Restorative yoga is an incredible way of helping the body and mind repair and heal. We activate the para-sympathetic system / relaxation response balancing the entire nervous system and set up the body for deep healing, growth and repair.
This practice is a combination of Hatha, Iyengar and Yin yoga styles, designed to target and alleviate specific health concerns from the mind and body. These range from body injuries, chronic pain to lifestyle dis-eases such as high blood pressure, diabetes to mental dis-eases such as anxiety etc.
A very gentle practice, with long passive holds, you’ll be aided by props to stay in restorative asana for up to 10 minutes per posture.
