Join Certified Yoga Practitioner AnnMarie Wolf and Certified Meditation Coach Stef Bourke for this gentle yoga practice that blends restorative and yin poses, enhanced by the soothing sounds of singing bowls and voice.
Restorative yoga is gentle, supportive, and therapeutic. At its core, restorative yoga is a practice of passive healing that enables the calming of the “fight, flight, freeze “stress response of the sympathetic nervous system and activates the parasympathetic “rest, digest, healing” part of the nervous system. This style of yoga “restores” the body to its parasympathetic nervous system function, which, in turn, helps the body rest, heal, and restore balanced homeostasis. Yinstorative applies the restorative philosophy to Yin poses by propping them more to allow longer held very restful poses.
This Yinstorative workshop is a deeply restful experience during which we use our yoga practice to help us turn inward. Energetically, this is a time for softness and reflection. A time to turn our attention inwards and reflect on what’s truly happening with our emotional and mental landscape. A time to quiet things down so we can listen to our own inner voice, wisdom, and set our intentions with mindfulness and integrity.
One of the most powerful energies of Yinstorative Yoga is the energy of stillness. An experience that invites us to create space for simply being. Yinstorative guides us into the rest and reflection essential for our growth and wellbeing.
Why add Sound?
The vibrational frequencies of sound healing instruments like crystal bowls have the ability to move through skin, fluid, and bones of the body, creating a full body relaxation and recalibration down to the level of the cellular structure. The experience creates an environment of “resonance” within the body.
