Yin/Restorative › Lisa Sanfilippo
Yin yoga is a quieting, floor-based practice in which you hold poses for a length of time helping you drop deeper and play with your edge. Restorative yoga allows your body to experience deep relaxation through a series of long, passive stretches that are fully supported by props to begin releasing habitual, long-held tension.
Sleep Recovery Series (3): Restorative Pick Me Up
This yoga class teaches the set up of restorative yoga poses to bring you into the mental and physical states which repair your ability to sleep at night, whilst helping to replenish energy during the day. These gentle restorative yoga poses will gently energise you, perfect for a midday pause or great as a gentle way to start the day. Poses include legs up the chair pose, lying down goddess pose and child's pose. After you've learnt the set up for these poses we recommend you learn the set up and stay in position for a minimum of 3 minutes for each pose. You'll need a chair or a sofa, a blanket, a belt and two bolsters or sofa cushions. Lisa talks us through the set up of these props, and how to use sofa cushions for a comfortable restorative goddess pose.
