Hot Stone Restorative Yoga Workshop

Restorative Yoga is a deeply soothing inward form of yoga where the body is placed in highly therapeutic postures that are supported with soft bolsters, blocks and cozy blankets while the mind is invited to slow down. The result is a state of relaxation much deeper than traditional sleep. (Postures are held up to 25 minutes each).
Enjoy this relaxing journey as heated basalt stones are gently placed on the body. The heat from the stones gently penetrates into the muscles, melting away layers of physical and emotional tension, allowing you to relax in blissful luxury.

Children learn through modelling and play, and over time, you may find your toddler engaged in what we are offering and exposing them to; meditation, breath work, asana, music, and most of all love and light!
