Restorative Yoga with Nancy Hodge Long
Yoga is available to everyone. It is the practice of non-striving. Yoga is not about doing, but rather being. Being in the present moment and allowing the body/mind to deeply feel each sensation. It is accepting yourself, letting go into your natural flow. The breath is your guide to connecting body, mind and spirit. Restorative Yoga is the practice of finding your way to rest and relaxation. It is a powerful tool to restore health and well-being. Practiced regularly, Restorative Yoga provides a user-friendly technique to reduce stress and nurture the body/mind. This practice has the ability to heal many of the effects of chronic stress.
The CD includes a series of restorative poses that move the spine in all directions: backbends, forward bends, twists, laterals, and inversions. These poses support the body in a way that bring balance. They both stimulate and relax. The effects of the soothing, calming poses allow the body to let go, moving into an innate, internal healing process.
