Restorative Yoga is a gentle conscious body and mind relaxation practice. Through restorative yoga you learn how to let go and surrender your whole self into a peaceful and deeply relaxed state where the body, mind and spirit come to find a blissful balance in unity and an overall sense of well-being. It is a sequence of about 4 to 5 poses only, where each pose is held for an extended period of time using plenty of props such as bolsters, pillows, blankets and blocks in order to elliminate any kind of physical exertion. As a result a practioner is to able to release tension and stored-up toxins that can cause illness and discover a renewed sense of peace and calm.
Restorative poses have been proven to offer benefits to both the body and mind, such as lowering the heart rate, reducing high blood pressure as well as for conditions ranging from insomnia and fatigue to chronic pain and headaches to anxiety and depression.
