About the event
It’s the time of year in Ohio where the heat panels in the red room feel like a necessity.
Join Kate Frichtl for one hour of restorative yoga under the warmth of the heat panels, the glow of candles, and light aromatherapy from essential oils.
We spend a fair amount of our time rushing from one thing to the next and although we may not realize it, our bodies shift into “fight or flight” mode as our stresses tend to be chronic and ongoing. This response can take its toll on not only our headspace, but also on our physical health. Our bodies are prioritizing this constant activation as a means for survival and so things like growth, repair and digestion get pushed aside.
Restorative Yoga poses can help to relieve the effects of chronic stress for many reasons. When the body is fully supported in strategic ways designed to move the spine in all directions, the body not only reaps the rewards for enhanced spinal health, it also enters the “rest and digest” mode enabling the body to receive increased blood flow to organs, lower blood pressure, slower breathing and enhances overall balance and a quiet mind.
In Judith Lasater’s words: “The antidote to stress is relaxation. To relax is to rest deeply. This rest is different from sleep. Deep states of sleep include periods of dreaming, which increase muscular tensions, as well as other physiological signs of tension. Relaxation is a state in which there is no movement, no effort, and the brain is quiet”
By coming to a restorative yoga class, you are actively promoting the above actions. Rest is productive:)
