Session 3. Restorative Reset Power through Stillness - Restore
Maxi Meissner
13 December 2021 • Duration: 1 Hour, 8 Minutes
In this Restorative Yoga session we especially focus on restorative yoga poses and breathing techniques that help us release "old" tension and holding so we feel rejuvenated and spacious.

Are you exhausted or overwhelmed?

Most of us lead lives that reinforce our working at fast forward speed and then we collapse into exhaustion. These days feel just too over-scheduled, too busy, too distracted. We come up with so many plans: new resolutions, new diets, new bucket-lists and the constant promises to ourselves to take better care and take more rest.

But it’s not so easy, so we don’t.

This is where Restorative yoga comes in. Restorative yoga is an antidote to the busy life in fast forward mode. Restorative yoga is a gentle yet very effective practice. It is simple, easy, and a very potent tool for reducing stress and releasing tension. Restorative yoga poses are positions which are supported by props, which are still, and which are held for a long time, up to 20 minutes, unlike classic yoga poses. Only 10 minutes of a Restorative yoga pose will change your day, mood, perspective, and ultimately life.
