In every sense of the word - restorative.
Don't get me wrong, this was still a good class and I expected it to be slower but my mind had trouble slowing down enough for it. And just as I was finally getting to the point that I was letting go of everything and loosening up my muscles, the 90 minute class was ending.
Oh well, not every class will be perfect and I still enjoyed myself. At one point, we were in a side stretch and the instructor came around and I got a light massage of my shoulders and boy were my shoulders tight. You could feel all the tension I hold in my upper body, neck and shoulders. She moved my arms around to try and loosen up my shoulders and allow them to relax. But it made me realize, I think I need to get another massage and get some more of this tension and stress released from my body.
But while we were in Viparita Karani (legs up wall), I was definitely in a zone. So much so that when we had the options to move from the pose into Savasana, I chose to stay and spend the remainder of my time in this pose. I may begin doing this at home on occasion when I need a release and to relax. Mmmm....
