Space is limited so reserve your spot now if you are interested in attending.
We are living in a culture that is busier then ever before. We move fast, eat fast food, are surrounded by cell phones, social media, and electrical wires. On top of that we are trying to balance family life, friend life, jobs, and you could probably add a few other things to this list. :-) Most of us are so used to this way of being we don't even realize that our bodies are reacting to all these stressors by secreting hormones from your adrenal glands and sending your body into a flight or fight response. This will increase your heart rate, blood pressure, mental alertness, and muscle tension. Our digestion, elimination, growth, reproduction and repair systems are shut down and our body's capacity to heal itself is compromise. New ailments occur, for example high blood pressure, back pain, immune dysfunction, reproductive problems, emotional imbalances (anxiety, depression, insomnia, agitation, anger)
Learning how to relax is the key! This will allow:
-slower heart rate
-slower rate of breathing
-lower blood pressure
-slower brain wave patterns
-think more clearly
Restorative Yoga helps open the spine in all directions which will enhance the health of the spine. In Restorative Yoga we gently stimulates and soothe the organs by forcing blood out of the organs in some poses, and then soak the organs with fresh oxygenated blood in other poses. It is also a beautiful way to be guided and for some of us introduced to our inner bodies and help body awareness.
