Restorative Yoga Workshop

Returning Home to Yourself 
Saturday 10th September, 2-5pm, with Rona Burt

 

As the summer draws to an end, sometimes energy has been defracted like the summer light, leaving us feeling frazzled and pulled out of our centre.  This workshop allows us to follow nature’s seasonal cues and start to gather our energy inward.  Restorative Yoga is like harvesting the summer fruits of activity, so that we are ready to transition into autumn, feeling well-nourished and resourced.

” Deep rest is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, it is respect for life.”

–  Adelene Cheong

 

Treat yourself to this luxury 3-hour workshop of supported restorative yoga and breathing practices, which release tension throughout the entire body, cultivating an energy which centres, soothes and rejuvenates.
The aim of the afternoon is to equip you with the means of tapping back into one’s own inner resource of vitality and wellbeing.  To begin with, you’ll be guided through a gentle yoga flow sequence, which not only relieves stress held within the body but also improves flexibility and circulation.  This will be followed by a carefully-curated sequence of restorative postures, which bring the body into a deeper state of relaxation, as well as calming the mind.  Once the body is relaxed and the mind is quiet, there will be a pranayama practice, which helps to refine the quality of the breath and serves to re-pattern the nervous system at a very deep level.  Our workshop will culminate in a beautifully seasonal guided yoga nidra practice.
There will be time at the end of the session to share herbal tea and our experiences of the workshop together.

The breath is the messenger between the body and the mind, as you synch with your breath the dance partner and the dance become one.
