Restorative Yoga, also known as the “Rest and Digest” is a form of yoga to help de-stress busy life and thus regaining parasympathetic dominance, promoting a sense of calm, allowing the body to heal and avoid illness.
A restorative yoga sequence is made up of usually only about five or six poses. These poses are supported by props that allow you to completely relax into the given stretch. All poses are held for 5-10 minutes and all you do while holding the pose is breathe deeply and relax. The practice allows the mind to become quieter and the body to soften, open and relax deeply. In this restful state, the nervous system is given the chance to shift into ‘repair and renew’ mode, making Restorative Yoga a profoundly nurturing practice.
Restorative yoga is beneficial for everybody. It can be particularly helpful during times of stress and fatigue, insomnia and anxiety and for those working with physical challenges. It is also a perfect complement to other sports or more dynamic yoga practices.
