Restore Yoga

WHEN & WHERE

Tuesdays 7.30pm

Classes take place at our private home studio at 78 Bassett Street, Mona Vale - heated in winter and air conditioned in summer.

WHAT IS RESTORE?

My restore class focuses on soothing your nervous system and restoring mind and body from your busy, active life.

Each week we focus on different areas of the anatomy, adjusting poses for individuals with any injuries or ailments. We learn poses that target specific parts of the body and are easy to replicate at home, in the gym, or outside. 

We learn about how the breath can bring energy into the body, remove toxins, lengthen muscles and calm the nervous system. Guided relaxation helps to unwind, leaving you feeling relaxed and revived.

It is for you if:

  • You are are exhausted from a busy, modern day life but are not particularly good at relaxing or slowing down

  • You train hard in your chosen modality - whether that is Crossfit, footy or surfing OR parenting (!)

  • You spend a lot of your week sitting at a computer or driving

  • You tell yourself you’re too tight, or not flexible enough for yoga

  • You prefer a smaller, more intimate class

  • All levels from total beginners to experienced yogis

HOW WILL I BENEFIT?

STUDENT LOVE

"Lou is one of the best instructors I have ever come across, both personally and professionally. In 2013 we approached her about teaching yoga at CrossFit Athletic and since then she has been our go-to yoga instructor for all corporate contracts, events and sports recovery classes.

Not only does she have a firm understanding of how everyday people move and feel, but she also caters for different levels always providing options to accommodate ability, experience, injuries and pregnancy, making all our members feel welcome and cared for.

10/10 from all of us at CrossFit Athletic."
