Restorative yoga is a gentle, slow, still style of yoga that involves long, passive holds in a series of 4-6 restful poses, the focus is not on stretching or strengthening but on releasing. We release tension in the muscles and gently stimulate the organs through long-held poses designed to support and comfort. To achieve comfort a variety of props such as blankets, blocks, bolsters, and eye pillows may be used. Restorative yoga is incredibly supportive for our nervous system and overall stress levels, reducing the production of stress hormones (cortisol and adrenaline), improving the function of our immune system, reduce muscle tension, help with insomnia, and so much more.

  • Find somewhere quiet. Loud or sudden noises may startle you, which can bring you out of relaxation
  • Have layers or blankets to stay warm. As you relax deeper your body will start to cool down. It is very common to need more layers or blankets the longer you practice.
  • Use an eye pillow or a scarf to cover your eyes. Darkness can have a soothing effect.
  • Try experimenting with weight. Sometimes having added weight can help us feel safer. Place an extra folded blanket or pillow over you belly to aid relaxation.
