What is Restorative Yoga?
It is a gentle practice that helps provide physical and mental balance to cope with stress and anxiety through the use of various props which help you to stay in the posture longer, giving you time to benefit from the passive stretch.
Being supported during these postures has a restorative effect. It allows you to rejuvenate the body by encouraging a state of relaxation which in turn allows healing to happen.
This switches on the parasympathetic nervous system which takes you from the stressful “fight or flight response” to a more manageable “rest and restore” state of mind and body.
Who should do Restorative yoga?
It’s for anyone who is recovering from trauma, surgery, cancer treatment, fatigue, sleep disorder, emotional stress, depression and anxiety or perhaps from a major life changing event.
Even if you are just feeling a little under the weather and need some time for yourself you would benefit from this practice.
What are the benefits?
Restorative yoga has many benefits.
It helps bring balance back into our hectic fast-paced lifestyle.
Deep breathing and calming poses mean the heart-rate, blood pressure and emotions slow down creating a healthier state of being.
It can help ward off depression and improve mental health, encourage sleep, create or maintain flexibility and regain strength in the body.
It helps develop a better sleeping pattern.
It relives back pain and injuries releasing muscular tension and strain.
It helps you to accept and possibly come to terms with trauma and grief.

Jakki started yoga back in the early eighties. From the first night she went to class she was hooked! She felt she had found something in the practice and philosophy of Yoga that she could truly relate to, and she looked forward to her once a week yoga “fix”.
Over the next 20 years she has attended Yoga classes with various teachers both here in Ireland and in England. All of these teachers have been enlightening, encouraging and supportive – and all very different.
In 2000 Jakki began attending classes in Leixlip and was introduced to Yoga Therapy Ireland. She was so inspired by their teaching methods and their whole approach to yoga that she decided to train with them to become a Yoga teacher.
Since successfully completing her two year training course Jakki teaches Yoga at many different yoga venues throughout Co.Dublin/Kildare.
Jakki brings her love of yoga philosophy and meditation to her class to inspire and encourage others to grow and develop.
Jakki teaches Yoga for general fitness, Therapeutic Yoga and Meditation classes in OBUS Wellness Centre.
She is also one of the yoga therapists offering Yoga Therapy as a one-on-one therapy.
