Restorative Yoga Practice

Restorative yoga is a restful practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching.

If you take this restorative class, you may hardly move at all, doing just a few postures over the course of an hour. Restorative yoga is a completely different experience than most other styles of yoga.

Restorative yoga is suitable for beginners and practitioners of all levels. By definition, restorative yoga is a restful practice that holds yoga poses (asanas) for a longer duration using props like yoga blocks, blankets, and bolsters. It is a practice of deep relaxation that emphasizes the meditative aspect of yoga—the union of body and mind. Through the use of props for support, the postures are held almost effortlessly.

More about restorative yoga practice

​Restorative yoga is a slow and grounding practice. In a typical Restorative yoga class, you might transition in and out of three to five poses total. Poses in Restorative yoga provide students with extra support via bolsters, blankets, blocks, and sandbags. Restorative yoga classes don’t typically include standing postures. 

​Restorative yoga is a quiet practice with plenty of space for silence and meditation. Silence helps students to drop into the practice without distraction. This also facilitates healing, because the brain isn’t tasked with processing excess information. In addition to healing, Restorative yoga helps with injury prevention. It’s designed to help students to be more adaptable and responsive, so energy can flow more freely throughout their bodies.

​When the body enters a state of relaxation the mind can also consciously relax as tension is released from both body and mind. The only work that’s required on your part during a restorative yoga practice is to pay attention to your breath and become aware of any sensations or thoughts that may arise.
