Restorative yoga is a powerful healing tool that helps to reduce stress and support the body’s innate responses toward balance and health. As a very gentle form of yoga,restorative yoga integrates resting postures, breath techniques, and meditative relaxation. In restorative postures we use props such as bolsters and blankets to fully support the body in different resting positions.

While resting in these fully supported poses, tightness and tension in muscles and connective tissue can gently release and areas of stiffness can gradually unwind leading to more ease, greater range of motion, and better whole body alignment. Many restorative postures help to create more space and free in the movement of the respiratory diaphragm, and therefore can facilitate deeper, more easeful breathing. In each restorative posture we encourage awareness of breathing and meditative focus to help calm the nervous system, and profoundly relax the body and mind.

Restorative Yoga techniques may be helpful in the treatment of nervous system disorders such as insomnia, hypertension, anxiety, and specific ailments such as skin conditions and hormonal irregularities, and may be especially helpful for improving mental health. Restorative postures and sequences can be modified to target specific organ systems, sensory integration, mental/emotional qualities, and the energetic qualities of each unique season.
