Restorative Yoga: Enables one to return to a natural state of balance physically, mentally, and emotionally allowing the body to open through passive stretching. Restorative Yoga is the practice of placing the body into a Yoga pose (asana) using the support of props such as blankets, blocks, pillows, bolsters, or chairs. These poses hold and maintain the position of the body as physical and mental tension dissolves and melts away. In this supported state, the asana can be held for a longer period of time which facilitates a state of deeper relaxation allowing for the innate intelligence of the body to reintegrate the system to its natural state of balance and peace. Restorative poses can benefit all Yoga practitioners regardless of one’s level of Yoga practice. 75min
