Restorative yoga is used to trigger the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for balancing the body. By stimulating this system, you experience a lower heart rate and blood pressure. This also helps stimulate your immune and endocrine systems in healthy way. When you experience stress or feel overwhelmed, it the parasympathetic nervous system that restores balance. According to Lasater, the deep relaxation response elicited by restorative yoga also results in benefit to internal organs.
We will incorporate breathing techniques (pranayama) to help bring an awareness to the breath and to quieten the mind.

A relaxing restorative yoga class which will involve breath work and visualisation, followed by a gong sound bath to support the process of self-healing.
A gong bath is a form of sound therapy where the gong is played in a therapeutic way to bring about healing in the body.
It is a very effective way of stimulating the natural good feeling of the body and most often leaves the recipient grounded with an indisputable sense of well-being.
The experience is often likened to ‘being massaged all over’ by those who are sensitive as they feel their skin tingle and deeper sensations as the waves of sound vibrate through the body and trigger a tangible release of tensions. Often during a gong bath, a deep sense of neutrality is felt and nerve rejuvenation is achieved.
