Sattva Restore Foundational
The perfect class for you to restore, rest and rejuvenate the body and mind.
The Sattva Yoga lineage, relates to the body by exploring four different perspectives: front body, back body, side body, and centre strength body. These are expressed in a four-month practice cycle; one month dedicated to each perspective using a uniquely designed posture sequence that lends insight into how to systematically organize and stack the body. This method is a system to begin to understand the anatomy with a 360-degree view through direct experience so that the body can rest into the strength and comfort of an aligned structure.
During this class we will explore deep openings within the body, working mainly with seated and floor postures to target the most vital areas we need to stretch and mobilize: the pelvis and the spine. This is a very subtle and effective practice leaving you feeling truly restored and rejuvenated on every level.

In Sattva Yoga, we relate to the body by exploring four different perspectives: front body, back body, side body, and centre strength body. These are expressed in a four-month practice cycle; one month dedicated to each perspective using a uniquely designed posture sequence that lends insight into how to systematically organize and stack the body. This method is a system to begin to understand the anatomy with a 360-degree view through direct experience so that the body can rest into the strength and comfort of an aligned structure.The four perspectives of front, back, side and strength speak to unique lines of awareness that address the whole body. This mapping system creates a focal point for the mind, which then translates into tangible, physical expression as the tissue begins to respond intelligently and a pathway of sensation emerges.
