Poses will be held for several minutes using props to fully support you and maximize comfort, allowing you completely let go and create a pathway for restorative balance to infuse you. There are numerous health benefits to Restorative Yoga, it’s a wonderful way to increase health and loosen tight muscles. It has long been recognized for its ability to relieve stress and anxiety, boost immune function, help people heal from illness and trauma, and gently stretch and open muscles and joints.
