Restorative Aerial Yoga with Ireni Stamou
Sunday May 20th, 10:00am -12:30pm – Ten Spots Available. $30/person
Restorative Aerial Yoga is a deeply healing, low to the ground, suspension practice in an aerial hammock. With the intention to restore and relax your nervous system, experience a deep pelvic release, decompression of the spine and lower back relief.
In Restorative Aerial Yoga, swaying and swivelling the body from the base of the spine organically awakens the kundalini energy; and offers a safe haven for letting go.
About Restorative Yoga:
A restorative yoga sequence involves only 5-8 poses that are experienced for 5-10 minutes each, supported by props that allow you to completely relax and rest. With as little effort as possible, the bolsters, blocks, blankets and pillows support you in light twists, seated forward folds, gentle backbends and more. Ally guides a meditative states as you relax into the support of the props and sooth the entire nervous system. In this workshop we will experience restorative yoga with the support of the aerial hammock.
