In a restorative yoga practice, we open the aperture of our awareness, and we access a state of potency. Through lecture, group discussion, and practicum you will learn how to guide yourself and others into a deeper state of being.
Pathways to this deeper state include supported postures, pranayama, and meditation; the nervous system is regulated, our endocrine (hormonal) system is activated, and we are able to rest and digest life. Measurable results of relaxation include reduction of blood pressure, anxiety, muscle tension, and fatigue. These states are also show to improve immune function, digestion, strengthen the vagal tone, increase heart rate variability, and regulate the nervous system.
