Restorative yoga enables deep relaxation as you hold poses for longer periods of time with the help of props to completely support you. Restorative yoga classes are very relaxing and slow paced. Props, like blocks, bolsters, blankets, and straps are used so that you are supported in your pose comfortably. You will then hold the pose for an extended period of time. This practice is great to balance an active yoga schedule or to give yourself a break when you feel under the weather. Restorative yoga helps to combat the physical and mental effects of everyday stress, and eases common ailments such as headaches, backaches, anxiety, and insomnia with the use of restful poses and deep breathing techniques.
Please bring bolster, pillow, or block and a blanket or towel to the Restorative class if you have them.
