A 30-hours Relax and Restore Intensive.


To 'rest', to 'relax' and to 'restore' is a natural vital process in our lives. Rest supports optimal physiological functioning and promotes healing and growth. During rest, one’s autonomic nervous system switches from sympathetic-dominance to parasympathetic-dominance, regeneration and restoration is accelerated. Research has shown that relaxation and rest is essential to everyone of all ages and culture, size and shape.

 

~ 'Deep rest is a precursor to meditation and stillness.' ~ Adelene Cheong

 

Why do we practice Restorative Yoga?

  • To replenish moments of depletion and fatigue at every level
  • To live with capacity for greater awareness and equanimity
