Give Yourself Permission to Do Less Instead of More


Welcome to Restore With Gisele.  I have a deep commitment to share this beautiful practice of Restorative Yoga which is a therapeutic style of yoga that is truly nourishing and healing on all levels of our beings-physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.  Restorative Yoga uses various props such as bolsters, blankets and blocks to fully support the body in restful poses.  Renew your body, mind and soul by giving yourself permission to do less instead of more.

SHE LET GO …. without a thought or a word, she let go.

She let go of the fear.

She let go of the judgements.

She let go of the opinions swarming around her head.

She let go of the committee of indecision within her.

She let go of all the “right” reasons. Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.

She didn’t ask for advice. She didn’t read a book on how to let go. She just let go.

She let go of all the memories that held her back.

She let go of all the anxiety that kept her from moving forward.

She let go of all the planning and all the calculation, about how to do it just right.

In the space of letting go, she let it all be. A smile came over her face. A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and moon shone forever more.
