Restorative Yoga is a perfect tonic to stressful lifestyles, we all need to slow down. Most of us work too hard and are overstimulated by technology, taking time out to relax allows the body to replenishes itself. The effects of stress are cumulative and responsible for many of today’s illnesses, high blood pressure, heart problems. high cholesterol, digestive problems to name a few.
Restorative Yoga is therapeutic & healing as the nervous system switches to the parasympathetic side (rest & digest). As we relax this facilitates healing, long held inner outer tension are released in a most relaxing way. Its a similar feeling to meditation that arises as we move inwardly, this can serve as a gateway to meditation or to deepen your own practise. A feeling of spaciousness arises as you receive healing and move into a state of deep relaxation.
