Restorative Yoga allows you to come into balance with body’s natural rhythms by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, thereby turning down the fight or flight response. It slows the heart rate and releases tension from the muscles. In Restorative Yoga, the postures are fully supported by props such as blankets, blocks, and bolsters, so there is no holding, stretching, or strengthening involved. This is a practice of being, rather than doing, which allows tension to release at a deep level. Once the relaxation response is activated, the body and mind settles in, and the effects can be felt for days after.
Come to a state of complete relaxation and allow your body and mind the space to heal.
