RESTorative Yoga Practice - Online

With Adelene Cheong

Adelene will teach a guest series of four online Restorative Yoga classes for Delight Yoga.  Restorative Yoga is a relaxation practice to support conscious deep rest, where we allow stillness and the props to do the ‘talking’.

Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there.

- Deepak Chopra

- Patanjali

"Healthy plants and trees yield abundant flowers and fruits. Similarly, from a healthy person, smiles and happiness shine forth like the rays of the sun."
