Yoga Therapy is a simple, natural practice that brings us to our true nature.
Yoga practises are an ideal way to release our bodies from the discomforts, countering the wear and tear we undergo due to modern lifestyles.
Our bodies house our memories and emotions. Through postures, breath awareness and meditative techniques you will explore the relationship between our subtle (thoughts and feelings) and physical body. To release old patterns and creating new space.
Being at home in the body is being deeply connected to our heart and mind.
Our bodies reflect our hearts, are shaped in large degree by our minds ‘and feel’ our thoughts and emotions before the mind even realizes them.
Restorative Yoga enables great physical and psychological changes, contributing towards healing for many people.
In this pressured world, we rarely give our body a chance to settle back into equilibrium after a period of intense activity or anxiety. As a result, the body becomes flooded by stress hormones. This leads to a build up of toxins and it this becomes normal to our nervous system, which in turn keeps us in a state of readiness.
“Like leaving your car engine running all the time”, it’s the same with our body.
With practice, we allow mind and body to find a natural state of balance rather than “revved up and raring to go”.
The Yoga practices designed to provide a restful and restoring experience, come into their own when a person has reached a point of deep fatigue or simply feeling fragile. A regular Yoga session would give our body a chance to rest and begin to heal in a way that can never be achieved by lying down in front of the TV and “resting” because we’re tired.
Or simply put “active relaxation”.
The emphasis is on relaxation and rest – but not sleep!
