Restorative yoga takes the best of the traditional Hatha yoga practice and modifies it in a way that makes it more accessible to anyone in any stage of physical fitness. With the use of yoga props and supports, the body has the chance to explore and experience the benefits of yoga. For those students who perhaps have been intimidated about yoga before, feeling that they were just not ‘flexible’ enough, have a new opportunity to work where they can learn to stretch passively and yet deeply in the context of restoring their bodies. This style of practice also greatly benefits those with an active lifestyle allowing the body to begin to ‘let go’.
A deep physical discipline of yoga that enhances nourishment and strength of the meridian system (unseen pathway that continuously flows throughout the body, carrying energy and blood throughout the entire network). Holding simple Hatha yoga poses for extended periods of time (usually between 3 to 5 minutes) can allow stretch beyond the muscles to create greater flexibility in the connective tissues between the joints. Often the poses are quite basic, but an extensive mindful hold in them allows for the opening of these ‘energy channels’ to maintain a harmonious balance of body, mind and spirit.
