Gentle & Restorative
Most contemporary yoga is an active practice in which you move from pose to pose, building heat and increasing your strength and flexibility in equal measure. The general trend in yoga is toward more and more athletic and acrobatic styles of practice. Restorative yoga is something completely different. It's about slowing down and opening the body through passive stretching. If you take a restorative class, you may hardly move at all, doing just a few postures in the course of an hour. During these long holds, your muscles relax deeply. It's a completely different feeling from other types of yoga classes since props are used to support your body instead of your muscles. Restorative classes are very mellow, making them a good complement to more active practices and an excellent antidote to stress. In restorative yoga, props are used extensively to support your body so that you can hold poses for longer. Postures are usually adapted from supine or seated yoga poses with the addition of blocks, bolsters, and blankets to eliminate unnecessary straining.

Pranayama is one of the basic practices of yoga, though it is often neglected in exercise based yoga classes as taught in gyms and fitness centers. Prana means energy, life force or breath. Yama is translated as restraint, or control. When we work with our breath, we gain access to our life force energy.Pranayama is traditionally thought to be a much more powerful practice than asana and therefore some systems of yoga don’t introduce pranayama until some mastery of asana is attained. However, basic pranayama is accessible to the most beginner student, even those whose physical impairments and injuries prevent most asanas. In addition, pranayama is an access point to the subtler aspects of yoga and is tremendously helpful in developing body awareness, mindfulness, focus and stamina.
Yoga nidra & Deep healing yogic relaxation
Taught and created by Sri Dharma Mittra, our guided restorative session to help you break free from the stress of the noisy and restless world that maintains its presence in our bodies and minds at all times. This practice will allow you to take the time to let all the cells of your physical body, joints and organs de-stress and begin to find balance.
