Restorative yoga for stress workshop @triyoga Chelsea.

I absolutely love restorative yoga!

When my mind is so active and fidgety that I cannot meditate and pranayama just adds extra irritation, restorative yoga is my go to practice.
Simply by placing your body in certain positions you can slow the heart rate, breathe deeper and allow the parasympathetic nervous system (rest & digest) to become dominant.
We can also activate the sympathetic nervous system when we need more energy, check out my NHS Yoga for mental health client in the picture above, her first full inversion!  
I've trained with Dr Roger Cole, Judith Lasater and have developed some techniques of my own as over the years it's been a vital tool for me in rehabilitating my chronic neck condition and the stress that came with it.
In my workshop next Friday the 14th of July 19.30-21.30 @triyoga Chelsea you'll learn the principles of restorative yoga techniques, how it affects the nervous system and how we can adapt the postures so that we can practice at home without bolsters, brick and belts.
