Restorative Yoga is a restful, passive form of yoga designed to open the body deeply but gently. It promotes deep relaxation, induces a feeling of profound peacefulness and allows the body and mind to move into stillness. Restorative Yoga soothes your central nervous system and leaves you feeling refreshed, rested, and calm.

Anyone can practice restorative yoga. It is safe for beginners and experienced practitioners alike and for those recovering from an illness or coping with excessive stress. Wear comfortable, nonrestrictive, warm clothing and socks. All props are provided-feel free to bring your own if you prefer (especially an eye pillow if you normally use one). Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils are used for aromatherapy and applied if desired to enhance your relaxation response. For additional information about restorative yoga please contact Deb directly at gentle.yoga@hotmail.com or visit www.restorativeyogateachers.com.

FAQs: Restorative Yoga

What is Restorative Yoga?
Restorative Yoga is a restful, passive form of yoga designed to open the body deeply but gently and induce a feeling of profound peacefulness. Restorative Yoga does not involve working the body in active poses. Instead, the instructors will help you assume beneficial postures, mostly recumbent ones, with cushions and other props used to support your body so that it can release without effort. The series of postures in a restorative workshop is designed to work your spine safely in all directions and to address all the different muscles and systems of the body.

Restorative Yoga soothes your mind and your nervous system and leaves you feeling refreshed, rested, and calm.

Who can do Restorative Yoga?
Anyone can do restorative yoga—those who have never done yoga at all as well as those who have a regular yoga practice. It is safe and beneficial for people who are recovering from an illness or coping with stressful times and is equally appropriate for those who are feeling happy and healthy and simply want to enjoy something special. As with any yoga class or workshop, it is important to inform the instructors about any injuries or health issues you are currently dealing with so that they can modify postures for you if necessary.

What Should I Wear and Bring?
Wear soft, nonrestrictive clothing.
We have props available but we encourage students to bring any of the following if they have them: yoga bolsters, yoga (0r other) blankets, yoga straps, large (beach-size) towels. Please mark your items well.
