Restorative yoga

Restorative yoga is a practice of yoga that is about slowing down and relaxing deeply. With the aid of props to support your body, rather than your muscles, you can relax in the poses, without strain or pain, and so achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation. In a restorative class, you may hardly move at all, doing just a few postures in the course of an hour. Restorative yoga is very mellow, making it an excellent antidote to stress.

Restorative yoga

Restorative yoga is a practice of yoga that is about slowing down and relaxing deeply. With the aid of props to support your body, rather than your muscles, you can relax in the poses, without strain or pain, and so achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation. In a restorative class, you may hardly move at all, doing just a few postures in the course of an hour. Restorative yoga is very mellow, making it an excellent antidote to stress.

Restorative yoga

Restorative yoga is a practice of yoga that is about slowing down and relaxing deeply. With the aid of props to support your body, rather than your muscles, you can relax in the poses, without strain or pain, and so achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation. In a restorative class, you may hardly move at all, doing just a few postures in the course of an hour. Restorative yoga is very mellow, making it an excellent antidote to stress.
