012
This restorative class is perfect for the end of a hard work day or work week as a way to unwind and let go of pent up tension. For a real restorative treat have ready a bolster, blanket and 2 blocks. Starting with slow spinal rolls we gently work our way up from the base of the spine and the hips, into supported back bends and easy spinal twist. We finish in reclined cobblers pose (supta baddha konasana). Please note that there is no savasana in this class. Blessings ~

    Just LOVE your 30 min restorative classes! As a mother of two little ones its hard to find time to restore and reset during the day ,so these 30 min after I put them to bed is a true gift! Thank you and keep them coming.

    My Husband and I both did this class... amazing. I love that the flow of the music is consistent (very important to me as it adds to the depth of the class rather than creates a distraction). I am also so thankful that she ended in supta baddha konasana. I will return to this class often :)
    Much love. <3
