60 minute Restorative Yoga for Mental Health

This Friday on Yoga with Bird we have a special guest from Yoga with Melissa. Melissa West, Ph.D. trained with Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy and her therapeutic approach to restorative yoga is the perfect antidote to the mental and emotional stress we have been experiencing during the lockdown and isolation due to covid-19.

This year, with the worldwide experience of covid-19, it is an understatement to say that many of us have most likely been finding it difficult to manage how we think, feel, and act with respect to daily stresses. Over time, this takes its toll on our mental health.

Mental health, defined by the World Health Organization, is “a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.

This restorative yoga class will allow you to release the physical, mental, and emotional tension from a difficult year and to release into the comfort and support of your props, the ground, your blankets, eye pillows and bolsters.

Comments from Bird: I want to send my gratitude to Melissa and her husband Tim who took the time to film and create such a beautiful and much needed class for you all. It’s such a special collaboration as Melissa was one of the first yoga teachers i’ve experienced the practice of yoga with right at home on YouTube. I resonate so much to her teachings and the wisdom that she shares with each practice. I have learned so much from Melissa over the years from her beautiful and healing classes, i am beyond grateful to have the opportunity to come together and not only share the practice worldwide but uplift each other at the same time. I hope that you enjoy this wonderful class as much as i do! Thank you Melissa & Tim for these incredibly life changing offerings 🙏
