EVERY WEDNESDAY AT 8 PM 75 MIN CLASS
Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching, doing just a few postures in the course of an hour. It is a completely different experience than most contemporary yoga. Restorative classes are very mellow, making them a good complement to more active practices and an excellent antidote to stress.
During the long holds of restorative yoga, however, your muscles are allowed to relax deeply. It's a unique feeling because props, rather than your muscles, are used to support your body. A sequence typically involves only five or six poses, supported by props that allow you to completely relax and rest. Held for 5 minutes or more, restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends.
