Restorative Yoga is a therapeutic series of gentle, supported poses specifically designed for relaxation, breathing and rejuvenation, allowing our bodies to release stress and tension and move towards a more balanced existence. When the body is in balance, healing can take place.
Poses are supported with props to enable the body to relax without added stress or tension. Each pose is held for several minutes to allow the body and its’ tissues to ease and open gently. Restorative yoga does exactly as the name suggests – it allows the body to come to a restorative state, as opposed to the fight-or-flight state it exists in daily. This helps us to relieve the effects of negative stress encountered in daily life, and can be highly beneficial in times of fatigue, illness, and emotional strain.
When the body is in a state of relaxation, there are so many positive changes, such as decreased blood pressure, improved digestion and elimination, reduced muscle tensions, decreased insomnia, decreased anxiety, reduced general fatigue, and a decrease in blood sugar levels. These sessions are for all levels including pregnancy and most injuries. Our focus during these sessions is to create a calm and nurturing environment; our hope is that the conscious relaxation techniques we teach you can be used outside of the yoga room as well, allowing you to take the mindfulness you achieve through restorative yoga out into the world.
