A slow-paced yoga class that focuses on postures to awaken and relax your body and mind. Soothing music, rejuvenating postures and deep relaxation combine to refresh your body and mind. This is a great class for beginners or those with injuries or stiff joints.
- IMMUNITY BOOSTER - By calming the mind and body into a deeper sense of relaxation, Gentle yoga style classes also rejuvenate the body and help boost the immune system. Because the postures are not overly taxing on the body, this style of practice is also beneficial for people who are ill, weak, or recovering from an injury.
- CALMS A RESTLESS MIND - This one benefit can actually be one of the hardest for most people who are used to being active all day long. Restorative or Gentle yoga is like a form of meditation done in different positions, most of them done seated or lying on the floor. As you hold the poses longer and allow the muscles to relax, you can create a space to calm the mind, focusing only on the breath—and letting go of the thoughts in your mind.
- BODY HEALER - Restorative style yoga practices activate the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS). This is the involuntary part of the nervous system that controls the heart rate, intestinal activity and other bodily functions that we don’t think about. When the PNS is engaged through Restorative types of yoga, the heart rate automatically slows down and the organs of the body are able to regulate themselves better than during our normal busy stress filled lives.
