The Need for Groundwork
Restorative Yoga is an antidote to the busyness syndrome that conspires to build more stress, less rest in your daily life. Overtime, the stress response can run wild and create obstacles in the mind and body , possibly leading to health issues, such as high blood pressure, digestive upset, hormonal imbalances, or chronic muscular tension. A yoga practice abundant in gentle and supportive postures, calming breathing exercises, and guided relaxation techniques stimulates the Parasympathetic Nervous System, inviting you to slow down and more easily rest, digest, and rejuvenate your mind and body.
