Restorative yoga is devoted to helping a person drop into deep relaxation. A typical class will include four to six floor poses held passively. Restorative Yoga uses a lot of props such as bolsters, straps, blocks, eye pillows, and blankets to support the person in each pose. Comfort is key when actively relaxing. Savaasana is usually 20 minutes allowing the person to rest completely and deeply. Restorative yoga might best be described as a supported conscious relaxation practice. Restorative yoga offers many benefits that can help a person with many different ailments such as insomnia, asthma, migraines, and chronic pain. This type of yoga is incredibly healing and beneficial to all body types.
