Join Nicole from Go Slow Yoga for 2 hours of deeply nourishing Restorative Yoga and experience deep rest. This workshop will suit anyone seeking true rest in their lives.
But what is restorative yoga? Restorative yoga is a practice of yoga where there is no doing, instead students are cradled, cushioned & supported by yoga props such as bolsters, blankets and cushions, where they comfortably rest for up to 15 minutes. When we pause here, comfortably to rest, we cultivate conditions for the body’s parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest response) to come into dominance. It is this space of rest that the systems of our body require if they are to regulate and restore themselves and it is also where we can heal.
In this workshop we will begin by gently preparing the body through accessible, slow movement and breathing practices suitable for all levels of experience, including those who have never practiced yoga before. The conditions will then be created for you to rest, completely supported, as you are gently guided through accessible restorative yoga postures.
This workshop would suit anyone seeking deep rest in their lives as well as those experiencing stress, insomnia & fatigue including those managing chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), adrenal fatigue and parents experiencing postnatal depletion.
No experience is necessary and all bodies are welcome however spaces are limited.
Total yoga novice! (I) came in exhausted (young kids and renovating our house). I left feeling genuinely refreshed and re-energized. Nicole was so welcoming and helpful to all, whether we were newcomers or old hands. I highly recommend Nicole and her work. – Ariadne Lack, Psychologist.
