Deep Restorative Sessions
The restorative practice invites us to relax, reestablish and renew integrity in all the layers of our selves.
Human beings have a tendency to accumulate tension due to emotion, stress, exhaustion and more, and when our physical or energy-centers and channels are out of harmony our vital force is unable to freely circulate, resulting in distress, disease, or a lack of mind and body integrity.
In deep restorative, we go to the trigger points of accumulation, dissolving tension by correcting skeletal alignment and releasing the joints, muscles, tendons, deeper tissues, fascia and skin, with the help of props, breathing techniques and complete relaxation.
Like as in all life, we need support around us to be able to let go. With the aid of the props we will move through gentle backbends, laterals, twists and forward folds. Energy along the spine governs the physical, emotional and mental functions of our being, and needs to be moved in all directions to be healthy and keep energy flowing.
Complementing these postures, we will learn how to use the breath in mindful way, to release with awareness throughout the inner body. And we will slow down the breath and heart rates, and ease our blood pressure, to help relax and calm the restless mind.
With the parasympathetic nervous system activated through restorative practice, the blood flows away from the limbs to stimulate and calm the organs, aiding our digestion, assimilation and elimination, which in turn serves to reduce stress, anxiety, emotional pain or exhaustion.
These sessions are designed to be gentle and soothing and can be practiced even when you are feeling weak, tired, ill or frazzled. Most of all, it is important to remember that we are not driven by the desire to ‘touch our feet’; we practice releasing and relaxing on our way to the feet. So, leave your ego behind, close your eyes, and drift within.
For the deeper restoration of all our layers from the physical to emotional, energetic, mental and blissful we will combine these sessions with breathwork, yoga nidra & meditation.
