Restorative yoga benefits

Benefits of Restorative Yoga

1
00:00:00,140 –> 00:00:03,629
so we hold our yoga questions for quite

2
00:00:03,629 –> 00:00:05,490
a length of time and that helps us to

3
00:00:05,490 –> 00:00:07,710
release a lot of attention that may

4
00:00:07,710 –> 00:00:10,139
exist in the deep tissues and but most

5
00:00:10,139 –> 00:00:11,940
importantly it’s really important not to

6
00:00:11,940 –> 00:00:14,820
have strain in the body and tension

7
00:00:14,820 –> 00:00:17,699
being created in the mind so the length

8
00:00:17,699 –> 00:00:19,289
of time we hold postures can be anything

9
00:00:19,289 –> 00:00:22,560
from to you to 20 minutes and as we hold

10
00:00:22,560 –> 00:00:24,779
these postures we stop to trigger the

11
00:00:24,779 –> 00:00:26,789
parasympathetic part of our autonomic

12
00:00:26,789 –> 00:00:29,910
nervous system is the quieting system

13
00:00:29,910 –> 00:00:32,219
and this allows us to slow down and

14
00:00:32,219 –> 00:00:35,489
restore energy that may be depleted from

15
00:00:35,489 –> 00:00:37,559
our systems both physically and mentally

16
00:00:37,559 –> 00:00:39,870
the thing that’s a really important part

17
00:00:39,870 –> 00:00:42,540
of the practice so as the physical body

18
00:00:42,540 –> 00:00:44,910
is passive and non muscular it really

19
00:00:44,910 –> 00:00:47,969
lends itself to allow us to improve our

20
00:00:47,969 –> 00:00:50,399
breathing capacity and to slow down our

21
00:00:50,399 –> 00:00:53,480
breathing on average we perhaps breathe

22
00:00:53,480 –> 00:00:57,239
10 to 12 breaths per minute and what

23
00:00:57,239 –> 00:00:59,340
yoga allows us to do is to slow down

24
00:00:59,340 –> 00:01:01,379
that capacity something perhaps we take

25
00:01:01,379 –> 00:01:04,319
three to five breaths per minute rather

26
00:01:04,319 –> 00:01:07,010
than increasing our breaths per minute

27
00:01:07,010 –> 00:01:10,350
we do about five to six postures for the

28
00:01:10,350 –> 00:01:13,229
75-minute class and it gives us time to

29
00:01:13,229 –> 00:01:15,479
explore our practice but also it allows

30
00:01:15,479 –> 00:01:18,750
us to have a little bit of individual

31
00:01:18,750 –> 00:01:21,270
tension paid towards each practitioner

32
00:01:21,270 –> 00:01:23,909
that comes to class if you really feel

33
00:01:23,909 –> 00:01:27,240
as if you’re not only creating or

34
00:01:27,240 –> 00:01:29,490
allowing self care to come from the

35
00:01:29,490 –> 00:01:31,560
studio itself here in this environment

36
00:01:31,560 –> 00:01:34,350
also from the teacher but also from

37
00:01:34,350 –> 00:01:36,360
yourselves and sub care is a really

38
00:01:36,360 –> 00:01:39,750
important part of feeling good about

39
00:01:39,750 –> 00:01:42,420
yourselves and feeling quite having a

40
00:01:42,420 –> 00:01:44,939
more peaceful life so when you nurture

41
00:01:44,939 –> 00:01:47,549
yourself in these types of practices you

42
00:01:47,549 –> 00:01:51,030
allow yourself to really create what I

43
00:01:51,030 –> 00:01:54,000
like to refer as it’s love in action so

44
00:01:54,000 –> 00:01:56,880
as we take care of ourselves we are much

45
00:01:56,880 –> 00:01:59,460
more and unable to take care of others

46
00:01:59,460 –> 00:02:01,590
around us and those we come in contact

47
00:02:01,590 –> 00:00:00,000
