*Restorative Yoga 
is a slow-paced deeply powerful meditative (often candle lit) practice open to all levels and ages. Only a few poses are practiced per class, together with guided relaxation, and yogic breathing. This meditative practice balances the nervous system and encourages emotional/physical healing as well as relaxation, through the utilization of props -such as blankets and bolsters- to dissolve stress and tension physically as well as mentally.







**Pranayama -extension or expansion of breath-
The word  Pranayama consist of two words, "Prana" -life force energy- and "Ayama" -expansion, extension- . By controlling the way one breaths one is able to calm or invigorate the body and to regulate one's life force to connect to a deeper level of consciousness. This is the core of Pranayama practice. 
"Pranayama is the means by which a yogi tries to realize within his individual body the whole cosmic nature, and attempts to attain perfection by attaining all the powers of the universe." Swami Sivananda.

"This Soul of mine within the heart is smaller than a grain of rice, or a barely-corn, or a mustard seed, or a grain of millet, or the kernel of a grain of millet; this Soul of mine within the heart is greater than the earth, greater than the atmosphere, greater than the sky, greater than these worlds. Containing all works, containing all desires, containing all odors, containing all tastes, encompassing the whole world, the unspeaking, the unconcerned - this Soul of mine within the heart, this is Brahman." 

Chandoga Upanishad

"Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart.
And try to love the questions themselves …
Don't search for the answers,
They could not be given to you now,
Because you would not be able to live them,
And the point is, to live everything.
Live the questions now.
Perhaps then, someday in the future, 
You will gradually, without even noticing it,
Live your way into the answer.

Rainer Maria Rilke -

"I will tell you a secret, something they don't teach you in your temple. 
The Gods envy us. They envy us because we are mortal, because any moment might be our last. 
Everything is more beautiful because we are doomed. 
You will never be lovelier than you are now.
We will never be here again."

"Krishna then told the brothers the story of Valaka. A hunter called Valaka shot an arrow at a creature he saw drinking water from afforest pond. Only after he released the arrow did he realize that the creature was blind. He regretted releasing the arrow but it was too late - the arrow hit the target and blind animal was dead. As Valaka approached the animal, full of remorse, flowers fell upon him form the sky and the Devas appeared before him to thank him. They said 'This blind beast you feel sorry for was actually a demon that was planning to destroy the world. By killing him you have saved the world. 'Thus', said Krishna, sometimes an action we think is wrong turns out to be right.'"
