Restorative Yoga

Self Care

During a Minnesota summer we revel in the beautiful weather, we garden and do yard work, we bike, run, hike, golf–many activities that our bodies are not yet used to. All the while, we are also keeping up with our jobs, families, and everyday tasks. Summer is the perfect time to consider adding a relaxing self-care routine into your schedule. Give yourself time to recharge your batteries–it only takes an hour; or even better, dedicate two or three hours in your week for Restorative Yoga classes.

Why?

While you relax, your body has a chance to heal what needs to be healed; you balance the activity of the day, your physical and mental vital energy is recharged, you learn to listen to and trust your body, and… inspiration arises. This is not just “adding another thing to your schedule”, it actually creates more time and energy for you to enjoy your other life activities!  

Restorative Classes and Mini-Retreats

The benefits of practicing Restorative Yoga are many! A restorative yoga practice:

  • relieves pain and anxiety
  • restores your body’s energy
  • helps with adrenal fatigue (or other chronic illnesses that are due to a chronic lack of energy and stress)
  • restores mental balance

Your Yoga Community…
At the end of a class, take your time when you get up and put away your props.  While your yoga practice is like a solo flight, you’re in a class with a group of others–your squadron; this is the special uniqueness of practicing in a dedicated yoga studio. Feeling part of a community is an essential need of for all of us. In fact, a recent publication of Blue Cross Blue Shield reports that loneliness is on the increase and is a source of the rising cases of clinical depression and anxiety. Minnesota is one of the states most affected by it. Here’s an article on this by Dr. Mercola.
