Jenn Gerber will teach a blissful restorative yoga class January 7th from 4:00 -6:30 pm.
Restorative yoga takes you through a process that slowly deepens allowing you to release and relax even more with each pose.
It is a gentle therapeutic style of yoga that uses props to support the body to deepen the benefits of the poses. It is a soothing and nurturing practice that promotes the effect of conscious relaxation.
The development of the poses is credited to B.K.S. Iyengar, of Pune, India, author of the contemporary classic “light On Yoga” and numerous other books. Iyengar’s early teaching experience showed him how pain or injury can result from a student straining in a yoga pose; he began to experiment with props modifying poses until the student could practice without strain. Iyengar also explored how these modified poses could help people recover from illness or injury. It is because of his creativity that the restorative poses, most of which have been developed or directly inspired by him, are such powerful tools to reduce stress and restore health.
This class is limited to 6 participants.
