Explore what complete equilibrium feels like in your body as you balance your emotional and physical realms through restorative yoga, reiki and prana healing combined. Immerse yourself in a state of complete balance and harmony.Harmonize the mind, body, and spirit with Reiki -- a healing technique with therapeutic touch -- combined with the restorative asanas. Create a rich braid of experiences that will allow you to open and release tension and stress.We awaken the pranic energy within the body with longer holds interspersed with light reiki touch and chanting. The practice ends in an extended savasana. It takes an average of 15 minutes to actually reach that state of calm we so desperately want and need in savasana. This class will encourage you to completely let go, surrender, and release into the moment.
Restorative yoga is simply that - restorative. It is the centering of your breath and body - aligning the physical and mental by practicing stillness or gentle movement for extended periods of time. We will incorporate props to assist in helping you to hold poses longer.
Starting out with a few minutes of gentle movement before settling into a restorative pose or practice. A little stretching will warm the muscles and create space in the body to prepare it for relaxation. Movement will also give your body a chance to shed its restlessness and busy-ness before settling into a place of stillness. In time and with practice, you will be rewarded with the ability to drop with ease into a place of deep contentment. This is what yoga is all about, after all: stilling our fidgety bodies and calming our rambling minds so that we may rest quietly in the present moment and see clearly the peace that resides within. I am keeping each class small, @4 people in order to make the environment intimate and warm. You don't need to bring anything. I have mats and props.
