Focus: Initially this class works with poses that help to release and relax the abdomen and diaphragm region. These positions are commonly relaxing on both a physical and mental level. They make an ideal perspective for watching the breath. Breath awareness is the primary focus in this class. You will be guided in how to observe you breath in supported standing poses, reclining leg stretches, passive chest opening poses and inversions.
The latter part of this restorative class is devoted to lying still in savasana, and deepening your breath with ujjayi pranayama. Pranayama is touched on in both lying and sitting positions. This will be a great class for rejuvenation and stress relief.
