Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through stretching. Doing only a handful of poses throughout the class and using props, restorative yoga will calm and reset your mind and body. Restorative yoga is mainly for clients seeking repair to injury, stress or illness. Classes are small to ensure each client receives appropriate attention.
History of Restorative Yoga: B.K.S. Lyengar helped bring yoga to the West in the 1950s. He introduced a style of Yoga into his classes in which he used props to hold the body in positions for long periods of time instead of the body’s muscles. Judith Hanson Lasater later created an entire practice called restorative yoga in 2007, based on Lyengar’s ideas.
