Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga is a practice that uses props such as chairs, blocks, belts, sandbags, pillows (bolsters) and blankets for full body support. It is a slow practice that works to release deep tension, passively without active stretching. Under the guidance of a qualified and experienced teacher, this is a powerful practice and can help the student restore the body back to its normal flexibility and mobility. Restorative yoga can be very helpful in speeding up the body’s healing process after injury, surgery, or prolonged inactivity. Restorative yoga helps increase circulation, detoxification and prevents adhesions. Restorative yoga helps an unhealthy or injured body to restore itself back to its best possible state. Therefore, if you have had a recent injury or illness, this practice is for you. Restorative yoga supports the body in need of healing.

Why would you need to practice Restorative Yoga?

Deep relaxation

Do you remember the feeling of being truly calm; your body soft, warm and flexible? Do you remember feeling so comfortable in your own skin that you hardly notice your physical body? Restorative yoga is a great way to access deep relaxation

Improve your sleep

The more relaxed you are, the better your chances of getting a good night's rest. Scientific studies have found that yoga is an effective intervention for dealing with sleep problems by increasing melatonin and reducing hyperarousal

Gentle on the body

Restorative yoga practices are gentle on the joints, and consistent practice can strengthen the connective tissues that surround bones and joints
