Peace Room Relaxation

A restorative yoga practice is the antithesis of the “no pain no gain” mentality.

Restorative yoga is a "no pain loads of gain mentality".

Restorative yoga doesn't do force. It does release. It does surrender. It does compassion. It does slow. It does stillness.

Life for most of us is fast. We're all rushing about. There's nothing wrong with rushing. But we humans don't do sometimes rushing. We do constant rushing. We do relentless on the go rushing. It's as if we believe that stopping, slowing, or calming will cause instantaneous death. Guess what. It won't. The only thing that will die is any strain you're holding onto. 

Have you ever asked yourself: "What am I running away from?" If you ask the question enough, you'll discover it's you. You're running away from you.

You are lovely.

You are fabulous.

You are important.

So, why don't you feel lovely, fabulous and important? Because you're rushing around.  It's time you mentally click the Stop Button. Go on. Click that big red Stop Button. Ah yes. Feels good, heh. Unfurl your yoga mat. And follow along with this restorative yoga practice.
