The class is designed for all levels with modifications offered to take the class at your own level and ability on any given day.

Restorative yoga is a form of yoga that seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of bolsters and props. The use of props makes it easier for you to maintain balance while you are stimulating and relaxing your body.
Restorative aerial yoga is a practice that utilizes the hammock, hovering 12 inches off the ground, as well as blocks, bolsters and blankets to fully support each pose that we move into. We will stay in each pose for approximately five minutes allowing the body, mind and emotions to unite, giving us time to stretch and explore how we feel and what we feel. Restorative aerial yoga relaxes our nervous system, improves quality of sleep, slows the heart rate, reduces blood pressure, relieves tension held in the body, improves range of motion and flexibility, it stimulates lymph flow and soothes the emotional body. Come and make the shift from your sympathetic (fight or flight) nervous system and into your parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system.
