Restorative Yoga with Nelly
May 11, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$15.00
Designed to combat the mental and physical repercussions of everyday stress. Still the mind, increase balance and capacity for healing, boosts immune system functions, and deeply relaxes the body to alleviate built up stress.
A meditative form of yoga with a focus on breathwork and longer-held poses. More relaxed, passive, and slow-paced, allowing the body tissue to rest and recover. Restorative yoga releases mind-body tension by moving at a slower, more-relaxed pace that allows the body tissues to rest and recover. Props, such as blocks, straps, and bolsters, may be used to support your pose with ease to achieve relaxed comfort.
Restorative yoga works with the parasympathetic nervous system, which targets our response to stress in the body. Slow poses paired with breathwork can slow down the heart rate while increasing blood flow to your vital organs.
CLASS LENGTH: 60 minutes
