restorative yoga.

Well friends, I am one book, two essays & observed class away from my teacher certification in Restorative yoga! I spent the weekend in a 2 day intensive training with the lovely Chris at Sundari Yoga learning all about Restorative.

 For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, it is a therapeutic form of yoga in which we use bolsters, blankets, blocks, eye pillows, and other props to assist you in a posture. The postures are held for minutes at a time in a completely supported way which allows the body to entirely relax, creating deep openings while maintaining softness in the body. It's a healing practice, great for anyone who puts stress on their body whether it be mental, physical, or those suffering from injury. I am excited to now add this style of yoga into my teaching repertoire as well as my own practice.
