Restorative Yoga is practiced on the floor, or on the wall and uses props to align the body into gentle chest openers, back bends, spinal twists and forward folds. Each of the postures are held for 5 minutes or more. Deep breathing and mindful attention to the sensations of the body and the experience of stillness is a primary focus. This class is perfect for any level student who wants to restore and renew body, mind and spirit by means of a quiet, introspective practice. It is considered to be a healing practice for people who suffer with anxiety, depression, insomnia, inflammatory diseases, back pain, side effects from chemotherapy, and many stress induced symptoms in the body/mind.
