Restorative Yoga is the radical pleasure of going slow, resting and listening to our inner wisdom. During this two-hour retreat, Mary Beth Ferda and Jenn Brooks will be your guides on a journey inward to find deep relaxation. Spend the evening renewing your body, relaxing and unwinding stress and tension with gentle movement, restorative yoga poses, and therapeutic, safe touch.
You will be supported by a variety of cushions and blankets while in relaxing yoga poses that aim to restore the body and mind to natural balance. Therapeutic, safe touch, energy work and essential oil applications will be offered while the body is in rest.
Through Restorative Yoga, we begin to sooth our overstimulated sympathetic nervous systems and find relief from the stress of our busy lives. Come experience the magic of this deeply transformational practice. Paradoxically, by giving ourselves the gift of rest, we will discover more energy for family, work and creativity.
This experience is open to everyone, no experience is required. Bring a yoga mat if you have one, but it is not required. You may wish to dress in layers and bring a pair of socks to wear.
“I was honored to get to participate in Jenn Brooks’ and Mary Beth Ferda’s Restorative Yoga and Therapeutic Touch class and it was absolutely what I needed. There were two sets of hands walking around while we were in deep rest and stretch. It was as if they knew where to place their hands every time in order for me to create depth, and also ease, in my poses. It was more then a yoga class it was definitely yoga therapy. ~Thea Vincenti
