Rest and Resiliency
Nourish's approach to this style of yoga is to make the poses accessible to those with chronic disease so as not to go into post-exertianal malaise or more pain.
Restorative yoga is the use of props to support the body in positions of comfort and ease to facilitate relaxation and health. It is a powerful tool to decrease stress by activating the parasympathetic nervous system.
In this way, we use the inborn systems of the body to activate the parasympathetic nervous system. This system is responsible for digestion, elimination, fertility, immunity, hormone regulation, and so much more.
Restorative yoga reduces hyperactivity in the frontal cortex and helps us to regulate interoceptive awareness.
When we practice, our brain waves change, shifting from Beta (active state) through Alpha (meditative state) into the deeper Theta (dream state) and Delta (sleep state).
More than just rest, Restorative practices promote physical, emotional, and psychological healing.
