Cheri and Avahara invite you to join them in this workshop focused on relaxation and renewal through restorative yoga, gentle yoga, breath awareness, self-soothing techniques, and guided meditation, all done to Avahara's relaxing ambient music. Our intention is that by the end of the workshop you will feel like you are floating on a lotus flower!

The workshop uses props for the restorative yoga poses. If using yoga props at home is new to you, please see Cheri's home yoga prop tutorial video:
Choose a practice space where you won't be disturbed. Make sure it has plenty of space for you to stretch your arms overhead once you are reclining and space to twist without running into any furniture. Warm up the space before the workshop begins if possible. Therapeutic Yoga can be practiced on a carpeted area, or you may practice on a hard wood or tiled floor with a yoga or exercise mat. Once you have set up your computer in a good place where you can easily see the screen, gather your yoga props and bring them to the room where you will be practicing. Here's a list of what you will need... 1 or more yoga bolsters, preferably a standard rectangular. If you don't have a bolster you can fold towels (the size of a bolster) and add a bed pillow on top to create one. 3 yoga blankets, or blankets from around the house. It's always better to have too many props then not enough. Two or three throw pillows that are the same size can be used instead of blankets for certain poses. Make sure you have at least one blanket to place over you to keep warm during the workshop. 1 yoga strap, or a strap from a robe or long scarf can be used. 1 yoga block or a few books to form the same shape as a yoga block. 1 eye pillow or scarf, a sleeve from a shirt, or clean sock will work to cover the eyes and block out light. **Santa Barbara Yoga Center props are 20% off or 25% off for any 3 items or more. Please call 805-965-6045 to schedule an appointment to purchase props.** If you have a bottle of aromatherapy you may also bring it to your yoga space to be used in Savasana, the deep relaxation pose. Some good choices are lavender, eucalyptus, orange or citrus. Be sure to turn off your cell phone and take off your watch for the practice time. We look forward to sharing this deeply nurturing, healing practice with you.
