What is Restorative Yoga?


Restorative Yoga is a term used to describe a collection of poses that open the body passively, using blankets, bolsters, and other props, to enhance the work of gravity.
Restorative yoga is traditionally practiced in a warm, quiet room, and poses are held without muscle tension for longer periods of time than active poses.


Restorative yoga is deeply relaxing. It has been described as yoga for the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. It helps to enhance respiration and quiet the “flight or fight” response that is all too prevalent in our lives, thereby relieving the symptoms of stress.

Restorative yoga is absolutely perfect for newcomers, and everyone at every level is welcome.
