During a mini-retreat you're guided through various techniques to encourage you to unwind, relax and ease physical and mental stress.

WARM STONE RESTORATIVE YOGA

 

Suitable for 2-4 students

Join me for a deeply relaxing, nurturing, blissful Warm Stone Restorative Yoga Mini-Retreat!

Using warmed stones to release tension and encourage relaxation is an ancient technique. Smooth stones made of basalt volcanic rock are warmed in water and used as placement stones along the spine, hands, feet and abdomen during a restorative yoga class.

 

WHY INCORPORATE HOT STONES INTO A RESTORATIVE YOGA MINI-RETREAT?

Heat is a natural relaxant, the warm stones are comforting, soothing, grounding, healing

Heat boosts the blood and lymphatic circulation bringing fresh oxygenated blood to the area being warmed by the stones and encouraging waste removal from the body’s tissues in addition to relieving stiffness and aches and pains

 

HOT STONE MASSAGE IS NOT SUITABLE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE/ARE:

Unfortunately hot stone treatments are contra-indicated in advanced stages of diabetes due to impaired sensory perception and risk of infection and for the same reason – clients with nerve damage/impaired sensory perception + those on high doses of pain medication

Clients with hypersensitivity to heat

Pregnancy - there is a risk of raising intra-uterine temperature which can cause miscarriage

Epilepsy

Peripheral Vascular Disorder, inflammation, varicose veins or thrombosis

High/low Blood Pressure, heart condition

Sunburn, eczema, shingles, herpes, any open wounds

Severe obesity (due to the additional pressure placed on the heart)

Students with Cancer or undergoing treatment for cancer/recovering from cancer

Prescription medications that thins the blood, thins the skin or makes the client more/less sensitive to heat/cold; these include Warfarin or other blood thinning medications, Roaccutane or other acne medications
