If you know me, then it goes without saying that you have been personally invited to take one of my restorative yoga classes or you may have even received a private session from me! Wherever, I go, I love sharing this practice with everyone I meet, because it is so...powerful!
One of the perks of restorative yoga is getting to use pretty much every prop imaginable and allowing your entire body to sink into and be supported by lot's of these blankets, pillows, and bolsters.
This is wonderful if you have access to a yoga studio that offers classes with these props. I love teaching at studios and I even have a small group set that I use for private workshops with clients at my office and in their homes and offices.
However, what happens if you like this practice so much but you don't have the props at home?
What if there are no yoga studios in your area that offer restorative yoga in the first place?
What if you want to develop your own practice so that you can have the amazing benefits of restorative yoga at your beck and call on a daily basis but you don't want to have to worry about bringing your props everywhere you go?
I created this class just for you so that you can practice restorative pretty much anywhere that you have a few pillows and a blanket and even more so if you are in the comfort in your own home. All you need is access to....your bed!
That's right. I laugh outloud as I share this because I think of how yummy, relaxing, and rejuvenating this practice already is and to think you can actually do it in your bed??! No, this is not too good to be true.
This practice is actually good for you! In a culture where we permeate society with the message of always needing to be doing something and constantly busying ourselves with work, entertainment, chores, and endless distractions, restorative yoga helps us to slow down, settle into stillness, and access what its like to be just be here now, without any pretenses.
