What to expect: Gentler on the joints and fascia than Yin Yoga, Restorative is a profoundly soothing experience that restores your body and mind to its equilibrium through a process of deeply relaxing postures. Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “going-to-sleep” stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and you become systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. In this ‘class’ you will lie on bolsters, sink into the mat and be carried in a semi-conscious and deeply relaxing state. Then you will be verbally guided in a ‘yogic sleep’ state or profound calm and relaxation.
