Restorative yoga is designed to reverse the effects of stress on the body, emotions and mind. This ultra-relaxing yoga style is gaining popularity in today’s world where stress levels can reach alarming heights and stress related illness is the norm rather than the exception. This style requires no skill as a”yogi”. The postures are easy, comfortable, customised and fully supported with bolsters and pillows and are held for several minutes in a comfortable dimly lit room. The relaxing atmosphere is aided by gentle music and prompted visualisations aimed at soothing a tired and stressed nervous system. It will leave you feeling refreshed and calm, with long term health benefits for those suffering from anxiety, high blood pressure, immune disorders, digestive problems and insomnia to name just a few. All you need to bring are a water bottle, small blanket, a favourite bed pillow if desired, and wear loose comfortable clothing. All other props are provided.
