All classes held online via Zoom. Restorative and Yin Yoga are both slo- moving practices with little movement. We will find our position, support ourselves with props and allow the body to sink into the posture while holding that posture for several minutes. These practices are done primarily on the floor rather than standing. Restorative yoga is intended to help the participant find rest and calm while quieting the mind and focusing on the breath. Yin yoga focuses on movements to support elasticity of the connective tissues. Props are necessary for these classes. You should have available to you a bolster (this could also be a firm pillow or a couch cushion); a strap (this could be the belt from a robe); 2 blocks (this could be two hardback books of about the same size and no dust cover--those make them slippery); and a fairly firm blanket, so not the kind you would snuggle on the couch with although you could have one of those also to use once you found your resting position.
