Restorative Yoga YOGA FOR MEN Held once a term at each venue
We are constantly bombarded with stimuli these days - social media, advertising, television and radio to name a few. Your brain can be kept in a heightened state with all of this. Now, this is okay for a while, but we need to slow down, relax and take it easy. Restorative yoga does what it says, it restores you, mentally and physically.
Once a term, at each venue, I'll be leading a restorative yoga session which will include meditation and breathwork. Restorative yoga is a perfect way to start your Yoga journey if you haven't done Yoga before. This style of yoga helps you to relax and rejuvenate on a physical and mental level. The breathwork you'll practice will bring you into a rest and restore state of mind and you'll leave feeling focused and refreshed.
Restorative Yoga can help restore the body to its parasympathetic nervous system and induce the relaxation response, counteracting the ‘fight or flight’ response and promote feelings of wellbeing, making you more resistant to the negative effects of stress.
Postures are held passively for an extended period of time, either seated or lying down. We use supportive props, such as bolsters, blocks, blankets, straps and eye pillows, you will be able to completely relax and hold poses for longer - with no effort. Your body will gradually open up and sink naturally into deep, restorative relaxation. The stretching is passive, which eliminates unnecessary straining.
The breathwork you'll practice is used by the U.S. Marines to help calm them down in tense situations. It's scientifically proven to get you out of your fight and flight stress mode into a more relaxed you.
What do I need to wear/bring?
Shorts t-shirt/vest for yoga practice. A Yoga mat. A drink bottle.
