women and men,
gentle reigns supreme
As the pace of modern life increases, so does the need for restorative yoga, which is more about stillness than strength, more about pausing than power.
In restorative yoga, gentle reigns supreme. Practitioners sink into postures like Child’s pose, Bridge, and Savasana, supported by bolsters and blankets for maximum comfort. It is a conscious manipulation of the nervous system to crate a state of relaxation in the body. It reminds the nervous system of being in the womb. When there is relaxation, it is no longer possible to be anxious.
In addition to reducing anxiety, restorative yoga lowers blood pressure and heart rate while increasing the body’s ability to digest, eliminate, and heal. For those who struggle with sleep, restorative yoga presents the ideal segue, encouraging the body’s natural ability to fall asleep and stay asleep.
Along with better sleep, restorative yoga practitioners often report benefits such as decreased frequency of migraines, easier menstruation, less reactivity, and enhanced well-being. To reap benefits such as these, the body needs to fall fully into physiological relaxation for at least 15 minutes. After 20 or more minutes of relaxation, it is noted that people begin to experience pratyahara, or introversion, the fifth of the eight limbs of yoga. It essentially means going inward, moving away from outside stimuli.
“It was an amazing experience to do yoga with Rachael. She guides with soft and powerful energy. I felt held by her energy and my breath and body could dance together. After yoga with Rachael, I felt as if I had created my own heaven.”
