Be prepared to learn some anatomy and physiology along with a comprehensive selection of Restorative Yoga Poses you can bring into your Gentle Yoga mat classes.
The Intention of a Restorative Yoga Practice is to promote maximum relaxation of the SNS so that the PNS can be activated.
After this workshop you’ll understand:
How To inhibit the SNS (i.e. quiet the brain):
- withdraw as much sensory stimulation as possible (including stretching)
- use head down postures
- maintain darkness
- keep warm
- quiet the breath consciously – The heartbeat slows on exhalations and speeds on inhalations; lengthen exhale in centering breath
How To activate PNS, slow heart rate: (more info in Spirit Section)
- light pressure on eyeballs (eye pillows and head wraps)
- head down postures
This Workshop ends with a Restorative Yoga class which will tie together all the concepts presented in the Workshop.
