Class #15. Relax deeply.

So… this everyday yoga thing isn’t so easy on the body. Today I felt like my body just needed a break, a lazy day. I went to a restorative class at rising lotus and it was surprisingly magical… We held a bunch of “simple” poses for very long periods of time. This is the second restorative class I have taken this year and I’m realizing how incredible they really are. Allowing your body the time to continue to release deeper and deeper into a pose makes the asana that much more beneficial and utterly blissful. By the time we got to savasana, my entire body was completely relaxed and buzzing with prana. It’s nice to take the effort completely out of the poses so the breath can exist in its fullest capacity. I think sometimes, after we have been practicing yoga for awhile, we forget how incredible a simple restorative class can be!
