Restorative Yoga at Malibu Beach Inn
Nicole specializes in Restorative Yoga, which teaches students how to relax deeply in their bodies. Unlike traditional yoga, these classes welcome gentle movement followed by a series of fully-supported, long-held restorative poses. Students are then led through a series of guided relaxation practices. With a strong emphasis on meditation and breath work, students leave feeling rested and nourished.
The central aim in Restorative Yoga is to elicit the Relaxation Response, which causes the Parasympathic Nervous System (“Rest and Digest”) to kick in. This causes a decrease in heart rate and blood pressure, an increase in circulation to vital organs, a boost in immune system functioning, and improved digestion. Restorative Yoga has a profound impact on the overall health of the student, and serves as an excellent compliment to a move active physical practice.

• Quiets the mind
