Restorative Yoga Sessions – Victoria BC

Private Restorative Yoga Sessions

In your private restorative session, you will be guided through a relaxing sequence of restorative poses, using props, blankets and various supports designed to reduce tension and stress. The sessions are designed to activate the parasympathetic nervous system –  the state in which our bodies can access their own healing potential.

Guided mediation, breath work and Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) are incorporated with the intention to help you develop an ongoing home based practice to compliment your class work. Restorative yoga was developed for times of injury when an active practice is inaccessible, as well as to help with fatigue, insomnia, stress, grief and loss, and self-care.

Rachel Sadava is an experienced 500Hr Certified instructor with a background in Trauma work and specialization in Restorative Therapeutics. She teaches Restorative Yoga modules for both Brahmanda School of Yoga and Yoga Mala’s 500 Hour Teacher Training programs.
