RESTORE & RELAX
As Gaylene guides you gently through range of motion movements, and by using bolsters, blankets, blocks, cushions, etc. this amazing practice brings to each individual a unique experience, a sense of well-being and the opportunity to fully calm the mind, body and spirit. The intention is to release, stretch and breathe, while comfortably shifting, then relaxing into each progressive pose.
This can be a private session or invite a couple of friends.
Currently offered through Zoom. Before starting Gaylene will chat with you about your goals and help select props you may have available at home.
