Swami Karma Karuna

Swami Karma Karuna, founding member and director of Anahata Yoga Retreat, NZ, is an engaging, intuitive yoga teacher with more than 25 years of training and experience. She specialises in therapeutic applications of yoga, yoga nidra relaxation and pranic practices and shares in a simple and practical way, inspiring people to access and apply yogic practices in their own lives. 


Restore and Relax with Restorative Yoga

Slow down and open up your body with a series of restorative asanas that will leave your body feeling stretched out and recharged. During the practice, your muscles are invited to fully surrender into a deeply nourished and relaxed state as your asked to move consciously from pose to pose.

Props such as pillows and bolsters are usually used in conjunction with the poses to help give further support to the body. Restorative practices are a good way to balance out a fast paced life, and provide a gentle and targeted antidote to stress.
