TGIF! Time for the beach…
Ease into the New Year with Thai Yoga
Did you make a New Year’s Resolution to relax more, become more flexible and fit explore your spirituality or make more time for yourself? Well, we have just the solution to help you achieve all of those goals…
Thai Yoga is often called “Yoga for Lazy People.” It is done a thick mat similar to a futon on the floor with the participant dressed comfortably in yoga clothes (or even pajamas!). In Thai yoga, sore, tight muscles are compressed, energy channels are opened and the body is stretched in ways that are difficult to attain through individual exercise and yoga practice. The result of a full-body Thai treatment is often an exciting and powerful mind/body healing experience, bringing both the recipient and the practitioner to heightened states of physical and spiritual well-being.
Monica Varah, MA, CMT, E-RYT has been practicing yoga most of her life and teaching yoga for 11 years. She originally learned Thai Yoga as a way of giving better adjustments to the postures of her students in class, then fell in love with it as a means of healing and as an art form. She practices Thai Yoga and teaches yoga in Malibu, Westlake Village and Calabasas. She has been teaching Beach Yoga at Malibu Beach Inn for three years and considers herself to be good friends with the seal that lives in the rocks offshore.
Sessions are available in-room or on the beach for one hour or 90 minutes.

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.
Benefits of Restorative Yoga include:
• Quiets the mind
• Improves digestion
• Boosts Immune System
• Teaches students how to integrate relaxation techiniques into their daily lives
• Increases circulation to vital organs
• Relieves stress
• Lowers blood pressure
• Boosts growth and cell production
• Improves fertility
• Relieves habitual tension
• Increases mental focus
One of Nicole’s new students raves, “I tried her class and felt 6 feet tall and had incredible energy afterwards!”
