What is Restorative Yoga?

My five-day Restorative Yoga course in October gave me all sorts of delicious ideas to bring to our classes together.

This style of yoga encourages physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. Appropriate for all levels, it is practiced at a slow pace, focusing on long holds, stillness, and deep breathing. Perfect for relaxation.

Benefits of restorative yoga

  • Decreases the stress hormone cortisol.
  • Improved sleep.
  • Balances the nervous system.
  • Enhances flexibility.
  • Releases held tension from the muscles, joints, tissues.
  • Aids recovery and healing from past or current trauma.
