Restorative Yoga › Norman Blair
Restorative yoga allows the body to experience deep relaxation through a series of long, passive stretches that are fully supported by props so that the body does not feel any tension at all. Restorative yoga is a lovely way to to begin releasing habitual long-held tension, calm the nervous system and promote relaxation. It is a floor-based practice which helps us to slow down, rest and find stillness, and whilst restorative yoga is not physically demanding, it can be challenging to stay in long holds with few distractions and fully follow the movement of the breath in and out. If you enjoy restorative yoga, you may also like yin yoga, meditation and yoga nidra.
