Restorative Yoga



Sunday Sessions on the Mat - one Sunday per month.

A tranquil, nourishing Yoga & Meditive practice to relinquish stress and encourage mindfulness, deepen self-awareness, quiet the mind and emotions develop a spiritual connection. Sublime Practices with Support and Stillness.


Restorative Yoga is a deeply nourishing practice that offers body, heart and mind a respite from the day to day obligations and responsibilities. The body rests in poses supported by props to unravel layers of tension, while awareness is drawn to intentional breath to ultimately bring a sense of quiet to the mind. Poses may include gentle heart-openers, twists, forward folds and an inversion. Benefits include deep relaxation, mental clarity, improved sleep, pain relief. Guided visualisation is also used to enhance wellbeing. This practice is appropriate and accessible for all students. We all get "burn out" from time to time, practicing mindful yoga and breathing along with tools of reflection to encourage positive behaviours and self-care will support your health and well ness in any situation.
