We will bring the benefits of restorative yoga poses and sound meditation into one unified experience in this special monthly class. Please wear your most comfortable clothes and bring your own pillow(s) and blankets. A limited number of yoga mats and props, such as blocks, will be available but if you would like to use your own, please bring them. The floor can feel chilly in the winter months. Extra layers and warm socks are always good.
Benefits of restorative yoga and sound meditation include:
- Reduces stress, tension, and anxiety.
- Balances body and nervous system energy.
- Stimulates removal of toxins.
- Promotes body, mind and spirit harmony.
- Enhances your flexibility.
- Invites deep relaxation.
- Boosts the immune system.
- Develops qualities of compassion, loving kindness, and understanding toward others and self.
- Encourages good self care habits.
- Improves mood states.
Science has confirmed that these practices can directly affect mood, brain waves, the nervous system and body chemistry. The vibrations of gongs, singing bowls, flutes, and percussion instruments stimulate the body to help produce the alpha waves that are present in the brain in deep relaxation. As you ease into each restorative yoga pose, the sounds will support you, inviting deep connections with your breath, body, mind and spirit.
