Restorative & Reiki | Landing within
This session is intended to be a rejuvenating and restful experience blending the therapeutic modalities of restorative yoga, reiki healing and soothing pranayama practices.
During this class you will be thoughtfully guided through a restorative sequence and offered the chance to completely surrender and rest into the trusted support of bolsters, blankets, and blocks.
My intention for this extended two-hour class is that you leave our time together feeling held, cared for and deeply nourished from within.
Restorative yoga is incredibly therapeutic on a cellular, physical, and emotional level. It specifically works to help soften and unwind your physical body while rebalancing the nervous system and working towards creating a calm and supportive internal environment.
Reiki (a form of energy medicine) and soothing pranayama practices woven throughout will help promote a more profound sense of relaxation and harmony.
It’s suggested to wear comfortable clothing and to dress and layers — as the body goes into the liminal state of deep rest and can tend to cool down. If you enjoy using an eye pillow, bring that along as well.
