Relax and Restore

“Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured” B.K.S. Iyengar

Restorative Yoga is an opportunity to relax the mind and the body. This yoga style is  is not about strengthening the body or making it more flexible. Restorative yoga is a form of yoga that seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props. Bolster, blankets, eye pillows and blocks are used to support the body so the pose can be held for longer, enabling the body to open through passive stretching.

While some restorative yoga poses are beneficial to the entire body, others target specific parts of the body. Restorative yoga  provides healing to the body and the min. It is useful in reliving stress and fatigue from daily activities. It is useful for those with breathing issues, chronic conditions such MS, Fibromyalgia, ME etc. It can also help  recovery from illness and injury or overcome emotional depression and anxiety that may be caused by traumatic life events such as divorce, job loss or bereavement.

Restorative yoga activates the parasympathetic nervous system triggering the body’s “Rest and digest” response. Including a regular practice of restorative yoga will make the body less vulnerable to stress related illness.
