This class is all about supported backbends. Bending forward is a large part of our daily routine. We lean forward and sit at the computer facing forward. These restorative poses, guided by Judith Hanson Lasater, will help undo the constant habit of this action to help you relieve tension and reduce pain. Backbends do not need to be strenuous or intense in order to feel the benefits. These poses are more about opening rather than stretching.
2. Basic Restorative Inversions
This practice will focus on two basic methods of restorative inversions. Inversions are poses in which your legs are higher than the heart and promote circulation, muscle recovery, and relaxation. Judith will first set you up in Legs up the Wall pose in which you will need two-three blankets, a yoga strap or belt, and eye pillow. The second basic restorative inversion is Legs on Chair in which you will need a chair with no arms and two blankets. Judith will be on hand to guide you through setting these poses up, easing you into the pose, and bringing you out after a period of relaxation.
3. Restorative Savasana
In a culture focused around doing more, having more, and getting more, it is crucial to learn and practice simple techniques to help reduce stress and anxiety. Savasana, or basic relaxation pose, is one of the most important and ancient poses in yoga. Join the amazing Judith Hanson Lasater and dedicate just 30-minutes of your day to savasana and learning how to just be. This class will leave you feeling rejuvenated, de-stressed and mentally clear.
