Anna is one of my favourite teachers of all time. She is a teacher's teacher as well as has the ability to keep things simple and straight talking. It was in her restorative classes that I had the "restorative light bulb moment". As I have gotten older, having a restorative practice and a meditation practice has been essential to my mental and physical self-care practice. Anna has the ability to explain the benefits of the restorative practice and understand how important it is to pay attention to the nervous system in such a way that you shift your perspective. We have spent our life time learning how important "doing" is. Anna is reminding us of the importance of "being". This book is a wonderful book to keep in your library as a teacher and as a practitioner.
I believe that Anna Ashby's important book is destined to become a classic and the signature book on restorative yoga. A much needed guide in this age of chaos and stress.
This considered book is a timely reminder that the essence of Yoga is by definition restorative. Anna Ashby's years of practice and teaching reflected in her inspired writing, not only point the way to a profoundly authentic yoga experience, but make you want to get out the props and accept her invitation there and then. A valuable contribution to the profession.
