What is Restorative Yoga and what to expect from the class

Restorative yoga is a gentle form of yoga that focuses on relaxation and rejuvenation. It involves holding poses for extended periods, with the support of props such as blankets, bolsters, and blocks, to allow the body to fully relax into each posture. The emphasis is on deep breathing and releasing tension from the muscles, rather than on active stretching or strengthening.

Restorative yoga is designed to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the body’s “rest and digest” response. This can help reduce stress, promote better sleep, and enhance overall well-being. It is especially beneficial for individuals recovering from illness or injury, as well as those experiencing high levels of stress or anxiety.

During a restorative yoga practice, you will move through a series of poses that are held for several minutes each. The focus is on finding comfort and ease in each posture, allowing the body to relax deeply and the mind to become calm and centred.

Overall, restorative yoga offers a gentle and nurturing approach to self-care, making it accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels. It can be practiced as a standalone session or incorporated into a broader yoga practice to balance more vigorous or strenuous styles of yoga or physical activities.

An ideal session to relieve tension and stress and a great class for heading into the weekend after a busy week!

Kitty also teaches Yin Yoga on Mondays at 6pm and Gentle Vinyasa on Thursdays at 6:30pm.

Kitty has lived a life infused with Yoga since she was a young teenager, she established the foundations for this moving art after being introduced to the practice by her mother. While studying a degree in Public Health she found herself adopting a regular practice of meditation through Arhatic Yoga and Pranic Healing. At the same time she discovered the dynamic Ashtanga Yoga practice and moved deeply into the Mysore form.

Since 2006 Kitty has traveled to India, Indonesia, New Zealand, UK, USA and Germany on several occasions to further educate herself in Yoga, Meditation, Pranic Healing, and Ayurvedic Medicine. She has explored several Ayurvedic therapy (Panchakarma) centres throughout the globe and has observed many methods of healing. Kitty’s passion is to share this knowledge of Ayurveda, Yoga and meditation and she regularly facilitates Yoga workshops and conducts one on one Ayurvedic lifestyle consults.

She is committed to engaging in nourishing work for the soul and finds herself collaborating with like minded souls who are equally dedicated to well being as she is. Kitty considers herself a constant student, embracing knowledge and wisdom through regular daily practices. On and off the mat, Kitty wishes to share a path full of humility, acceptance and joy.
