Join guest teacher Kenny Takade, RYT -500, CMT, NCBTMB for a deep and delightful experience combining two deep healing practices.
Restorative yoga is a supported practice that allows the participant to hold postures for up to 20 minutes. The idea is to support the body with props like bolsters, pillows, sandbags, yoga straps, and blankets after being guided into positions that mimic shapes you would do in yoga. The placement of these props allows the body to naturally relax into the pose. The goal is to calm down the nervous system and to allow the body to rest and heal itself. Massage accomplishes the same thing but through the use of the healing touch. Deeper release of what is held within the corporal body can be brought out by the compression and release of muscles and gentle assisted movement. The restorative practice helps prepare the receiver for a deeper experience by engaging the parasympathetic nervous system which governs the internal organs and digestive system and inhibits or slows high energy function. By doing so, the body is already in state of relaxation and this allows the power of touch to take healing experience further. The combination of restorative yoga and massage is a potent, healing tool for the one giving and the one who receives it.
