Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yogaaaaahhhh!

What is Restorative Yoga? The Yoga Journal says, “Some yoga poses taste a little bit sweeter than others. And if yoga were a smorgasbord, restorative postures would most definitely be at the dessert table. These soothing and well-supported poses offer us the opportunity to linger quietly for a few moments and savor the simple sweetness of life…restorative poses have a particular ability to leave us nourished and well rested. Your body will thank you with profound sighs of relief.”

Restorative yoga is good/helpful for those suffering from stress, anxiety, insomnia but mostly it’s like dessert—which is good for everyone. Restorative yoga has actually been

shown to be helpful for menopausal women and even PTSD. But I don’t want it to sound like Restorative is just for troubled people. Restorative yoga is for everyone even the most driven active people can benefit from this practice
