Melissa will guide you through restorative postures while Sandi gives each student the benefits of Reiki. With the fast pace of life today, it is common for the sympathetic nervous system to be on overdrive and for our bodies to stay in a constant state of heightened alert. Our bodies do not know the difference between stress created from work and actual danger, such as the threat of an attack by a bear. In order to restore, the body needs to be able to relax and return to the parasympathetic nervous system. Restorative yoga poses support the muscles and bones with props so that they can relax. As a result, the nervous system send less messages to the brain, the mind quiets, and the body returns to the parasympathetic nervous system. This lowers the heart rate, reduces blood pressure and slows down the breath. Generally restorative poses relieve stress by taking students into a deep state of relaxation. It also stimulates and soothes organs and improves concentration. A restorative practice is excellent for calming and grounding.  

This class will be 90min-2 hours depending on the size of class. Pre registration is required.
