Welcome to Restorative Yoga Poses!

This site is designed to help you navigate the world of restorative yoga. You will find a database of restorative yoga poses as well as a directory of studios offering restorative yoga. Enjoy!

Restorative yoga is a deeply relaxing and revitalizing practice that encourages rest and resets the body, mind and spirit. Deep relaxation is achieved when the body feels it is in a nurturing and supportive environment. This type of environment engages the parasympathetic nervous system allowing for improved digestion and the reduction of muscle tension, chronic stress, fatigue, blood pressure, serum triglycerides, and blood sugar levels. While the body relaxes in restorative yoga poses, health is promoted throughout all of the organs, tissues, and body systems.

Restorative yoga facilitates this deep relaxation through the use of props including blankets, straps, pillows, eye bags, wedges, and blocks which enable well-supported postures.

In addition, sequences are designed to optimize relaxation by promoting healthy spinal motion. A well-rounded series will include backbends, forward bends, and twists in both directions. At the conclusion a restorative yoga practice is often an inverted pose which can aide in a variety of health benefits including reduction of blood pressure, heart rate and fluid retention.

Another benefit of restorative yoga is experienced by the organs. As poses alternate from forward bend to backbend and rotation right and then left, organs are rinsed free of waste and rejuvenated with healthy blood flow.

Through regular practice of restorative yoga comes the blissful juicy moments of a balanced mind, body and spirit.

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Kudos

Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for beginner blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
