Hi, I’m Helen Vann a long-time yoga practitioner and teacher at ASMY West End. The speed at which we all seem to live our lives these days – rushing to and fro with jobs and family commitments – leaves many of us chronically tired and stressed with very few opportunities to recharge our batteries.
This is where Restorative Yoga comes in. It is a deeply relaxing practice – there is no striving to achieve the perfect pose, no ‘working the edge’. It is simply an opportunity for deep relaxation and rejuvenation.
If you’ve been to even one regular yoga asana class then you will find the poses familiar. I will guide you into each asana where you will be deeply supported using all the regular yoga props such as straps, bolsters, blocks and blankets.
Typically, there are fewer students than in a regular yoga asana practice so that I have the opportunity to help everyone to get the maximum benefit from this amazing practice.
I hope to see you on 21 January at the ASMY West End yoga studio for the start of your journey into Restorative Yoga.
