Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga is an opportunity to deeply relax, rest and rejuvenate your body while releasing stress. With the support of props such as bolsters, blankets and blocks you are invited to rest in restorative yoga poses that allow the body to fully surrender, and let go. Restorative yoga is nourishing for the spine, organs, lymphatic system, digestive system, nervous system and circulatory system as gentle inversions are often incorporated to reverse the effects of gravity. Restorative yoga balances prana, the masculine energy in the upper body, and apana, the feminine energy in the lower body, so you are not overly stimulated or depleted but instead left feeling completely rejuvenated.

All of my Goddess Restore classes include Restorative Yoga.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra means conscious deep sleep or yogic sleep. It is a potent, ancient meditation practice. Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of inducing deep relaxation and stillness on a physical, mental and emotional level. If practiced on a regular basis, Yoga Nidra can also clear karmic patterns and negative impressions and imprint new positive intentions or a sankalpa into the practitioner.

At the beginning and end of your practice you are asked to create a heart centred intention that, when practiced on a regular basis, has the ability to manifest positive change in your life and well being. During your Yoga Nidra practice, which simply involves resting on your back in a supported savasana pose, you allow the teacher to guide your awareness through your body.

From here, you leave the waking state, go through the dreaming state of sleep and go into the deep sleep state yet remain fully awake. Therefore, Yoga Nidra invokes alpha, theta and delta brain waves. The experience of Yoga Nidra can leave you feeling rested, rejuvenated and absolutely Bliss Full! This practice is suitable for everyone and is especially beneficial for anyone suffering from anxiety, PTSD, and insomnia.

My Goddess Restore classes include Yoga Nidra as do some of my workshops.

Soma Yoga

Soma Yoga is an integration of Hanna Somatic Education, the work of Moshe Feldenkrais, The Tensegrity Repair Series and Hatha Yoga. It is a slow, gentle movement therapy I created that has profound effects on the body. In these classes I introduce embodied awareness, breath work, and slow therapeutic movements to increase your internal body perception so you may perceive your body from within. From this deeper, sensory knowing and awakened interoception, you will connect with areas in your body that hold pain, discomfort, and muscular tension. Then, with this neuromuscular movement re-education therapy, you may release these patterns of holding to regain your inherent state of grace and receive freedom in movement.

My Goddess Restore classes and specialty workshops include Soma Yoga. Please see Events for details.

Teen Yoga After School Pre-Registered Program for ages 12-18

Teen Yoga classes are an opportunity for students to move, rest and relax. In this supportive, non-competitive environment, students will have the opportunity to experience yoga poses, rest in restorative yoga postures and relax during a meditation technique called Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep. Calming strategies will be learned as well as breathing exercises and mudras or hand postures. This is the perfect class for busy teens who need some time to slow down and rest and for anyone working with anxiety and stress.

Classes are available at Arrive Yoga in Guelph.
