Certified Yoga Instructor, Donna Dickey, will gently lead you through a series of relaxing postures designed to help you slow down and nourish yourself. Licensed Massage Therapist, Julie Accorti, will also be offering hands on touch through therapeutic massage.
Donna offers hands-on instruction through adjustments, alignment and massage. She is an inspiring teacher known for her calm and creative approach to making yoga accessible to all of her students. Her classes promote inner peace, gratitude, self-love and compassion.
Restorative Yoga uses yoga props to assist and support the body in positions of ease and comfort to facilitate relaxation and improve overall health. This is a practice of deliberate stillness and it requires zero muscular effort. Stillness itself is a powerful practice.
In this gentle practice, we will settle into supported floor poses (legs up the wall, gentle twists, supported forward folds and back bends, and slight/supported inversions) for intervals of 5-15 minutes while allowing our bodies and mind to release tension, tightness, stress and pain. Gentle yet deep breathing is encouraged while you allow gravity to ground you towards the steadiness of the earth. This practice offers deep relaxation and a total mind and body reset. Our nervous system is stimulated when we are able to slow down, pause, and relax into these poses, which promotes a sense of well being, including reducing stress, slowing your heart rate and breath, fights depression and insomnia and increases blood flow to your vital organs.
Restorative Yoga is safe and appropriate for all levels, including those new to yoga and those recovering from injury or illness.
We invite you to come and give yourself permission to create space for release in your body, mind and soul.
