Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga with Rania

Restorative yoga is a way of nurturing the body and mind through poses supported by props. With the body relaxing into the props, poses can be maintained for an extended period of time which allows the nervous system to shift from a sympathetic state (fight or flight) into a parasympathetic state (rest and digest). Tension dissolves, circulation to the body's organs improves and we enter into a natural state of relaxation. For many of us, it is the one opportunity for us to "be" rather than to "do" - an internal retreat of sorts.

This practice helps strengthen immunity and provides an opportunity for the body and mind to rest completely. In turn, this allows us to become more aware of our energy, thoughts, emotions and physical sensations and reminds the body of its ability to heal mental, emotional and physical symptoms.

Rania, your teacher

After years of pushing her mind and her body to extremes, Rania was searching for something to relieve the toll that stress and anxiety were taking on her. Weight was increasing, sleep was interrupted, and she was feeling disconnected from her body. It was then that she first tried a Restorative Yoga class and experienced the most intense sense of relief and release from the tensions that had been building over time.

Three years later, Rania cherishes Restorative Yoga as a regular part of her physical and mental wellbeing practice and now shares this gift with others to help spread the healing.

Type of classes

Rania's classes are designed to support your own unique healing journey. Lights are dimmed, music is calming and gentle instruction is balanced with silence to support relaxation as poses are held for 10-20 minutes.

Each class will have a specific focus in mind with each pose supporting, nurturing and helping the body to heal in that area. Additional supporting tools include essential oils, crystals, as well as various props to support your body in this practice.
