The Importance of Recovery Time In Your Busy Life
A critical ingredient to our wellbeing that is easy to forget in our hyperproductive culture is: recovery time. “You need to rest, to put it simply .“It allows you to recover fully from all the stresses and strains of life,” by relaxing muscles, lowering your heart rate, and allowing your nervous system to stop constantly reacting. “People come away from a restorative yoga class not only more relaxed but also more focused with a profound feeling of “Wellbeing”.
Restorative Yoga helps people with:
* Chronic fatigue & Adrenal fatigue
* Depression & anxiety
* Day to day pressures
* Chronic illnesses
For some this is the hardest class your'e going to take. When your still, its hard to shut off your
mind, and thats where the real work is. That's also where you might find the greatest capacity for
growth, deep relaxation, and true well-being.
Health Benefits of Restorative Yoga
Restorative postures, are designed to maximise comfort and allow practitioners to fully let go, These postures help to stimulate reflexes that quiet the brain and heart. For many frazzled people, minimizing effort can feel counterintuitive, but there are real benefits to what may seem like doing very little. Restorative Yoga has long been shown to decrease the stress hormone cortisol, which, in elevated levels, is associated with weight gain, high blood pressure, and diseases. Studies on restorative practices specifically have shown that it can do the same, and may also help cancer patients fight depression and fatigue. Weekly practice will give even deeper benefits from slowing down. Most students often report better sleep for as many as three nights after a class. Restorative yoga and sleep complement one another. Restorative yoga is in fact better than sleep for releasing tense muscles, Sleep is essential for completing the job of full recovery of the nervous system, sorting out memories and emotions, and literally finding meaning in our lives. In addition to an immediate calming effect. Restorative practitioners also notice improved powers of attention and concentration. When the body is deeply relaxed and the nervous system is balanced, the mind is able to engage in our direct experience.Over time, this body- based mindfulness helps us to gain a better perspective on our challenging interactions.
