Sleeping in Savasana

My yoga journey

Restorative Yoga

on February 6, 2018

Ahead of my course in March I have to attend some restorative yoga classes and write reflectively on them. It’s a bit odd but I understand why it’s part of the course.

I went to my first restorative yoga class as part of this at the end of January. It was run by Kat of Karma Yoga. It was at Om Therapies in the same room that I did my YTT in. I’d forgotten how cool the room could be and hadn’t worn enough layers so ended up wrapped in my wrap for most of the class. There were blankets so I would have been ok without it but next time long layers are needed.

It was a really lovely class with lots of moves that I hadn’t tried before. I especially like a move that was essentially a supported one leg locust pose. I hate the dynamic version of this but with a bolster on a block under the leg this was a lovely opening across the front of the hip and one that I’ll be doing again.

Kat also gave lots of hands on adjustments and used eye pillows as mini weights on the back of your neck to help to release into the pose. I’ll certainly be back as it was a lovely relaxing way to spend Sunday evening and I really enjoyed being a student again.
