Restorative yoga is the perfect antidote to today's busy lifestyle. Restorative yoga is about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. With a restorative yoga class, you may hardly move at all, doing just a few postures in the course of an hour. It is a completely different experience than most modern types of yoga.
Most yoga classes tend to be an active practice where you move from pose to pose, building heat and increasing your strength and flexibility in equal measure.
Restorative yoga is different. Each pose is held for a longer period of time, which allows your muscles to relax deeply. It's a unique feeling because props (rather than your muscles) are used to support your body. Restorative classes are very relaxed and the perfect way to start your week.
