RESTORATIVE YOGA invites us to bring more softness and ease to our bodies and mind.
Different yoga poses are supported by bolsters, blankets, blocks, and other support to create a ‘rest nest’. There is a deep intelligence in how we position the body in the restorative poses, breathing techniques used, and the time spent in a pose to up-regulate the parasympathetic nervous system. When we slow down, we become aware of where we store tension and can release tension.
SOUND HEALING (also known as sound bath or sound therapy) creates a vibration in your body and the room.
As sound waves travel through space and water, so too do they travel through the body. Certain frequencies can create specific effects and can alter brain wave frequencies (making you calmer or more alert). It also can help bring peace and calm; if your mind is always active, focusing on the sounds gives your mind something to tune into. We use singing bowls, gongs, chimes, rainsticks, mantra, and more.
Instead of setting a ‘regular’ new year’s resolution that doesn’t last, we spend a night in deep relaxation. We then do a Buddhist meditation to reveal our highest intention for the new year. This evening is held in community.
Over the past 15 years, Shanine has helped thousands of people to nourish and restore their body, mind, and soul through her classes, having taught many teacher trainings, workshops, and through her recordings. Her first teaching position was working at a hospice, bringing the healing benefits of restorative yoga to those with life-limiting illnesses. She returned to Restorative when she was so depleted. Restorative and Yoga Nidra restored her back to health (as well as through herbal medicine) and provided so much more.
Shanine is dedicated to bringing Rituals and Rest to her students (a space that cultivates reverence and guides us to slow down and listen to the whispers of our heart). In Restorative and Yoga Nidra, we are on a pilgrimage of dissolving to be fully received.
