A monthly Restorative Yoga & Meditation Practice 

Date: 1st Wednesday of each month 

Investment: £11.00

Time: 8.20pm - 9.20pm 

With the explosion of yoga in the West, there’s been an influx of yoga styles, each expressing their own blend of breathing, poses, meditation, chanting, relaxation, and philosophy. Restorative yoga, a practice that leads the yogi toward a more healing and recuperative experience, ushers in a host of wonderful benefits that are often overshadowed by the popularity and visibility of more dynamic yoga styles.

A restorative practice frequently relies on the use of props and the prolonged holding of a few simple poses to achieve a deep level of relaxation. 

ncorporated in this practice you will begin to learn the skills to meditate. 

Meditation can be defined as a set of techniques that are intended to encourage a heightened state of awareness and focused attention. Meditation can take on many different forms, but there are two main types: concentrative meditation and mindfulness meditation.

Research has shown that meditation can have both physiological and psychological effects. Some of the positive physiological effects include a lowered state of physical arousal, reduced respiration rate, decreased heart rate, changes in brain wave patterns and lowered stress.

Some of the other psychological, emotional, and health-related benefits of meditation include:

  • Increased self-awareness

  • Better stress management skills

  • Improved emotional well-being

  • Better management of symptoms of conditions including anxiety disorders, depression, sleep disorders, pain issues, and high blood pressure

  • Improvement in working memory and fluid intelligence

  • Changes in different aspects of attention

  • Suitable for any level
