Delighted for Spritz Wellness to be featured in the new Restorative Yoga Magbook offering 36 step-by-step poses and sequences to help relax and heal your body and mind by Mary Comber.
The following is a small except from the beautifully designed Restorative Yoga Magbook on how to create your yoga space.
CREATE A YOGA SPACE Enhance your practice by taking time to set the scene for relaxation. The joy of yoga is that you can practise it anytime, anywhere. But if you’re going to make Restorative yoga a regular part of your routine, it’s worth finding a dedicated space to practise. Here, you can create a calming environment where you can keep your props and other essentials. It could even become a space where you spend time relaxing, reading or writing your journal. Here are some easy ideas to get you started.
SET A TIME AND A PLACE Often with Restorative yoga, we practise in the evening after a busy day when we need to unwind. Whatever time works for you, make sure you have a dedicated space. It doesn’t need to be big at all, just enough room to allow you to lie down comfortably. You can even practise Restorative yoga on a bed or sofa if you have limited floor space.
REMOVE DISTRACTIONS Allow yourself the time to commit fully to your practice. Let others know you’ll be practising so that you’re not interrupted. Turn off your phone or keep it in a different room if you find it distracting.
GET COMFY Create a relaxing space by using candles, playing gentle music, turning down the lights and wearing comfortable clothes. You don’t need any special clothing, just something that allows you to relax and stretch.
BE PREPARED Have some props handy to help you get the most out of your practice, such as a blanket, bolster, block or brick and strap. Don’t worry if you don’t own any. You can use items you find in the house such as a cushion, rolled towels and a thick book
