Restorative yoga is simply that – restorative. It is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching, centering of your breath and body, and aligning the physical and mental by practicing stillness or gentle movement for extended periods of time. The props assist in helping you to hold poses longer. During the long holds of restorative yoga your muscles are allowed to relax deeply. It’s a unique feeling because props, rather than your muscles, are used to support your body. Restorative classes are very mellow, making them a good complement to more active practices and an excellent antidote to stress.
Such a good instructor, very helpful and welcoming which is what yoga should be. Great class, I always go to this one.
