Breathing incorrectly means our cells are not nourished, or de-toxifying properly. Our sleep is disturbed, poor emotional responses and behavioural rigidity. We can have cravings, low libido, heart issues, feel fatigued, and often be unwell - catching that "bug" thats going round.

The Art of Relaxation - Restorative Yoga
LEARNING HOW TO DE-ACCELERATE and RESET THE NERVOUS SYSTEM
4 WEEK WORKSHOP
We live in a time where most of us have become disassociated from the important signals from our body. A form of somatic amnesia, where we rely heavily on the brain and the thinking mind, but cut ourselves off from the body. Often feeling overwhelmed we disconnected from ourselves, consciousness, divinity and our true nature.
Restorative Yoga cultivates the art of body-mind integration ,slowing down, deep listening, and breathing freely - extremely important, as your breath is linked to your energy body. Any area in the body where there is chronic tension or poor circulation will have a reduced capacity for cellular respiration, so an inefficient exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between tissues and organs.
With the use of a wide range of props it allows you to access, open up and release areas of bodily tension. Harnessing the breath in the process will deepen the release leaving you feeling more spacious and rested.
In this Restorative Yoga workshop you will learn;
*To create total ease and comfort in your body in order to deeply relax and release
*To train your nervous system in becoming more resilient
*To move from sympathetic functioning to parasympathetic - slowing down is waking up
*How this practice can create a foundation for mental, emotional and physical health
*What the key elements of a Restorative Practice are and how to achieve this at home.

The Big Relax
a special session for private groups
RESTORE, RENEW, REJUVENATE
Restorative Yoga is the antidote you need to feeling nurtured, relaxed and deeply rested. Blankets, bolsters and blocks support the body whilst you learn to breath in ways that strengthen and sooth, support and enhance your health and well being.
You will use the breath to clear you head, release layers of physical tension and hit the reset button on your nervous system.
By becoming more mindful of your breath and how it affects you, an added bonus is you will learn breathing techniques that help to dissolve that back pain, anxiety, stress or sleepless nights. No previous experience necessary.
If you have a group of people/work colleagues/a wedding party and would like me to hold one of these especially for your group, please get in touch.
I've recently completed a four week "Restorative Yoga" Course with Just Breathe. It was one of the most nurturing things I think I've ever done for myself!
Gabrielle is wonderfully supportive and knowledgeable. I'd highly recommend these classes for anyone, regardless of whether you've had yoga experience or not.
