What is Restorative Yoga?
Restorative Yoga is suitable for people of all fitness levels, as it is a practice that centres around slowing down and unwinding the body through passive stretching. This type of yoga is different to many other contemporary types of yoga because of the slow pace, where only five or six yoga poses are practiced in a class.
Restorative Yoga helps us relax in order to relieve stress, calm the mind and allow the body to release accumulated tensions. Props are used to help students relax completely into a pose. A typical Restorative Yoga class will work the spine in every direction, both soothing and stimulating internal organs, leaving the practitioner feeling re-energised.
