Full Description

Restorative Yoga helps relieve stress and leads to deeper relaxation.
Restorative Yoga also helps relieve the effects of chronic stress and moves the spine in all directions to promote greater well-being.
Restorative Yoga is a gentle form of yoga that uses props to encourage a deep state of relaxation. By supporting various parts of your body with bolsters, blocks and blankets, you can fully surrender to the pose and relax every part of your body. Restorative yoga helps relieve the effects of chronic stress and move the spine in all directions to promote greater well-being. Poses used in restorative yoga include forward bends, backbends, twists and even inverted postures, which help reverse the effects of gravity and return fluids to the upper body.
Yoga’s stress-reduction benefits are well-known. Now, a study funded by the NIH finds that restorative yoga burns subcutaneous fat in overweight women. This could provide a way for the obese to ease into exercise when other forms of physical activity are less practical.
