With Claudette Evans and Chiara Guerrieri
February 18-20, 2022
In Person – Phinney Ridge Studio
Restorative yoga and pranayama is a strong tool for regulating your nervous system (i.e. feeling less stressed), calming chronic pain, and getting better sleep.
It’s so easy to burn out. Many of us spend so much of our time working, caretaking, and being productive that we end up feeling depleted. In an effort to feel better, we may turn to behaviors that leave us feeling even more spent. Sleep can become challenging, anxieties can ramp up, and relationships may feel strained. Can you relate?
This Restorative Intensive is an act of radical self-care! Restorative yoga practice uses passive poses supported by cushions and blankets to coax you into a greater sense of ease so that your body can recharge your batteries. In addition to the restorative sessions, you can up level your understanding of the Anatomy and Physiology of the respiratory system, understand a variety of restrictive patterns and try some ways to restore more freedom in breathing.
Come to this workshop to be nourished and soothed. Please arrive fed and dressed in warm, comfy clothing.
No previous yoga experience necessary.
