Stretch & Restore is designed to help heal the effects of chronic stress due to our fast pace and busy lives. Classes will focus on a series of gentle floor stretches followed by restorative poses using bolsters, straps, and blankets. Special attention will be placed on alignment, and relaxation, through proper use of the breath. Restorative Yoga is used to trigger the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for balancing the body. By stimulating this system, you experience a lower heart rate and blood pressure. This also helps stimulate your immune and endocrine systems in healthy way. When you experience stress or feel overwhelmed, it is the parasympathetic nervous system that restores balance. The deep relaxation response elicited by restorative yoga also results in benefit to the internal organs.
Practicing poses using props provides a completely supportive environment for total “active relaxation”. The more your body is supported in the poses the deeper the sense of relaxation. Relaxation is a state where there is no movement, no effort, and the brain is quiet.
Restorative poses are sustained for longer periods of time (five to fifteen minutes); allowing the nervous system to be in a state of relaxation. It’s meditative but not meditation. It’s about opening your body, not stretching your body. Approximately 6 poses are practiced within the hour. Even those with an active yoga practice will benefit from the deep release of Restorative Yoga. The use of Essential Oils are used in the class.
The perfect class for those who are injured, stressed out, recovering from illness as in a cold or flu, recovering from surgery, or those who need a very gentle practice looking to regain quality of life they used to have but lost. Stressed out? Can't relax or shut it off? Can't she'd excess weight around your middle? Stress can be the reason! Then this class is for you! We will guide you through a series of static poses completely supported by props designed to help you unwind, distress, and relax. After class, you’ll feel better than when you arrived. Restorative is completey intended to heal broken bodies. This class is like a bubble bath with wine, candles, and soft music but on a yoga mat! Reducing stress from your life has a multitude of benefits from better sleep, lower blood pressure, and weight loss! Everyone will benefit from this class. Think of it as a sort of yoga spa experience.

Yin Yoga, is a gentle, quiet, and meditative practice that teaches us to relax and accept ourselves just as we are. All poses are done on the floor so that the muscles can relax and allow the deep connective tissues surrounding the hips, thighs, and lower back to be gently stretched.
Through mindful stretching, Yin Yoga maintains the health of the connective tissue and encourages free flow of qi (energy) in the body. Poses are held for longer periods of time (generally five minutes) and awareness is brought to sensations in the body.
Beginners to Advanced Yogi's are welcome! The Yin practice is a wonderful compliment to Hatha, golfers, body builders, running, cycling, tennis,equestrians, football or basketball, or other Yang activities. Especially those with an active yoga practice will benefit from the deep release of Yin Yoga . Essential oils are used in the class. All level.
