Hurry Up, and Slow Down: Extended Version

Available worldwide

This is an extended version of Marla's Hurry Up, and Slow Down restorative class, where we take more time to sink into the poses. Perfect for those suffering from insomnia or feeling stuck in 'stress mode' in their nervous system with a mind that won't turn off. Great if you are feeling tight from working out or running, as well as for anyone with limited mobility due to aches, pains, or injury.

A classic, in my opinion, and one I come back to whenever I feel depleted.
Also a wonderful adjunct to Dina Amsterdam's Immunity boost practice.

Hi Energiayoga,
Props are great to have; but a bunch of pillows and folded and rolled up blankets can have the same effect.
Try different types of pillows, and have a ton of them on hand, same for blankets, and take lots of time time to make yourself 100% comfortable like Marla said. Then sink in!

Thanks for the feedback. I'll try it again for sure!! I try to go to Yin Yoga classes whenever possible but they don't use props. Def need to go buy a bolster.

Hello energiayoga! I am really sorry to hear that this restorative yoga practice gave you a terrible headache. The most important thing to remember with this style (or any style) of yoga is that you need to feel 100% comfortable before you can spend time and drop in to the pose. I teach this style in very small groups so that I can really pamper each student and give them whatever props they need to feel 100% comfortable. I cannot stress that enough. If you are not able to let go completely, relax, 'fall' into the earth with ease and slow flowing breath you need to pause the video and do whatever it takes to get there. This kind of thing definitely gets easier the more you do it. Having the help of a live teacher or even a good friend might allow you to appreciate this style, and feel the benefits. Don't give up!

This practice gave me the worst headache. If you have all the props, great! If not you might get frustrated trying to get comfortable.

Amazing. Delightfully relaxing and rejuvenating. Just what the doctor ordered if you're recovering from a stressful week, an injury, or just tired and need some time to take care of yourself.
