Love

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have build against it. ~ Rumi

Restorative yoga is different from other forms of yoga in that it is not a practice of stretching or strengthening or striving but rather of setting up the support and situation that allows the body and mind to let go, relax and unwind itself. In many ways, restorative yoga is about removing the barriers between us and love.

As always, the Moon River Restorative classes use simple props and supports that you can find around the house. On Wednesdays, we will use minimal props – just a couple of towels or blankets, for example – for a practice that can be done anywhere at any time. On Sundays, we will use nesting props – still all things from around the house but more of them! Today’s practice anchors on the pelvis, chest and head and is a nesting practice. Find the video here. (VIDEO NOTE: For an unknown reason, the video freezes at about 30 minutes but the audio continues making the practice perfectly usable albeit a little strange!)

Props for the Practice:
~ carpet ~ blanket ~ yoga mat (or all three…just make the floor soft)
~ 2 firm pillows
~ 2 fluffy towels
~ 1 chair
~ 1 blanket (optional)
~ eye covering (optional)
~ socks (optional)
~ tea or water (optional)
