Restorative Yoga from a student’s perspective:
Restorative yoga has bent around to meet my various needs at different times over the past 2 years. I am not a slight woman, nor a fit one, but restorative works for me and my body.
Those days where work is mentally tough, restorative is the place to rest my whirring brain/thoughts. It is my self-care to dedicate the time to ensure I end my day in a positive way and I leave feeling refreshed every time. At times where my body is feeling broken from, you know, general life, the supportive props of restorative help stretch and relax tight and achy muscles. I did restorative throughout my whole pregnancy up until the very very last week without an issue and looked forward to it every Thursday. I look back on the time as quite special as while you’re in the quiet room and in the present moment, you feel bub move around and can’t help but feel a loving connection.
Ness is amazing in the way that she supports your body as well as your mind. I would only have to mention the aches or pains to her and she would offer suggestions on how to adapt the positions to best support me. It’s the session where you can rock up to in old trackies, socks and a hoodie and just….be.
