Restorative Yoga Class with Susan Mirisola, 1st Sunday of each month, 3:00-5:00pm, pre-registration required -scmirisola@gmail.com -

In this two-hour class held on the first Sunday of each month, students will be invited to restore, relax, rejuvenate, and heal body/mind/spirit in long-held postures supported by props.  With the use of blocks, bolsters, blankets, sandbags, eye bags, chairs, the wall and the floor, students will be guided to arrange their body into shapes that are often experienced in a regular yoga class. The difference is that in Restorative Class, a practice developed in 1937 by master yogi B.K.S. Iyengar from Pune, India, these poses held for anywhere between 5-15 minutes and which are fully supported, allow the body to go to a state of deep relaxation where the parasympathetic system is activated. This deep resting state invites healing and balance, as well as energizing as the body/mind/spirit releases physical and emotional tension. This is a receptive rather than an active practice, though the benefits are proven to be many and profound. As the body rests deeply, it begins to breathe on a cellular level and as the student focuses on the breath, an exploration of mind/body connection can begin. Prior yoga experience is not necessary, though is helpful.  $20/class or two punches on your class card.
