Rest + Restore: 2 Hour Restorative Practice

Mar 27, 2015 04:04PM
Nya Alemayhu is holding space for a restorative yoga practice from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, April 10 at Buddha B Yoga Center in NW. As we welcome the spring season and with it, an opportunity to cleanse and renew, restorative yoga is a wonderful addition to an existing practice or a journey into a new practice.

Restorative yoga is a quieting, supportive and deeply nourishing type of yoga. The practice uses props to support the body in comfort and ease which facilitates healing by releasing deeply held tension. Quite like the practice of savasana or yoga nidra, it is a meditative, receptive practice. When practiced regularly, restorative yoga helps to reduce anxiety, lowers blood pressure, improves digestion and immunity, healing from injuries and harmonizes the entire nervous system.

This practice has the theme of grounding and will address the benefits of aligning the root chakra, muladhara, where the seat of all spiritual energy lies. To restore something is to renew it or to bring it back to its natural state and so, we will be exploring what it means to restore things in our lives. This practice is suitable for everyone including beginners. Due to the quiet nature of the practice and the use of props, space is limited to 15 people.

Cost: $30. Location: Buddha B Yoga Center, 1115 U St., NW. Early registration is encouraged, as well as warm socks and an additional layer of clothing. Participants should also bring a journal and a pen. For more information, visit BuddhaBYoga .com or
