Restorative Yoga Therapeutics

Restorative Yoga Therapeutics involves carefully sequenced and artfully propped restorative yoga postures designed to balance the nervous system and emotional body. In these postures, the entire body stretches gently while supported by yoga props such as bolsters and blankets. Individually-designed support in each posture helps minimize muscle contraction and quiet blood pressure, heart rate, and brain function. Gentle guided meditation and basic breath work techniques help create a safe space for the emergence of practitioners’ innate wisdom and healing capacity. Restorative Yoga Therapeutics helps to quiet the mind, balance the nervous system, deepen the relaxation response, reduce anxiety and stress, soothe the emotional body, heal depression, stimulate restful sleep, and enhance immunity.
