Taking time out each day to relax and renew is essential to living well. Restorative yoga offers nurturing physical postures based on yoga for deep relaxation and rest. Relaxation is the antidote to stress.
Restorative yoga poses are a form of "active relaxation." By supporting the body with props, we alternately stimulate and relax the body to move toward balance. Some poses have overall benefit, others target an individual part, like the lungs or heart. All create specific physiological responses that are beneficial to health and can reduce the effects of stress-related disease. Generally restorative poses are for those times when you feel weak, fatigued, or stressed from your daily activities.
