When the pace of life is fast, our minds move fast, too. When we are also attracted to a strong, fast-moving Yoga practice, we can easily overstimulate ourselves — and our nervous system takes the beating. We may end up feeling easily overwhelmed, tired, with a racing mind. We get sick quicker and more often. Restorative Yoga balances a fast lifestyle and has an enormous capacity to heal physical and mental symptoms that are stress related. Practicing Restorative Yoga is a great help to anyone who is chronically ill, acutely ill, or recovering from some injuries.

BENEFITS OF RESTORATIVE YOGA: The beauty of restorative Yoga is that there is no muscular contraction involved. We believe we have to “work” to increase flexibility, but often we achieve more opening in parts of the body that we perceive as tight by softening and relaxing than through an active asana practice. During a restorative Yoga sequence, you still stretch, but you relax fully in the stretch so that tension can slowly be released. Because the body and mind relax, literally becoming softer, we also create space to get in touch again with our natural qualities of compassion and understanding of others and self.
