How to Relax and Renew the body and mind
The idea of restorative yoga is to promote deep relaxation while holding the poses for longer periods of time (10 to 20 minutes), with the help of props.
The parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated, promoting relaxation, which helps balance and heal the body. This practice is great to balance an active yoga schedule or to give yourself a break when you feel under the weather.
Restorative Yoga balances a fast lifestyle and has an enormous capacity to heal physical and mental symptoms that are stress related.
I graduated in Restorative Yoga with Judith Hanson Lasater, one of the American founder of this deep therapeutical technique.
