What is Restorative Yoga?

Restorative Yoga is a style of yoga that guides a practitioner toward a healing and recuperative experience. In order to facilitate comfort and support, it may rely on props and strong hands to support the body. Its deep focus is on unwinding, restoring one’s conditioning and balancing the entire body.

Benefits of Restorative Yoga – A Sanctuary for Body, Mind & Spirit

Restorative Yoga is arguably the finest way to dial down life’s hectic pace. It helps one transcend the mind – body barrier and to connect them, allowing that all essential need for these vital components of one’s being to communicate. The subdued quality of restorative yoga is purposed to draw your attention inward and away from life’s negative intensities. With your inward drawn awareness, Restorative Yoga becomes a sanctuary for your body and spirit. From there you may reach a deeper perception of who you are, what life will present you with, and how your personal goals can bestow something special on the world.

Restorative Yoga nurtures a heightened sense of body awareness. Most of us have invested neither the time nor cultivated the skill to acknowledge our own bodies and its many parts, nor how these interact to shape our posture. The mindful movements of Restorative Yoga will enable you to explore this power within yourself. Many have discovered much about themselves through Restorative Yoga in addition to experiencing the ultimate in relaxation.

The slow pace and deep breathing of Restorative Yoga triggers the parasympathetic nervous system. The parasympathetic system slows the body down and induces rest. Being able to kick start this system and induce its calming and soothing effect on the body is a tremendous skill to have. In essence, Restorative Yoga is a gateway into the body’s most powerful mechanism to induce deep relaxation which comforts the mind and body right down to the cellular level.
