Can you think of the last time you were doing nothing? Literally doing nothing, allowing your body and mind to fully release? Today, so many of us are on a non-stop journey moving from one situation to the next that we have little if no opportunity to recharge our personal batteries, replenish our life force and rejuvenate our personal energy. Much like the technology that we surround ourselves with, without recharging, we too become susceptible to stress, run on empty and eventually are unable to function due to illness or fatigue.
Restorative yoga is helping many individuals learn a new practice of just being, just allowing, and dropping into profound surrender. This style of yoga permits active relaxation that allows individuals to lose all sense of time and place, through props, breathing and meditation. It allows for an opportunity to slow down from the inherent pace of life, to open the body gently, and bring the mind to a relaxed state. If you have not explored this form of yoga, you will find that it is yoga of being, rather than doing.
Unlike a traditional yoga session, this form of yoga invites you to move deeper into levels of relaxation through the use of props; blankets, pillows, bolsters, blocks, and more. The props provide support to create passive openings to the body and allow in self-renewal. Restorative yoga uses very little muscular effort and simply focuses on legging go, inviting the breath and mind to become more integrated with the body, and allow for healing and self-renewal to take place.
The art of self renewal is permission to love ourselves and honor the need to ensure our overall well-being and optimal health toward ourselves. Finding a way to continually replenish our energy is a gift to our body, mind and spirit and not only serves us, but everyone.
