Sandbag Restorative Yoga

Sunday, January 26
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Elmhurst Location

"Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are."

Props are our greatest tools in Restorative yoga and there is no prop more relaxing than the sandbag! In this workshop, Casey will guide you through an incredibly calming Restorative Yoga class and while you're in each posture, an instructor will come around and place sandbags strategically on your body. The sandbag will not only encourage your body a little bit deeper into the pose, but the weight of the sandbag will calm your central nervous system helping you to relax with more ease. This workshop is for all levels!
