Have you ever wanted to stay longer in savasana? This class journeys deep into supported postures with pranayama techniques and meditation. Restorative yoga is a delicious surrender into quiet, soothing postures that incorporate bolsters and blankets. With the support of props, students can achieve poses without muscular strength, facilitating release and relaxation that will calm the nervous system and coax away built-up tension. Yin yoga is a deep practice that targets the connective tissues, such as ligaments, which are not exercised in the more active flow of asana. Long-held postures can even target bones and joints, strengthening the bodys foundation.
