Keep Calm and Carry On Through the Holidays with Restorative Yoga
Stay calm, balanced and grounded through the holiday craze this season with a Restorative Yoga on Friday evenings at the TYC. Restorative Yoga is the practice of using props to completely support the body in a handful of therapeutic positions, gently releasing tension in the body while giving the mind and nervous system a chance to rest and unwind.
During the holidays (technically a time of year when we should all be staying in and resting more) our nervous systems tend to stay on overdrive, keeping us in a near continual state of flight, fight or freeze (a.k.a. stress). It’s hard to be cheerful when you’re stressed out! Regulating the breath, quieting the mind and completely relaxing the body, restorative yoga is one of the greatest tools for fighting holiday stress.
The holidays are meant to be enjoyed. Slow down, step out of the chaos every now and then, and take a few deeper breathes. Restorative Yoga on Friday evenings is your invitation to take the necessary time out and turn your attention inward – a break from the sensory overload of the holidays – and allow your nervous system to rest as you recharge your holiday spirit.
