Mary Powers Captures the Healing Nature of Restorative Yoga

by Restorative Yoga Poses on February 28, 2012

Mary Powers has been a restorative yoga teachers since 2007. Certified in several modalities including Ashtanga 200, Kripalu 500, IRest ( Nidra), and Restorative Yoga, Mary’s depth of experience is appreciated by all of her students. See Mary’s full profile here.

1. Restorative yoga is a beautiful style of yoga, both powerful and gentle. How did you initially come to learn about this type of yoga?

I was looking for a system of deep opening/relaxation and found it at Kripalu with teachers Richard Miller followed by Judith Lasater. The trainings I eventually participated in with these wonderful teachers were profoundly healing and joyful for me. And I’ve been teaching and/or practicing a blend of these two methods ever since.

2. What key intentions do you share with your restorative yoga students?

The idea of effortless is important to me. I hope to communicate the ease of the practice and the availability of full ultimate wisdom of the body coupled with the heart center – as we cool and rest the brain.

3. Please share any personal transformations and insights that you’ve gained through your practice of restorative yoga.

Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra have brought me into an authentic experience of Self that I could not have figured out with my thinking mind. That’s really all I can say about it.

4. In your opinion, what is the biggest benefit of restorative yoga?

Coming home to yourself by slowing down and coming into your body, with deep awareness and compassion for yourself and ultimately for others.

5. If you could name one pose that has truly supported you in a way that allowed you to open, release, and restore your body and mind unlike any other pose what was that pose and why was it so empowering?

Supported Reclining Pose. It uses a LOT of props, but is so worth it. Maybe I can post a photo for those not familiar with it. This pose is like being held. The body “waterfalls” gracefully flowing over bolsters and blankets – and I am able to sink into a feeling of depth and then openness, moving past the body and coming quickly into an alpha or theta brain wave state. Practice makes progress and my brain and body LOVE to chill in this pose. And, it can be easily modified to support a relaxation response for just about anyone.

6. Please share any specialties (ie. Aromatherapy, meditation, sound healing, etc) that you include in your classes and/or areas that you focus on in particular (anxiety, stress relief, chronic pain).

Most of the Restorative Classes include Meditation and some Breath Play. Each class is tailored to the participants, so sometimes those meditations are brief! I carefully choose sound scapes that are ambient, spacious, slow instrumentals to help set the relaxed vibration in the room. Sometimes I/we practice in silence and that is just as powerful or maybe more so. Anxiety, stress-relief and chronic pain are all topics that I believe can be alleviated by practicing some form of Restorative Yoga regularly.

To start today with Restorative Yoga classes find Mary and other teachers listed on the Restorative Yoga Teacher’s Database.

Assume nothing. Every publication has different submission guidelines. An editor who expects a column to run no more than 650 words does not want an article that runs 700 words. A literary magazine that publishes micro-fiction does not want your poetry, nor long-form fiction. A blog that adheres to AP Style does not want an article formatted in APA Style. You might imagine why editors become frustrated and annoyed when writers disobey submission processes. Just when they’re hoping to read a hidden gem they come across a query letter or manuscript that screams amateur. Ignoring specific guidelines and wasting an editor’s time are perhaps the two top pet peeves in the industry. You will, as I have, experience higher acceptance rates or at least more courteous replies when you submit professionally.

It will be important to break the shoe in, before you begin using the shoes for long-distance running. This is certainly completed by putting on these shoes for quarter-hour at one time during the period of a couple of days or perhaps a full week. If you are breaking up footwear in, make certain you wear exactly the same stockings that you may be using while you are jogging.
