Restorative Yoga Online via Zoom

Restorative Yoga utilizes a variety of props such as bolsters, blankets, and blocks to support the body and allow the breath to move freely, encouraging the muscles to relax the mind to quiet. Within a short time, this practice encourages you to become submerged in a deeply relaxed state and drop into the silent space within.
Ready, Set, Restore & Renew.

Ideal for this class is music found on Insight Timer, it’s a free meditation app, which happens to have mindful music. Download the app: “Insight Timer”.
