This series will explore the subtle aspects of setting up and creating space to hold Restorative poses as sanctuary for mind, body and spirit. Johns Hopkins, Mayo Clinic, Stanford Hospital and University of California, San Francisco have all participated in studies with Restorative Yoga.

Overview of how emotions can be affected by Restorative setup. Anxiety, Depression and Grief are subjects of this series, and this session shows how to look at Supta Baddhakonasana and the way you set it up to affect deeper levels of the body.
Where does emotion sit in your own body? What parts of the body feel the emotions of Anxiety, Depression and Grief? Each emotion will have a feeling of temperature, speed and location in the body. As we become more attuned to where these emotions can sit, the more we can help to heal ourselves and others.
Much as the Gunas arise in all aspects of our lives, they arise in the emotional body. The more we balance the Rajasic and Tamasic aspects within us, the more we can bring the body, mind and spirit back to the sweet Sattvic state of yoga.
