Restorative Yoga Cork
Restorative Yoga is a gentle, mindful, nurturing practice that anyone can do.
Release anxiety the natural way. In our busy lives, it's important to take some time to allow the body to rest & replenish it's self. Restorative Yoga allows the body to rest deeply in supported yoga postures allowing the body to completely relaxed, being held by bolsters, blankets, chairs, cushions etc. Bringing Mindfulness to our body by becoming aware in each passing moment of the breath moving in & out of the body, the sensations we are experiencing & delving into peace within. The body releases in a passive way calming the nervous system. These easy yoga postures supported by props, using no muscular effort, focusing on relieving the grip of muscular & inner tension, allowing opening to spaciousness & receiving. Release habitual ways of holding. An incredible system to heal the body, restoratives stimulate the relaxation response, balancing nervous system, optimizing energy flow to the organs. Boost immune function & enhance digestion. Opening the body for deep healing, to repair & restore vitality.
Restorative Yoga is a internal practice, it benefits the mind & emotions as much as the outer body, if not more.
There is no muscular effort so tension & stress is gently released. This nourishing relaxation creates ease in the body. In this state you become aware of the body, coming home to your body, allowing it to abide in a place of rest, so the natural healing power of your life force can be refreshed & rejuvenated. Creating equilibrium & balance.
