We will engage in deeper discussion about Yoga as well as practical experience; learn the correct movements and postures in a step by step process!

RESTore w Alicia B

 

What is ReSTORE w Alicia B?

This class is a blend of Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra. In this practice you will experience stillness in poses and breath. Your body is supported so that muscles no longer need to contract to hold the body in place. All systems of the body are supported and nourished. hot stones placed on specific Marma points (Ayurveda energy meridians) and areas we commonly hold tension encourage a deeper letting go and relaxation response

It takes the average person about 15 minutes to shift from sympathetic (fight or flight) to parasympathetic (rest, repair & digest) functioning, therefore the poses are held long enough to engage this response

Scientific studies show that both Yoga Nidra and Restorative Yoga break habitual patterns of holding and tightness, reduce responses caused by stress, reduce blood pressure & blood sugar levels, reduce fatigue, improve sleep, alleviates chronic pain, support adrenal function, stimulate thyroid function, aid in recovery of muscle tension and repair

Poses moves spine in all directions supporting a heathy spine. Restorative active poses awaken dull areas of body, boost circulation and promote healing while passive poses induce deeper relaxation response and recuperation.

Powerful psychological benefits assisting with anxiety, depression and PTSD. Relaxation of the sensory motor cortex of brain clears the energy in neuropathways and is like a massage to the brain. 20-30 min of Yoga Nidra is said to equate to 3 hours of sleep
