Why I Love Restorative Yoga

Mmmm Mmmm Good!

I Love Restorative yoga. It is calming yet gives you energy; it restores your mind, body and soul and it feels great! I first experienced Restorative yoga during my teacher training at Yoga North in Duluth, MN. My teacher, Ann Maxwell, set up 5 stations of Restorative poses. I think we had 2-2.5 hours for this specific training. The training weekends were awesome and brutal at the same time. We would meet for 3 long days (6 or 7 am to 9 0r 10 pm). I would end each day exhausted. But the day we learned Restorative, I went home invigorated. I was so happy and energized that I couldn't shut up about it. I knew right then that Restorative yoga was going to be a big part of both my personal practice and my teaching.

Hi Joy - I'm so glad you came to class, had a good experience, and are taking the practice home. I'll look forward to seeing you again. FYI: Sat Sanga is Thursday, March 5th at Yoga North.
