Restorative yoga is a system of yoga which uses props to help facilitate yoga poses to create a more relaxed pose. This provides a quiet nurturing environment for teaching the body on how to rest deeply therefore releasing the impact of stress and returning our bodies to homeostasis. It is considered to be safe modality by many medical doctors and health care professionals. Mindful activity and function is a fundamental aspect of yoga therapeutics. In this support, our bodies can eliminate bio mechanical stress, providing a more healing approach on the cellular level.
