Restorative Yoga is a passive yoga style in which we do yoga postures with the help of props ( blocks and blankets for example). In this style of Yoga the body calms and relaxes through the yoga poses.
The Benefits of Retorative Yoga are many, I will list a few here:
-Help the body heal because heling occurs when the body is calm.
-Help in the treatment of specific conditions of the nervous system like: High blood pressure, insomnia and anxiety.
-Also helps in the treatment of injuries and alignment of bones in general.
-Aids with low back and neck pain.
-Helps in the treatment of auto immune sickness.
How does Restorative Yoga help the body?
Restorative Yoga helps the body combat the over stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system in which we tend to live our lives. We do this by using the breath, consciously and constantly during the class.
