Relax and restore. De-stress and begin the healing process.
Evening Yin-Restoraive yoga is a balance for those who
physically work hard or who are under stress and cannot
manage the stress while involved in the activity of work.
Evening Yin-Restorative Yoga opens the new student
to a way of finding rest, deeper than sleep. The efforts of
the class are to get the new student in touch with the
healing source within. Evening Yin-Restorative yoga
helps the experienced yogi to go deeper and
connect immediately to the Inner Source; offering a
balance for more rigorous yoga classes.
During deep relaxation, all the organ systems of the
body are benefited: One can reduce blood pressure,
lower syrum cholesterol, reduce blood sugar and
triglycerides. One can improve the overall inner
functions of the physical body by beginning to
focus on the creative mind thru the connection to
breath. Muscle tension can disappear, and you can
reduce the evenings of insomnia and generalized
fatigue. The Lymph glands are exposed to fluid
movement, the synovial fluid heats and bathes the
connective tissue of joints. These are physically
beneficial results of a restorative class.
At times this class follows traditional restorative
asanas. At other times the class aims at stretching
the muscles that seem to be the most neglected
on a body. By holding a stretching posture at
least one minute, the muscle permanently adapts,
if one continues to use that muscle. When holding
a joint in position for two and a half minutes the
synovial fluid heats, becomes more viscous and
emoilates the attaching soft tissue, thus hastening
repair of that joint area.
In Evening Yin-Restorative Yoga one practices
conscious breathing, which frees our brain from
lower thoughts and lifts it to mind, where the
presence is practiced; free of the regrets and
resentments of the past and free of worry of the future.
Evening Yin-Restorative Yoga: In this restorative
yoga class you can remain in a posture from three
to 15 minutes while lying on blocks, blankets
or yoga bolsters – passively allowing muscles to relax.
