Restorative yoga is one type of practice we can use to experience the healing or therapeutic benefits of yoga.
More and more people today are feeling stressed, anxious or depressed. Through supported poses, restorative yoga helps to sooth the nervous system and alleviate chronic tension. It is an excellent opportunity to disconnect from the activity of daily life and to slow down the pace. Find a quiet room, gather all your props and get ready for a calm, relaxing start to your day.
