Restorative Yoga reduces stress and improves health by rebuilding postural strength and stamina. It helps correcting imbalances caused by daily life stress or major life events.
In this class you learn techniques to restore & renew:
Observing habits and imbalances
Holding yoga poses for a longer time in a easy way
During longer asana poses the body can unwind and release within each pose.
Sanne will help you find the best way into each pose by using props and hands-on adjustments so you can fully experience and relax in each pose. The staying and breathing in the Asana’s cultivates the calm necessary for mental and physical stamina.
The postures during this class help revitalise and recover your body from injuries, back problems, or after giving birth. Therapeutic Yoga can also be helpful after illness or burn out.
Restorative Tensegrity is composed of tension and integrity. The practice of tensegrity is based on an optimal use of muscles and bones. It refers to stable systems with a balance between compactness and elongation. It trains the more subtle muscles and teaches you how to rely on your bones as support in your asana’s.
The Tensegrity Repair class is an asset for all yoga practitioners of all levels.
If you have injuries this class can help you repair them.
We tend to use mostly our bigger, stronger muscles. But deep down in your body, closer to the spine, you have many smaller muscles that bring, when use, a very light and natural strength to your body. It makes movement come from within, from your core. Asana’s take less energy and you are more stable because you can rely on these subtle core muscles, not just on the strength of the bigger muscles.
On top of it Tensegrity teaches you the power of your bones and joints. These give you support and stability without effort if alignment is right.
Gioia Irwin developed a series of practices to train the deeper muscles in combination with bone support and hydrating the joins to promote flexibility and alignment.
Marta made her own lessons Restorative Tensegrity.
Restorative Tensegrity classes start with meditation, vayus and pranayama. Then we do a series of practices lying down. You feel the healthy way to move, without the pull of gravity. Later you can apply these movements in all yoga postures.
