Restorative yoga is a therapeutic style developed from Iyengar yoga, designed to heal the whole body’s system from stress, trauma, disease and injury.
In this practice props support the body into deep and complete relaxation through various postures. When our system doesn’t need to tighten or protect us, we can release that tension and work towards healing instead. Remember: It is the same force that holds which heals. We allow the intelligence of our bodies to do the work in this practice of non-doing.
