The current culture encourages us to disconnect, seek without, over-stimulate, push through, and just keep going. In this workshop we’ll hold space to balance out that overwhelm with slowing down, drawing within, reconnecting, and doing what feels best for you in the moment. Doesn’t that sound amazing?!
Join Brye for a quiet break from the active and fiery energy of summer to be in stillness and nourish your entire being. We will begin with a breathing and meditation practice, followed by a brief and slow warm-up. After gently awakening the body, we will come into stillness – finding 6-8 postures for 5-7 minutes at a time. The poses will all be on the floor and supported by as many props (blankets, bolsters, blocks) as you need to feel completely comfortable, passive, and relaxed.
Restorative yoga gently relaxes deeper muscle and connective tissues than active yoga practices, releasing tensions you may not even be aware of through a practice of surrender and trust. It can also balance the energy of the body, calm the mind, and help reset the nervous system. Intentionally carving out time for yourself in this way can have profound and healing effects on physical, energetic, and emotional levels. This gentle and deeply inward practice can also help you balance with the outward pull of summer – to maintain your energy and embrace all its abundant offerings.
All levels and physical abilities welcome!
