Restorative Yoga Classes

Restorative Yoga Classes for Optimal Well-Being

Nutrition and exercise are two of the primary components of good physical and mental health — but what comes next? Restorative yoga classes can be a great way to support your well-being in a complementary way: calming the mind and body while improving overall energy levels.

What Are Restorative Yoga Classes?

Restorative yoga classes focus on deeply relaxing the body and calming the mind. It is typically done in a completely darkened room and with various props including blankets, pillows, and bolsters to allow the body to enter a meditative state and restore both mental and physical balance.

During a restorative yoga class, poses are held for several minutes rather than the more typical “flow” of regular yoga classes. The poses are designed to engage the nervous system and allow the body to deeply relax into the support of the props.

The Potential Benefits of Restorative Yoga

The key purpose of restorative yoga classes is to help you gain balance both physically and mentally. Because restorative yoga classes focus on relaxation, they can:

  • Provide a sense of renewal and inner-calm
  • Reduce levels of stress and tension
  • Enhance flexibility at the physical, mental and emotional levels
  • Deepen awareness and appreciation for your body
  • Promote better sleep

How Often to Take Restorative Yoga Classes

If you’re feeling the effects of current events, stress or the environment, then restorative yoga classes can be an excellent way to give your nervous system a break and realign with yourself.

Restorative classes can typically be taken as often as you like. However, most practitioners suggest taking a restorative yoga class once a week to allow the body and mind to truly settle into the practice.
