Restore your energy.

Recharge your pranic batteries.

Can you hear your body, mind and spirit calling for deep relaxation?

Join the circle for a deep relaxation practice that helps relieve the effects of chronic stress. The antidote to stress is relaxation. To relax is to rest deeply and rest is different from sleep. Relaxation is a state of mind in which there is no movement, no effort and the brain is quiet the complete opposite of what we experience throughout our full days. Restorative yoga can help us reach this place of stillness, deep rest and energetic recharge by simply placing the body in a comfortable position and gently focusing our attention on our breath.

Restore your energy as we come into the festive season for yoga teaches us that our bodies are permeated with energy. Prana, the masculine energy resides above the diaphragm, moves upwards and controls respiration and heart rate. The feminine energy, apana resides below the diaphragm moves downwards and controls the function of the abdominal organs. Restorative yoga balances these two aspects of energy leaving you neither over stimulated nor depleted.

Recharge your pranic batteries with a complete physical body unwind using props to fully support your body. Gently moving the spine in all its directions releasing tension around the hips. Feel the replenishing benefits of poses that alternately stimulate and soothe the organs through closing and then opening the body squeezing blood out then allowing fresh blood to flow through. Completing the practice with an inverted pose can inspire you with a new perspective while flushing your lymphatic system. Finish with a long quiet savasana.

 

 

 

Testimonials

“Thank you Margot. The Autumn restorative yoga intensive today was the most peaceful, relaxing, opening one I have participated in. The music, the poses, your awesome and informative narrative and instruction were lovely. My spine feels longer, I felt my breathe and electric energy throughout my body, felt myself melt into the floor and my mum said I looked slimmer when I got home. Amazing. Thank you.” Sharna Stone
