Gentle Classic Restorative Yoga
I prefer to think of it as a habit of resting before I get tired—as opposed to being lazy.
Our body is infinitely intelligent, and it knows exactly how to heal itself—inside and out.
Restorative Yoga Practice is a scheduled pocket of time and space for our bodies to restore, re-set, remember, and re-connect with this intelligence.
Most of us feel busy and rushed on a daily basis, and this 'hustle and bustle' can be very taxing on our nervous systems. As a result, we feel fried and tired.
But when we feel stress and overwhelm, offering our bodies a safe & slow space to rest is all we have to 'do' in order to cultivate a greater sense of'being'.
This gentle and subtle practice is powerful, simply because it allows all of the systems in our body the time they need to rest, heal, and restore.
Restorative Yoga acts like an catalyst—allowing us to reach a deep state of 'being' in a relatively short amount of time.
When we are able to access this state, we remember that everything is interconnected—and that is why I love this practice.
Restorative Yoga reminds us that we are never alone. We are all part of the same energy, and we always will be.
When we remember this, our bodies begin to self-regulate—allowing for better sleep, improved health, less suffering, and an overall feeling that everything is happening exactly as it should be.
Restorative Yoga benefits every body. You don't need to be flexible, or even have any previous yoga experience in order to begin. Plus, once you have the basic postures, you can practice on your own.
Amber has been practising Gentle Restorative Yoga for many years as a method of self regulation, and truly believes in the power of these subtle postures.
She holds a BA and a MA degrees in Sociology, and is a certified restorative yoga teacher—honoured to have assisted Nevah Wendy Eyton's ongoing FOUNDATION and LEVEL 2 Restorative Yoga Teacher Trainings.
