Restorative yoga is a deeply relaxing, yet invigorating practice that is beneficial for every type of student. Holding postures for 2 – 7 minutes on each side improves flexibility by stimulating the connective tissues, tones the internal organs, and improves circulation. Each pose includes options for exploration, as well as guidance on the use of props for additional support. Restoratives are great for athletes, those suffering from stress, recovering from injury, or seeking overall balance. They are also perfect for beginners.
