Relax, Renew and Restore

Restorative Yoga

Time out to relax! By relaxing deeply and consciously we allow tension to release, we allow our bodies to soften, for energy to flow. By re-connecting with our ‘natural’ relaxed self, as  Judith Lasater says, we restore and renew our energy levels. These practices are ideal for times of chronic or acute stress, in times of illness, or when simply feeling depleted.

Neal likes to call this ‘lying around yoga’. “How often do we give ourselves this – a time to truly and mindfully relax? At the end of each session we can almost hear our bodies say, “Yes, this is what I truly need – deep rest”.

In Restorative Yoga we learn to let go and relax, and allow the earth and gravity to open our body to our natural energy flow. It’s a beautiful and gentle practice that can have profoundly beneficial effects:

  • A dismantling of chronic tension patterns
  • Enhanced immune function
  • Effective cellular respiration
  • Reduced hyper-tension in the cardiovascular system
  • Reduced mental and emotional tension
  • The body-mind can return to a natural state of equilibrium

Once experienced there is little doubt of the benefits, even if just for a few minutes of mindful breathing.
