Join Mimi Rosetti for a Yoga Restorative Workshop on Sunday March 7th from 1:30-4pm at YogaWorks Eastside Studio in New York City. We recommend restorative yoga for runners to help relieve physical and mental stress and this workshop is a great opportunity to help you recover from your Sunday long run. No previous yoga experience is necessary so check it out and definitely start incorporating a restorative practice into your training regimen. For more information check out the workshop flier.
Through the use of passive well-supported postures held for anywhere from 3-20 minutes, the restorative yoga practice helps melt away long held stress stored in the body. By lingering in postures (asanas) with the support of bolsters, blankets, blocks and other props, we give the body the opportunity to release deeply, the breathe to become freer and the mind to let go.
With the use of numerous props, each pose will be tailored to your unique body. When the postures are set up with care for each individual’s comfort then the nervous system can be relieved of responding to any physical stressors, eliciting what Dr. Herbert Benson refers to as the Relaxtion Response. Restorative yoga is an important tool for everyone in countering general fatigue and physical, mental and emotional stress , teaching us to nurture our own internal healing capacities.
