Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga is a very gentle and slower type of yoga that promotes deep relaxation, while holding the poses for 2 mins or more using props.

Restorative poses are passive postures supported by props, such as blankets, bolsters, blocks, and straps, so that you do not need to use any muscular effort. There’s no goal of stretching or strengthening. With the support of the props and the ground, we practice releasing the grip of muscular and mental tension. The props are there to support you, to hold you up and help you rest in an alignment that takes the strain and stress of the body and mind and allows the bones to relate to each other in a way that conveys safety.

Spending time in these resting poses, the nervous system relaxes and slows the heart rate and deeply relaxes the muscles and joints. This helps to increase the flow of fresh oxygenated blood and relaxes and quietens the overall nervous system.

Restorative Yoga poses leave us nourished, soothed, deeply relaxed and well rested. It can also help with recovery from illness and injury and help manage depression and anxiety.
Allow yourself to feel supported, to surrender & heal.

Namaste,
Kaye
