Restorative Yoga…

Restorative yoga is a restful practice done on the floor, often using various props to allow people to stay in poses for a long time in order to stretch small deep muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Compared to more dynamic yoga practices, restorative yoga requires more attention and receptiveness. It involves a different kind of muscular engagement. If you haven’t tried it, find a class your area soon! Several reasons to consider a restorative yoga class:

  • In our busy hectic lives, we’ve forgotten how to relax – and relaxation is one of the most important “states of being” a person can learn (or relearn!). Restorative yoga helps practitioners truly relax and regenerates body, mind, and spirit.
  • Restorative yoga is one impressive cure for physical, emotional, or mental fatigue.
  • Restorative yoga improves flexibility without risk of injury or pain.
  • Restorative yoga relieves pain in specific body areas, including lower back, shoulders, hips, and neck and helps creates space around your joints.
  • The beneficial effects of restorative yoga reaches your nerves and organs and internal systems. Your respiratory capacity and blood circulation will improve and your nervous system will relax.
  • Restorative yoga relaxes the mind and helps when you are feeling “heavy-hearted” or “anxious” – it also helps with insomnia.
  • We’ve also forgotten how to be patient, light-hearted and live in ease. Restorative yoga develops patience, gratitude, humility, and greater self-awareness. It serves as a platform for you to come in and relax and meditate.
  • Restorative yoga is accessible to anyone – regardless of age or level of mobility.

Restorative yoga has so many wonderful benefits – try a class soon!
