Wednesdays 7:00 - 8:30pm

The first half of the class will create some heat, get the body warm, create strength in the muscles and cardiovascular system. The second half will utilize all of our props (bolsters, blocks, straps, blankets and eye pillows) to create a beautiful restorative practice. This slower paced in nature creates space for attuning to your body’s inner wisdom, promoting relaxation and inner balance.

Ally's vinyasa flow is a major hit with the community here at Sarovara Yoga, yet her restorative classes sooth the entire mind, body & soul. This combination of 'yang' and 'yin' practices create an incredibly balancing experience.

This class will both benefit and strengthen the body and then invite you to melt into the support of props as Ally guides a meditative state to rejuvenate and heal the entire central nervous system. You do not want to miss this class!!

Are you ready to feel balanced and restored?

More About Vinyasa & Restorative Yoga

The First Half: Vinyasa Yoga is such a wonderful practice. It has so many benefits; stretching, strengthening, stabilizing, sweating, detoxifying. Vinyasa means "to move with the breath" which is a flowing style of class rather than holding too many static poses over longer periods of time. A regular practice can lower cortisol levels, calms the mind, increases mental clarity and releases and reduces stress and tension. Whether you are looking to improve your metabolism and circulation, detoxify the different tissues of your body, or strengthen your cardiovascular system, vinyasa will give you the results you are looking for!  Ally leads vinyasa in her Kripalu style, creative way which means that no 2 classes ever look exactly alike. This will keep you on your toes and keep the mind present instead of just "going through the sequence". The styles of postures (asanas) that you will explore in this portion of the class include strengthening (downward dogs, warriors, planks or half planks), balancing (trees, warrior 3's, balancing tables), stretching (pigeons, forward folds, runner’s stretches), heart opening (puppy stretches, camels, cats/cows) the seven movements of the spine (flexion, extension, length, twists & lateral stretches) and many more.

The Second Half: A restorative yoga sequence involves only 3-5 poses that are experienced for 5-8 minutes each, supported by props that allow you to completely relax and rest. With as little effort as possible, the bolsters, blocks, blankets and pillows support you in light twists, seated forward folds, gentle backbends and more. Ally guides yoga into a meditative (yoga nidra) state as you relax into the support of the props and sooth the entire nervous system. You can think of restorative yoga as "yoga for the nervous system", the practitioner emerges feeling resting and rejuvenated.
