Foundations of Restorative Yoga
September 25th-27th 2020
Restorative Yoga allows for the space and time to relax, resting deeply and completely. During deep relaxation, all the organ systems of the body benefit! A few of the measurable results of deep relaxation are the reduction of blood pressure, serum triglycerides and blood sugar levels in the blood, the increase of the "good cholesterol" levels, as well as improvement in digestion, fertility, elimination, the reduction of muscle tension, insomnia and generalized fatigue.
