Restorative Yoga 26.02.21 – What Do You Need Right Now to In Order to Seek Rest?

This month’s restorative yoga session in one in which we explore the possibility that just lying down and taking a few noticeable breaths may not be enough to help us settle towards rest.  Our practice today is one in which you will be allowed time and invitation to seek out what your body needs in order to be more settled.  Sometimes this might be movement?  Sometimes this might be added support?  Sometimes this might be noticing sounds around or within?  During this class you will be given permission to seek out what you need right now, in this moment to find more ease in order to better settle toward rest. Restorative yoga practice involves mainly lying down postures that are supported by props you can find around your home, held for several minutes.  This practice is one that supports the nervous system in settling. *to note this video was recorded with less studio lighting to support less brightness on your screen. Suggested equipment
  • 3-4 blankets
  • two yoga bricks (or books)
  • Bolster or a firm cushion
  • Cushion or pillow

A Practice for Settling

NEW VIDEO. This restorative practice is one for settling the mind and body.  We often go through our days shifting from being very active, to collapsing without tending to the space between these states.  This practice is for tending to the place between activity and collapse; a place where we can meet rest as rejuvenating and refreshing.  A wonderful practice for finding balance and relaxation.

Finding Balance – Pyjama Party

A deeply relaxing class for finding a bit of balance. Often when we seek balance in the body we strive for something ‘perfect,’ a perfectly balanced shape of feeling in the body.  Often just considering the idea of balance makes us feel imbalanced.  It might be that if we don’t strive for balance but rather stay present to what is, we find a greater sense of stability. Possible props needed (but if you do not have them, do not worry, you can still practice):
  • Yoga mat
  • A good amount of blankets
  • A yoga bolster or a firm sofa cushion
  • Possibly a yoga strap or scarf
Please note: after being unlocked, this class remains viewable for 48 hours.

Supporting Transitions – Pyjama Party

A class to set up the body for deep rest and relaxation. A class to support you in times of transitions during times of uncertainty or great change. How can we stay present to the subtle shifts occurring within in order to know better how to respond to the changes around us.  Considering the opposites of the body: heaviness/lightness, spaciousness/crowdedness, right/left, up/down – how might we seek a better sense of equanimity, balance and harmony? Possible props needed (but if you do not have them, do not worry, you can still practice):
  • Yoga mat
  • A good amount of blankets
  • A yoga bolster or a firm sofa cushion
  • Possibly a yoga strap or scarf
Please note: after being unlocked, this class remains viewable for 48 hours.

Finding Lightness

A class to set up the body for deep rest and relaxation.  A class for finding lightness in our restorative practice.   Summer heat, lockdown, there is a lot around that can bring a sense of heaviness to our bodies.  Sometimes a restorative practise can heighten this sense of heaviness, making you feel even more weighted and tired.  How can you use your restorative practise to find more space and a sense of lightness in the body?  You will explore restorative shapes that bring an element of uplift, ease and leave us feeling resting and perhaps a bit lighter. Possible props needed (but if you do not have them, do not worry, you can still practice):
  • Yoga mat
  • A good amount of blankets
  • A yoga bolster or a firm sofa cushion
  • Possibly a yoga strap or scarf
Please note: after being unlocked, this class remains viewable for 48 hours.
