This gentle, relaxing, nourishing form of yoga is all about assuming healing poses, often with the help of props and bolsters, and relaxing into them for as much as 20 minutes…
Many high-movement yoga classes end with some restorative yoga practice to full relax the body and mind. Well-known poses you’d be likely to find in a class include child’s pose, corpse pose and legs up the wall pose – the latter of which is great for nourishing burnt-out adrenals.
What you won’t be getting from a restorative yoga class however is a workout. It’s very gentle, with the focus placed entirely on relaxation. It’s all about calming and centering the body and mind, practising stillness and meditation and bringing your focus to the present.
Restorative yoga is great for anyone who has been feeling under the weather, stressed or totally burnt out. It will restore balance and nourish the soul.
