Restorative and Gentle Yoga

Feeling stressed or worn-out? In our Restorative or Gentle yoga classes you’ll get the chance to refresh your thoughts and look at your situation with a clearer and calmer mind.

Restorative yoga incorporates a sequence of 4-6 postures per class, with one single aim: deep relaxation. The support of many props and blankets encourages the release of muscle tension and induces peace of mind.

The Restorative style is suitable for yoga beginners. It is recommended to anyone wishing to counter a busy lifestyle, address stress and anxiety issues, or wishing to maintain high energy levels. Restorative yoga rejuvenates and calms.

Maryline has a strong interest in Yoga Nidra practices. Yoga Nidra is a state of awareness during which the body is resting in a supported lying down position and the subconscious mind remains highly receptive to cues of letting go and achieving peace. Maryline guides you to focus on different parts of the body in turn, and invite you to relax all along a short mental journey around the body. Each of our Restorative Yoga class includes Yoga Nidra.

May-October, Gentle Yoga replaces the Restorative Yoga style. In a Gentle Yoga class, you will stretch more actively, still using props or the wall; you will strengthen also whilst visiting some of the classic, most accessible postures from the Yoga repertoire.

Gentle Yoga is suitable if you like a slower-pace practice with ample time to come in and out of the poses, and if you enjoy the breath and movement combination to achieve a deeper sense of calm and rejuvenation. That practice will help circulation, lower stress levels and leave you feel refreshed thanks to easy to learn mindfulness and breathing techniques.

It is also suitable for beginners, as well as pregnancy or if you are recovering from a life event, illness or experiencing Chronic Fatigue symptoms. Contact Maryline to share any health condition you have prior to attending for the first time, so she can best advise you on which class is the most suitable.
