Restorative Yoga is a floor-based practice of steadiness and ease. You will use blocks, bolsters, and blankets to sustain postures that facilitate ultimate relaxation and release. This form of yoga aims to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which supports immune function, stress relief, and balanced regulation of all bodily functions. Restorative practice is preventative and healing, as well as an ideal complement to more fiery yoga practices. It is also perfect for those experiencing anxiety, depression, insomnia, fatigue, and digestive issues. Wear comfortable clothes and dress warmly!
Generally speaking, gentle-style yoga classes attempt to serve a variety of distinct needs: people with movement limitations, or profound stiffness due to lack of activity; relief from disabilities and chronic conditions e.g., arthritis, back pain and other musculo-skeletal issues; recovery from surgery, illness or injury; for seniors, new practitioners, women who are pregnant and those seeking stress-reduction or weight management. A gentle yoga approach has even been found to be an important compliment in programs to reverse heart disease or provide relief from the challenging conditions of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, as well as mood disorders.

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is also called “The Yoga of Awareness.” In the practice of Kundalini Yoga most of the postures are done with the eyes closed. We turn our attention inwards, focusing on the many subtle layers of the body and mind. We begin to unfold slowly, and recognize WHO WE TRULY ARE at the core of our being. Kundalini energy is a cleansing, purifying, detoxifying energy that is latent in all of us.
