A practice designed to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, the “rest and digest” mechanisms of the body. Practitioners will use yoga props to create supported postures that they will then rest in for five minutes or more. The body is made comfortable so the mind can relax and signal the brain to activate vital body systems that support immunity, digestion, and overall health and wellness. This gentle practice will include 5 or 6 yoga poses. Students will be fully supported by props in each pose so that they can completely relax and rest. Restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends. Most restorative practices are based on the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar.
