Restorative yoga is a practice that uses props such as chairs, blocks, belts, sandbags, pillows (bolsters) and blankets for full body support. It is a slow practice that works to release deep tension, passively without active stretching. Under the guidance of a qualified and experienced teacher, this is a powerful practice and can help the student restore the body back to its normal flexibility and mobility. Restorative yoga can be very helpful in speeding up the body’s healing process after injury, surgery, or prolonged inactivity. Restorative yoga helps increase circulation, detoxification and prevents adhesions. Restorative yoga helps an unhealthy or injured body to restore itself back to its best possible state. Therefore, if you have had a recent injury or illness, this practice is for you. Restorative yoga supports the body in need of healing.

Meet your instructor Vesela
Vesela is a certified yoga instructor, with more than 8 years of experience, over 1000 hours of training and participation in the preparation of yoga teacher trainings. In addition, Vesela has a bachelor’s degree in kinesitherapy and has completed numerous courses in massage and manual therapy.
For Vesi 🙂 With two arms, two legs and all the muscles and joints, I recommend these two hands to Vesi! How we met? I literally couldn't walk and I was desperately looking for the right person and I found him! We started massages, individual gymnastics, yoga, and with persistence, the results were not long in coming ... for which I am very proud, but with persistence and the right advisor next to you, miracles happen! And her practices, which are as energizing as they are relieving... you leave recharged, awake, the blood in your body wakes up...so try it and see if it's yours, it's worth at least a try! Still, it all depends on ourselves and our choices, so feel good in your body and skin us!
I’m so grateful for having found Vesela. I was a complete beginner to yoga and naturally apprehensive about starting. Vesela is all I could ask for and more in a yoga instructor - knowledgable, calm, patient, energetic and empowering. Her knowledge of human anatomy and physiology is truly impressive - she’s deeply interested in the human body and how it works. In her work she focuses on both the outer body and the inner, mental and spiritual states; the way they come together harmoniously. Vesela works according to your specific needs and how your body feels on a given day: whether you need targeted pain or tension relief; more/less movement; more/less stretching, or whether you’d like to focus more on the mind and breathing. She works WITH you and encourages you to be aware of your body’s needs. I always leave our yoga sessions feeling better because of her warm and uplifting energy.
I met Vesela a year ago and since then I have not only more and better energy in my life, but also another friend. Everything she does is clean, bright, beautiful and...breathable. I have been practicing yoga for a long time, but for the first time someone paid such serious attention to every link of my body and what was happening to it. I specifically visited a yoga practice for the first time at Vesi's and during this year I must have missed a total of 5 times - incredible relaxation for the body and mind; great feeling to think 100% for yourself and feel that you are doing something for your soul.The massages are also totally different, as Vesi is not only a seasoned massage therapist, but a medically and anatomically perfectly prepared specialist. I recommend that you try everything she does and find what works best for you. Thank you dear Vessie!
