Rest & Recover

Rest & Recover

''Relaxation is a skill, it too, like any skill, has to be learned.''

Restorative yoga is designed for the nervous system. In fact, all asana is, when done right, supporting the health of the precious nervous system.
In the classes in this section, you will learn how to deeply relax and enter the parasympathetic state of the nervous system, where all healing takes place. Inflammation is reduced, strained tissues are healed, blood pressure is lowered and the resting heart rate can drop.
In these classes you will also learn soothing breathing techniques, also called Pranayama (and Prakashayama).
