Both physically, mentally and emotionally.
When I first started teaching Restorative Yoga I often had workshops with the first part active asana and last part restorative asana.
To many people it's easier to rest after some physical work.
Both because the physical body is tired and also because we have this ridiculous idea that we have do DO something to DESERVE rest.
Like work really hard and then, ONLY then relax on the couch.
Or running an hour to deserve that cookie or chocolate or whatever.
After some years I didn't include the active part anymore.
Not because it's not important.
Movement is good and wonderful especially when it's practiced precisely for your unique constitution.
And second; you can go EVERYWHERE and get a sweaty dynamic asana class or a nice workout.
But there are still just a few places where you can come and completely rest.
Where you can drop everything and go inside.
Where the magic is.
And everyday I'm constantly reminded of that we NEED to slow down.
I meet so many beautiful souls who long for inside peace and that's what I want to explore with my students. With You.
And third; I'm MADLY in love in the subtle and softer approach to asana with the many years of practice and study.
And don't get me wrong, my retreats, classes and workshops are NOT only about Restorative Yoga or about rest.
Rest is the KEY that opens the door to your own power. #mantra #repeat 🦄
And when we are rested in our own power the practice will unfold as Mindful Movement, Slow Yoga, Pranayama, chanting, rituals, contemplation and so much more.
That's the aim of Solskogen Yoga 🏹
Rest is the key that opens the door into your own power✨
