Restorative Yoga

Rejuvenate, Relax & Restore

"Restorative poses of being rather than doing." Judith Lasater

Restorative Yoga is a practice dedicated to deeply nourishing the body through mindfully resting the body and mind. The practice focuses on "being" rather than doing. An extensive range of yoga props(blocks, blankets, straps and bolsters) can be used to create a fully supported practice allowing the body to unwind passively and the mind to move towards stillness.

Restorative Yoga

Rejuvenate, Relax & Restore

What is Restorative Yoga?

 

Restorative Yoga is a series of poses designed to completely support the body in stillness to assist deep relaxation, healing, and rest. The body is held in the safety of a still and usually quiet room with props including bolsters, blocks, and blankets. This practice enhances the body's natural healing abilities to restore more efficiently and dissolves the residue of everyday stress. Restorative yoga poses are not about stretching the body, they are about opening to collect nourishment. Restorative Yoga is for anyone and can be a real good start into the yoga world.

 

It is of no surprise that the practice of Restorative Yoga is part of a growing body of evidence that reports myriad beneficial effects among those who suffer from PTSD. From decreased heart rate, lowered blood pressure, enhanced immune function and a reduction in depression and anxiety, survivors of trauma are discovering the healing power of yoga.

 

Recent studies also hint at Restorative Yoga’s ability to reduce stress and improve memory function and to improve the cognitive functioning of elderly nursing home residents. One multifaceted program that used meditation and restorative yoga succeeded in reversing some memory loss. Additionally, a small trial program in the UK that offered gentle yoga to caregivers and dementia sufferers together was both feasible for and well-received by participants.

With Rheumatoid Arthritis it is really important to try and have a daily exercise practice. We encourage movement through yoga as this can truly help reduce pain and inflammation in the joints. Restorative Yoga allows our Body, Mind, and Soul to unwind and creates internal peace and awareness. It is a slow practice that nourishes the body and allows it to deeply relax in postures that are often held around 5 minutes or more.

Just waking up and taking the first steps out of bed in the morning can be extremely painful for RA sufferers. Through movement and exercise the joints can ease in discomfort and slowly gain more flexion. These calming yoga postures also allow the body to move away from the fight or flight mode associated with incessant pain and step into an inner calm and a refreshed state. This calmer state in turn helps to improve digestion, which is heavily compromised in most people with RA.

Yoga is very effective in treating Varicose Veins It helps in alleviating pain and also prevents future attacks. Yoga stretching and relaxation techniques can be particularly beneficial for varicose veins. Certain positions, such this Restorative Yoga pose Legs Up The Wall promoting circulation and the drainage of blood from the legs. The deep-breathing exercises in yoga may further alleviate discomfort by getting more oxygen into the bloodstream. yoga is an effective protocol for preventing and treating varicose veins. The posture that is known to be clinically most effective in both cases is Sarvangasana, the Shoulder Stand. Where the legs are inverted and the pressure of gravity is reversed.

Shoulder Stands take a lot of practice time, along with guidance from a trained Yoga Guru (teacher). When you stand up, movement of these fluids in the legs is greatly improved.

There's only 

one thing

more precious

than our time

and that's who

we spend it on.

Spend it on those

that love unconditionally.

Don't waste it on those

that only love you

when the conditions 

are right from them

_DSC8831-1.jpg

Telling an abuse victim, especially a victim who has PTSD and a history of abuse, to "let it go," is, quite frankly, one of the most selfish and ignorant things you can do.

Remember, any event that is traumatic-even if it seems small to  you-may have triggered a lifetime's worth of memories for this person. Saying, "I am here for you," or "I may not know what you're going through, but I see and hear your pain and want to help" are much healthier alternatives. As survivors,

we have the distinct disadvantage of being alienated and misunderstood.

P T S D

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Symptoms

  • Flashbacks

  • Nightmares or difficulty sleeping

  • Feeling upset by things that remind you of what happened

  • Angry outbursts

  • Depression

  • Feeling worried, guilty or sad

  • Numbness

  • Feeling in danger

  • Sense of panic, jitteriness, being on edge

  • problems focusing/concentrating

  • Relationship problems

  • Trouble getting along with others

  • Feeling alone/sense of isolation

Trauma leaves survivors suffering from agonizing shame about the actions they took to survive and maintain a connection with the person who abused them. 

This compounds the two-fold experience of trauma survivors: emotional numbing through dissociation and forced emotional numbing due to the social norm that we have to "let it go," and "move forward" somehow. These are all very damaging and retraumatizing things for a trauma survivor to hear, as trauma can live in bodies as well as our minds for a lifetime. No one should be allowed to "compare" your trauma to another person's trauma. Everyone reacts to trauma differently and each reaction is valid based on the trauma and its impact on that person. Society must unlearn this idea that we should "get over" trauma as this only adds to the effects of emotional numbing and repression that causes so much damage to our hearts, minds and bodies.

Reactions

  • Avoiding places, things or sounds that remind you of what happened

  • Overworking to escape

  • Pulling away from people, avoiding them and isolating yourself.

Find What Moves You

Thursdays 7 pm

This class is designed to move students through a variety of standing, sitting, and supine postures. Each class follows some format of centering, breathing exercises, and warming up the body to allow students to go deeper into a sequence of yoga poses. These poses are intended to open the chest, hips, stretch out the back, thighs, and calf muscles while helping to calm the mind and the nervous system.  By integrating breath with movement, we begin to balance strength and ease both on and off the mat. This class is appropriate for all levels.
