Relax & Renew in our
Restorative Yoga Classes!
Saturdays 4:00pm- 5:30pm
Modern restorative yoga is derived from a yoga style that was invented by B.K.S. Iyengar, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest yoga masters in the world. Iyengar instructed his students to make use of props to perfect their poses, and his teachings became known as Iyengar Yoga, which provided the foundation for the development of restorative yoga. Later on, one of Iyengar's students, Judith Lasater, made restorative yoga a popular form of yoga around the world.
It is known that restorative yoga can activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which enables automatic control of the body. As such, the regular nervous system will be at rest, and the muscles will become more relaxed. Constant practice of restorative yoga will make your body less vulnerable to stress-related illnesses and help you achieve optimal health.
We use a variety of props like blankets, bolsters, straps, and blocks to completely support the body in a variety of poses. We hold many of the poses for 1-30 minutes. Some of the postures provide passive stretching and stimulate different areas of the body. Others are designed simply to allow pure, unqualified rest.

What to wear / bring with you:
Wear comfortable, form fitting clothing; not too loose, not too tight. Something that you would feel comfortable stretching in. If you have them, bring Yoga Mats, Blankets / Rolls, Blocks, 8ft- 10ft Straps with D-rings or clips, an eye pillow and towels. A limited number of mats, blocks, straps and blanket/rolls will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Alternatively, these items can also be purchased through our boutique.
Rentals will also be available for eye pillows, neck rolls, and extra thick organic cotton restorative yoga mats. Costs range from $1.00 for the eye pillow & neck rolls to $2.00 for the meditation pads.
ADVANCE SOUND WAVE MEDITATION
This is a meditation for those comfortable and accustomed to long periods of transcendental peace. This journey begins with a gong "bath", each participant will have the sounds of gongs wash over them. A "C" tuned gong (vibrating to OM) peeling away that which blocks us, centering us and opening the session, then an "F sharp" tuned gong (activating the thymus) to enhance immune capacity. Returning to comfortable positions for meditation we experience the singing crystal bowls with the addition of a
sacred rattle, chimes, bells, and the gongs for added dimension and depth of trance. I believe this is a session you won't want to miss, especially if you feel ready for a longer crystal bowls session. This session will last longer than the ones we are familiar with.
Afterwards, you can join in on the drum circle which will be on our lawn under the trees until 10:00pm. The cafe will also be open for wraps and drinks until 10:00pm.
