Restorative Yoga is a form of yoga that seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props. The use of props (such as eye bags, blankets, blocks and bolsters) helps you to maintain balance whilst stimulating and relaxing your body. This type of yoga suitable for all, especially those returning to a yoga practice after a spell away and those working with injuries or health conditions. Restorative yoga allows individuals to switch off from the hectic pace of everyday life and tune into themselves.

When scheduling your workshop, you will receive a confirmation email which includes the Zoom meeting link for the workshop. Join the 'meeting' 5 minutes or so before it is due to start with your audio and video switched on so that the teacher can say hello. You can then go off and do other things or get settled before the workshop starts.
We run our online workshops using ZOOM. In order to join in, download the latest version of Zoom. We recommend leaving plenty of time for this so as to avoid any last minute hitches before your workshop starts.
