Modern lifestyle tends to leave us in a constant state of stress and exhaustion. Yoga, with its rich history and practice, has proven to be a valuable resource in the fight against burnout and stress. In this course we will consider what stress actually is and how to recognize its signs in daily life. Restorative poses are generally lying down, supported by props that offer comfort and ease. Downshifting the nervous system remains at the heart of the practice, which lends itself to the search for self and meaning. In Restorative Yoga, the general rule is ‘less is more’. We hold the pose for a nice length of time which give time for shifting the nervous system towards ‘rest and digest’, supported postures allow time to gradually release muscular tension bringing about the relaxation response so necessary for rejuvenation, balance and a sense of wellbeing. Each class begins with an introduction and short talk and then meditation and breathing exercises, and concludes with guided body scans. This course will be taught in English. No prior experience in yoga required - no flexibility required. We will be on the floor lying and sitting on soft wool mats and we use bolsters, blankets and props to support your body in various positions.
