Enjoy the restful and rejuvenating effects of restorative yoga sessions over this retreat. Restorative yoga offers us a nurturing space where we can heal and balance our physical, mental and emotional selves more effectively. With the use of props, we are able to hold postures longer, giving us the benefits of deep relaxation. Through asana (posture), and pranayama (breathing), we learn to become more mindful in daily living. Restorative yoga offers overall support and healing to the nervous, lymphatic, hormonal, endocrine, cardio thoracic, digestive and immune systems in the body, which brings you back into harmony with your body’s natural rhythms. You will also learn the art of preparing a dosha balancing meal, that will take you from the hot days of summer into the transition of autumn. Be your own healer by learning how to incorporate the therapeutic properties of food, herbs and spices into your daily routine. Explore simple, yet effective Ayurvedic remedies for common complaints, using ingredients from your kitchen.
