Restorative Yoga + Face Massage 1st July

with Gerry + Nichi

Restorative yoga is a restful practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. If you take a restorative class, you may hardly move at all, doing just a few postures over the course of an hour.

Restorative yoga is a completely different experience than most other styles of yoga. It teaches us the power of rest and letting go.

What Is Restorative Yoga?

Restorative yoga is suitable for practitioners of all levels. By definition, restorative yoga is a restful practice that holds asanas for a longer duration using props like yoga blocks, blankets, and bolsters. It is a practice of deep relaxation that emphasizes the meditative aspect of yoga—the union of body and mind. Through the use of props for support, many of the postures are held without effort.

When the body enters a state of relaxation the mind can also consciously relax as tension is released from both body and mind. The only work that’s required on your part during a restorative yoga practice is to pay attention to your breath and become aware of any sensations or thoughts that may arise.

We are combining this practice with a Yamuna Face Massage so that you can relax more deeply. You will literally feel any tension melt away not only from your face but also from the rest of the body.

Gerry will lead an hour restorative practice and Nichi will then take you through the face rolling and into relaxation. She is one of a handful of yamuna face practitioners sharing this practice in the U.K. Balls will be provided. Please come to the session free of face make up. Yamuna face rolling improves circulation, plumps tissue, aids with lymph drainage and stimulates the facial bones.
