True relaxation is “a state in which there is no movement, no effort and the mind is quiet.” – Judith Hanson Lasater.

As modern life demands more from us, it is vital to give the mind enough time and space to fully rest, in turn allowing the body a precious opportunity to recover and restore itself. Deep breathing, meditation and yoga have long been used to relax the mind and balance the body, and Restorative Yoga beautifully blends together all three. Using props (like blankets, blocks and bolster pillows) to fully hold and support the body, positions are enjoyed for longer periods, sometimes up to 15-20 minutes to facilitate breathing and allow the body time to release otherwise inaccessible tension. This allows the mind to settle into a state of deep stillness, giving the body a chance to restore itself.

Restorative Yoga lets your body receive all the physiological benefits of yoga postures, without the strain or effort of using muscles to hold you there. This conscious relaxation gently leads your mind into a quiet space, resulting in a profound sense of calm – with the added bonus of reducing your risk of stress-induced disease.

In this workshop, certified Relax & Renew© teacher Alison will guide you through a carefully constructed series of restorative yoga postures designed to create specific physiological responses in the body that are beneficial to health. The workshop also incorporates deep breathing techniques and guided deep relaxation to further help your body release tension and restore your mind, leaving you with a deep and profound sense of wellbeing.

Please note: – Bring at least one blanket with you on the day. This will be used to prop you up, feel free to bring more than one to keep you cosy. – Wear a couple layers of clothing and socks, the body can cool down significantly in deep relaxation. – You can also bring an eye pillow if you like. A limited number of eye pillows will be available for purchase on the day for £10 (cash only). – This is a limited capacity workshop due to the number of props used, so please book early.

This workshop is suitable for all levels, and highly recommended for anyone seeking stress-relief or a quiet space to unwind. Also perfect for yogis/yoginis who practice a more dynamic style to help balance their overall yoga experience. Please note this specific workshop has not been designed to accommodate pregnant students beyond their first trimester.
