Restorative Yoga

nidrayoga2What is Restorative Yoga ? 

“Restorative yoga” enables deep relaxation as you holding poses for longer periods of time with the help of props to completely support you. 

Deep slow “Breathing” is a big part of Restorative Yoga .

The main focus of Restorative Yoga is that by relaxing in poses, with props, without strain or pain, we can achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation.

A restorative yoga practice usually consists of 6- 10 poses supported by props for an extended period of « five minutes » or more each. 

When we are fully supported in each asana, we are invited to penetrate the body from a new perspective, rest the mind in stillness, and trellis the prana for maximum health and healing.

A typical session lasts 30-45 minutes. It is most often taught with the student lying down in Shavashana being guided by a teacher. Can be done in bed too.
