This Restorative Workshop is for those who want and need to fill themselves back up. Life can be pretty busy these days and overwhelming at times! That's why Mary Karsten and Jan Boettcher are teaming up to help restore balance and peace back into your life. Through a Restorative Yoga practice and the use of essential oils your senses will come alive as you sink into deep relaxation.
In Restorative yoga, the intention is to relax as far as possible into the postures, using as little physical effort as possible. The mind focuses on the breath in order to cultivate mindfulness and release tension from the body.
Restorative yoga stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which slows the heart rate, regulates the blood pressure and relaxes the body.
As such, Restorative yoga is considered particularly beneficial for those suffering from anxiety, insomnia or headaches, as well as other stress-related conditions. Restorative yoga is believed to boost the immune system and accelerate the body's natural healing process.
