Onkar Adi Kaur (Ilaiza Cochrane) instructs the following:
Experience Restorative yoga through breath awareness, gentle movements to relax muscles, and supported poses. All poses can be supported by props with modifications as needed. This practice will encourage the body into deep relaxation and total comfort in order to release tension, cultivate awareness of one's own inner stillness and peace, and elicit your own body's intelligence to aid in the healing process. All levels welcome.
Relax and go deep with this slow-paced, passive class as you work into the connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, fascia) and increase circulation and flexibility.
