New Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra

Restorative yoga offers gentle relaxation based yoga poses with the use of lots of props for deep support and ease, supporting the release of deeply held  tension, balancing the parasympathetic nervous system and deepening a profound state of inner stillness. During the practice of restorative yoga we will be using ancient traditional yoga breathing practices to assist us in reaching the deepest state of relaxation, in both mind and body. I’ll be including short visualisations and chakra balancing. The session will always be based on an appropriate theme such as some of the principles of yoga, the yamas and niyamas, compassion, self love, forgiveness and much more.  

This will be followed with a soothing journey into yoga nidra, which is an ancient form of regenerative healing through which you are guided into a state of deep rest and relaxation.

Yoga nidra is well known for its therapeutic benefits in supporting the nervous system, improving the body’s immune system and bringing about balance of the mind and the emotions.



Some of the things that people have said about the Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra workshop.

Really enjoyed your Restorative Yoga workshop this morning. I would recommend this to anyone who wishes to get away from the stressful life we al live in and totally chill out.


Thank you so much for a morning of restorative yoga, it was fabupous, I felt so relaxed and restored, I would highly recommend it to anyone. We all need some time out in our lives and this was perfect.


I have just experienced my first restorative workshop today with Rita Thompson and “Wow” the results were truly amazing! This is like no other yoga class that I have attended. Gently centering around comfort and support, the postures used were so simple and yet incredibly effective. Rita also combined this with with a veriety of yoga breathing techniques so it felt more like a deep tissue massage, being nourishing & clensed from the inside out. I now feel incredibly calm, balanced and whole, if you are looking for a yoga that is kind to your body & soothing for your mind, then this is for you.. Ritas restorative yoga is phenomenal and I cant recommend it enough. ooh and she uses beautiful music too.


Thank you so much Rita, yesterdays class is still working on me. I went to bed early and slept like a log.
