Why Restorative Yoga

The practice of restorative yoga is a powerful lifestyle medicine that is helpful to alleviate the stress and overwhelm of the modern age. It is a supportive physical practice that is highly accessible for all student levels and can be modified to be inclusive for a wide variety of student needs. This practice is unique in the way it has been developed from the Iyengar therapeutic model. Not to be confused with the wonderful practice of Yin that could be described as a practice of 'doing', Restorative seeks to cultivate a comfortable form and a sense of ease in the body or a state of 'being'. The use of props, an ambient space, periods of silence and holding the form for periods of time are fundamental to the practice. Some physical benefits include reduced inflammation, decrease of physical chronic stress symptoms and it can reduce pain for chronic pain conditions. Though the benefits to the mind are just as powerful with new mind patterns imprinted through the process of neuroplasticity, cultivating inner resilience through practicing parasympathetic dominance and allowing deep processing and integration.

Meet Your Instructor

Daphne is deeply knowledgeable in restorative yoga, nervous system, the art of relaxation and interweaves a BioMedical approach and passion to facilitate a supportive practice that is therapeutic in nature. Her yoga journey began in 1996 when she practiced for the first time on a humble VHS in her parents living room. Since then, she completed 350hr teacher training with BIYOME, went on to 1,000hr Yoga Therapy Course and other studies centralised around Trauma Informed Yoga and Meditation, Compassion Focussed Therapy and Yoga Therapy for Mental Health. Daphne is now a resident teacher with Yogaventures leading regular restorative classes, workshops, retreats and trainings. She draws on her experiential studies of Yoga Therapy at Biyome to curate asana, pranayam and meditation practices to create a safe and supportive environment. The style of yoga that Daphne teaches is intentionally sequenced to guide students to have their own experience and designed to cultivate new mind and bodily patterns for inner resilience, peace and tranquility. Her guiding philosophy is that yoga is a state of being and that our time on the mat is a focused practice in cultivating this state. Daphne believes yoga is a lifetime practice that follows us off the mat as well and for some it guides us through turbulent times by being the anchor in the unknown.
