Why You Need To Know About Restorative Yoga:

为什么我们需要了解养生瑜伽

“Restorative yoga is an act of kindness towards yourself” Judith Lasater

养生瑜伽是善待自己的一种行为。

Imagine a yoga class that encourages you lie on your back, or at least a bolster ….. most of the time.   A yoga class that supports you no matter what your age or what your body is currently going through – pregnancy, anxiety, recovering from illness, menopause, breathing problems, exams, moving house, deadlines, lack of energy, moon day cycle or changing jobs.

假设你在上一节瑜伽课,导师鼓励你平躺在垫子上……大部分时间。无论你有多大年纪,无论你的身体正在经受着什么——怀孕、焦虑、大病初愈、更年期、呼吸困难、搬家、期限、精神不振、昼夜不分地上班或换了工作。

This my friends, is the wonderful world of Restorative Yoga.  A very gentle, therapeutic form of yoga helping you relax with the support of props (blankets, pillows, chairs, bolsters) to move your spine, calm your mind and heal.  You certainly don’t need any previous yoga experience or a flexible body to enjoy the benefits.

朋友们,这是一个很棒的养生瑜伽世界。这个一个很温柔的借助一些辅助性的工具帮助你放松身心的治疗方法(毯子、瑜伽砖、椅子和瑜伽垫),借助这些工具舒展移动你的脊柱,使你心境平和,身心得以恢复。当然,你事先并不需要瑜伽练习基础,也不需要一个多灵活的身体就可以达到效果。

As part of the preparation for my upcoming 4 day teacher training with visiting American yoga teacher, Judith Lasater Ph D I’m reading with great care and detail her book –  Relax and Renew – Relaxing yoga for stressful times. Judith is considered a pioneer and leading world authority on Restorative Yoga and I felt its the perfect book to share with you.

四天后的教师培训中我将去访问美国瑜伽导师,作为其中一项准备工作,我仔细研读了朱迪斯.拉萨特教授的一本书——《放松与复元——无压时代的放松瑜伽》。朱迪斯是公认的养生瑜伽方面的先驱和世界范围内的权威,我觉得这本优秀的书非常值得与你们分享。

I highly recommend “Rest and Renew”

我十分推崇“休息与复元”

The book is more of a “step by step” guide to over 50 restorative yoga postures.  In fact, the book is written in such a way that you feel like you are learning from Judith in person – whilst still in the comfort of your own home.   It’s easy to follow, lots of well explained instructions, carefully explained steps for setting up in the pose and plenty of photo’s (I personally need lots of photos to learn).

这本书绝对不仅仅是对养生瑜伽50个体位的步骤解读。事实上,你看这本书的时候就感觉到仿佛在接受朱迪斯的私人指导——就像在家里一样轻松自如。书里的内容很容易理解,指导很详细到位,对于每个体位的步骤也解读得很清楚,同时也附了很多照片说明(对于我个人来说学习的时候是很需要这些照片的)。

Great chapters on:

这些篇章很棒:

* poses for insomnia    * poses for difficulty breathing    * poses for lower back pain    * opening to menopause    * poses during pregnancy    * poses for headaches    * poses for when there is no time and you are super stressed
