Restorative Yoga
With Juanita: Using body postures, breathing technique, and meditation, this class concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. This gentle class is ideal for beginners.

With Sati: Restorative yoga is often referred to as "active relaxation" and "restful yoga". Rest is different than sleep, conscious rest is in fact a form of meditation. One can be actively restful to reduce stress and experience profound bliss. Restorative yoga involves restful positions that activate the parasympathetic nervous system which stimulates the immune system and promotes health of the endocrine system. The use of inverted poses rearranges hormones and lowers blood pressure, as well as counter-balances the day-long effects of gravity on the body. Using basic props and hands on assistance, Sati will guide you through a handful of relaxing postures also engaging a deeply meditative state which can rejuvenate, realign, and renew your spririt and body.
