Restorative yoga is ideal for individuals of all ages and levels, supportive for those looking to relax and open the body for healing. This class is suitable for people who are pregnant, recovery from illness/injury, or individuals just looking to step back from our busy lives. In restorative yoga, props and or chairs are used as an optional choice to support the body so that you can hold poses for longer, allowing you to open your body through passive stretching. Restorative postures are usually adapted from supine or seated yoga poses with the addition of blocks, bolsters, and blankets to eliminate unnecessary straining. Restorative classes are usually very relaxing and are a good complement to more active practices.
