WHAT HAPPENS IN A RESTORATIVE YOGA MINI-RETREAT?
During a RY mini-retreat you're guided through around 5 simple yoga poses that are all done lying down, on the support of a padded mat. The shapes your body makes take your spine through it's various ranges of movement and are held from 5-20 minutes. Your comfort throughout is of the utmost importance so if a shape that's suggested doesn't suit your body, I give you alternatives. This effortless, still, gentle practice is designed to assist participants to unwind, relax and ease physical and mental stress
In a typical session, you'll be guided through breathing exercises, mindfulness techniques + meditation with the intention of helping you nourish your body, mind and spirit, so you can reset your nervous system and once again flourish. I use guided mindfulness suggestions as a tool to change levels of stress in the moment and guided meditation to soothe the nervous system, while participants are fully supported physically with props, allowing profound relaxation. For Savasana (the final pose) I offer silence
Deep rest in a neutral environment can help us cope with stress and challenging times

CLOTHING FOR RESTORATIVE YOGA
Please note, after an initial gentle movement sequence to unwind and slow down, you'll be lying still for the remainder of the class which means your body temperature may drop. To help yourself totally relax, your comfort is of the utmost importance, so please wear lots of layers to stay at a comfortable temperature. Blankets and in some sessions warm basalt stones are provided for additional warmth and comfort but please wear socks, two to three tops and cosy leggings or tracksuit bottoms so you have layers to remove or add to stay at the perfect temperature for deep relaxation
*warm basalt placement stones are contra-indicated in some health conditions so please always check with me that they're suitable for you
