Take a yoga break! Start your restorative yoga practice now.
Restorative yoga is a gentle and calming practice that focuses on deep relaxation and rejuvenation of the mind, body, and spirit. It can be beneficial for individuals of all ages and fitness levels, regardless of their yoga experience.
It is a passive form of yoga that involves the use of props, such as blankets, bolsters, and blocks, to support the body in different postures. You can use anything around the house. The goal is to encourage relaxation and release tension from the body by supporting and breathing in poses for extended periods of time, typically 5-20 minutes, allowing the body to fully surrender and release any stress or tension that may be present, leading to deep physical and mental relaxation.
Anxiety + Stress Release
Restorative yoga is often described as a form of active relaxation because while the body is relaxed, the mind remains alert and aware. This can be helpful in reducing stress and anxiety, as well as promoting better sleep and overall well-being.
5 Benefits of Restorative Yoga
Stress reduction: Restorative yoga encourages the body to relax and release tension, which can help reduce stress levels and promote relaxation.
Improved flexibility: Restorative yoga poses are designed to gently stretch and release tension from the muscles, which can improve flexibility over time.
Enhanced mood: Restorative yoga can help reduce anxiety and depression, leading to an overall improvement in mood.
Better sleep: Restorative yoga is a great way to prepare the body for restful sleep by promoting relaxation and reducing tension.
Increased focus: Restorative yoga can help increase focus and concentration by promoting mindfulness and present moment awareness.
5 Must Try Restorative Yoga Poses
Supported Child's Pose: This pose involves sitting on the heels with a bolster or pillow placed between the legs. The body is then folded forward over the bolster, allowing the forehead to rest on the support.
Legs-Up-The-Wall Pose: This pose involves lying on the back with the legs extended up against a wall. This pose can help promote relaxation and reduce stress.
Supported Bridge Pose: This pose involves lying on the back with a bolster or block placed underneath the hips. The arms are extended out to the sides with the palms facing up, allowing the chest to gently open.
Reclining Bound Angle Pose: This pose involves lying on the back with the knees bent and the soles of the feet together. A bolster or pillow is then placed under the knees for support.
