This class is for de-stressing and re-balancing our energy. This combined yoga practice will renew and ready us for a calm evening, good night’s sleep and clear day ahead. Our Restorative Yoga will use a variety of postures supported with props, such as chairs, bolsters, blankets and straps to experience a deep body relaxation. We move our spine in all directions, alternately stimulating and soothing our organ systems. We reverse the effects of gravity, returning the fluids to our upper body and enhancing heart function. Reducing muscle tension and fatigue, as well as improving digestion, we provide a supportive environment to relax the body. We end with Yoga Nidra as a very powerful way to still the mind. It is not necessary to concentrate. Simply listen to the instructions, follow them mentally, and refrain from sleeping. Yoga Nidra can calm the mind and elevate our spirit.
With deepest gratitude, Gabriella facilitates a class in which students remember to live in the present moment, connect with their breath, and find more space to align with their authentic self.
