Restorative Yoga (North)

A practice designed to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, the “rest and digest” mechanisms of the body.  Practitioners will use yoga props to create supported postures that they will then rest in for five minutes or more.  The body is made comfortable so the mind can relax and signal the brain to activate vital body systems that support immunity, digestion, and overall health and wellness.  This gentle practice will include 5 or 6 yoga poses.  Students will be fully supported by props in each pose so that they can completely relax and rest. Restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends. Most restorative practices are based on the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar.

Katharine “Kat” Wheatley was certified as a RYT-200 in 2013 with YogaWorks and is a registered member of Yoga Alliance. Kat was trained as a classical ballet dancer, studying and performing for nearly 18 years with the Fletchers and with the Land of the Sky Civic Ballet in Asheville, NC. Kat started practicing yoga occasionally at a gym almost 25 years ago, but it wasn’t until 2011 that she committed to a steady and (almost) daily practice of yoga. Kat is currently manager of Key Largo Yoga and in addition to overseeing workshops and special events, she manages the schedule, our team of teachers, and our social media connections. Kat subs classes when the regular teacher is unavailable and as such can teach any level of Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Aerial, Gentle, SUP Yoga, and Yin. Kat continues her education as often as possible through her own practice, with her mentor Kathy Shirley, and by attending multiple workshops, conferences and events throughout the year. She maintains two of her own classes on the schedule - you can find her teaching Gentle Candlelight yoga Monday evenings at our south location, or her signature Fun Flow class on Fridays at 4:30pm at our North Studio.
