Sometimes the best balance to our modern lifestyle is to do exactly the opposite of our usual routine. Restorative yoga is like opposite therapy for those who are always moving or always making effort. This practice helps the body and mind become still and therefore allows deep changes to occur through the cultivation of surrender and compassion for where you are right now.
In restorative yoga, props are used to help place the body in specific postures and then no more effort or movement is required. This type of yoga is ideal for people who are: injured, recovering from illness, needing emotional relief, seeking a balance in the nervous system, seeking enhanced flexibility or seeking an effortless path towards meditation.
