Restorative Yoga facilitates health and relaxation by supporting the body in easy and comfortable positions with props. You can use items available in your environment such as pillows, couch cushions, blankets, and bolsters. If possible, please have a yoga mat or rug to practice on along with three blankets, pillows, and two yoga blocks available.

Restorative Yoga is profoundly relaxing. It soothes the central nervous system, supports digestion, and improves mood and sleep.
