Restorative Yoga


This class is taught by:

Melinda Krichbaum

In my experience, yoga has always been an extraordinary outlet for healing. As a previous dancer and dance teacher, I have always loved witnessing people's ability to use their bodies to express themselves and find healing. I see the same in yoga. In my classes, I encourage you to use your practice to leave it all on the mat. Take the time to "empty your bucket", and then to refill it with a practice that instills self-love, nourishment, peace, and smiles. Our bodies are intricate tools with a beautiful intuition that can be expressed with alignment-focused yoga. I honor each student that shows up for themselves because I believe that is amazing, in and of itself.

I first discovered yoga 6 years ago as I sought a new way to manage old stresses. It wasn't long before I started to see and feel the profound difference that the practice had on my mind, body and spirit. I ultimately wanted to learn how to share it with others. Since completing my training, my own teacher’s soul has found true delight in teaching yoga. My goal is for students to find what serves them best in their practices; for some that may be learning how to do advanced poses, but for many it is really about finding balance and inner peace and getting in touch with their own physical and spiritual selves. To that end, while I love teaching all levels of yoga classes, I truly enjoy teaching Basic, Gentle and Restorative classes and incorporating crystal bowl sound therapy into my classes. The bowls create a sort of magic all their own, and I am grateful to be able to share that magic with Yoga Bird students of all levels!
Suitable for all levels, this deeply relaxing, rejuvenating class begins with an exploration of gentle, nurturing movements designed to help the mind and the physical body prepare for surrender to long, quiet restorative poses. Using the supports offered by bolsters, blankets and other props students will relax into poses designed to cultivate deliberate stillness and deep release. Class will end with an extended savasana and meditation incorporating the healing properties of the crystal bowls.
