Restorative Yoga in Downtown Vancouver
The busy-ness of everyday life can leave our Nervous Systems fried and frazzled. Pile on inconsistent Diets, Repetitive Strain, overstimulation from noise and light, Sleep Deprivation, and lack of (or sometimes too much) exercise, and our bodies become burned out and depleted. Restorative Yoga is an opportunity to let your body sigh. It calms your Nervous System. It allows peace and quiet in our busy world. Our Yoga Instructors use Bolsters, eye pillows, sandbags, blankets and blocks to unweight your body and allow areas that are strained and compressed to let go and feel relief.
This type of Yoga can be helpful for those suffering from Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, Post-Concussion Syndrome, Headaches, Migraines, and Nerve Damage. It is also useful for those who simply need to slow down.
Restorative Yoga focuses on gentle movement, restful supported yoga poses, breath and meditation. The sessions teach you how to get into and out of the yoga postures safely and how to customize the yoga postures to fit your unique body shapes and needs.
