Stretch and Relax
By Doug Binzak on Apr 1, 2012
This April 1st slow, deep stretching restorative session is for those FOOLish enough to understand that when we get out of the way, our bodies can begin to replenish, rejuvenate, rebalance, and heal on their own. We focus on muscle relaxation and deep breathing to induce our "tend and mend" parasympathetic nervous system, and then layer in a healthy dose of smiles and contemplation on the Holy Fools. The ones who went against the grain of culture in order to move with the flow of life by turning inward. NO experience is necessary, though yoga props of bolster, blanket, strap and block are used to create the passively stretching shapes.
