Restorative Yoga is a practice that is inclusive for all audiences, injuries, abilities, and ages. It allows you to be on the floor and fully supported by props such as blankets, bolsters, cushions, straps, walls, and chairs. Each supported posture is held for 5 to 10 minutes with the expectation that you are in complete comfort. Any discomfort is addressed by adjusting the support of your props or even switching to another shape entirely. Restorative Yoga is a practice known to help flexibility, relax the body, still the mind, and improve the capacity for healing. Additionally, it can help balance the nervous and immune systems.
The Gong and the Tibetan Singing Bowls produce harmonization and tones that transmit soothing and peaceful vibrations known to have healing qualities. They can potentially balance the chakras and relax your body on a deeper level. With deeper relaxation, you'll find your sympathetic nervous system, or stress response, can take a much needed break. With the parasympathetic nervous system, or the relaxation response, in charge, you'll have the opportunity for both physical and mental recovery.
Why use these two practices together? Both practices support the relaxation response, so together they act as a double dose of parasympathetic elixir. When this elixir know as Ojas runs low, we run the risk of depletion in all of our systems.
This workshop will start with Restorative Yoga and finish with the Sound Bath. Wear comfortable clothing.

During case work, which begins Monday, and in detailed discussions of selected cases, we evaluate "patients" in five categories, using the acronym SNAPS: Structural, Nervous System and Breath, Ayurveda, Psychology and Spirituality. This holistic roadmap allows for a systematic assessment of function on all levels of body, mind and spirit. YAM uses the full palette of yogic tools including poses, breathing techniques, meditation and philosophy as well as dietary and lifestyle advice.
Past attendees have included healers, health care professionals, yoga students and teachers, as well as those seeking yoga therapy for such conditions as back pain, cancer, arthritis, heart problems, Parkinson’s disease, anxiety and depression. Familiarity with basic yoga concepts and practices is helpful, but not absolutely necessary.
