The overall goal of Restorative Yoga is to support students for complete rest of the body and mind with the intention to help the students release deep habitual tension, balance the nervous system and develop the skills of conscious relaxation. Restorative Yoga helps create balance, quiet and restore rasa.
Restorative Yoga turns off the sympathetic nervous system, (fight or flight) needed for the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) to kick in. The relaxation response facilitates lowering blood pressure, decreasing respiration and relaxing muscle tension while increasing blood flow to the vital organs. This improves digestion, fertility, growth, repair, circulation and immune function.
Restorative Yoga has been documented to help with relaxation:
• Increasing breath and its capacity; increase circulation and detoxification; increase digestion and elimination
• Manage and relieve disease symptoms; relieve pain, improve recovery time; balance overall energy
• Support nourishing sleep; lift moods; release our over-identification with disease
• Helps us regain a sense of control; reconnect with ourselves, families and communities;
• Helps with remembered wellness
Restorative Yoga is for everyone. Students should bring a mat, blanket and pillow to class with them. For additional information contact Mary Ann at 203-762-8384 ext. 282
