Restorative Yoga rejuvenates the whole body, mind and nervous system. BKS Iyengar, who was the Father of traditional restorative yoga often said, “Health is not a commodity to be bargained for. It has to be earned”. Our health is earned through addressing every part of the body – every organ every bone- every muscle – and every cell of the body.
Traditional Restorative Yoga looks to use the placement of props therapeutically to support the body in all positions. Restorative Yoga has a strong backing of scientific evidence that has widened its growing popularity. It is suitable to all people of all ages and is a wonderful way to guide anyone into yoga. It is an imperative teaching tool for both personalised therapeutic sessions and class scenarios.
Restorative Yoga offers us all a deep experience of meditative asana – the sacred opportunity to witness ourselves from within. The long and uninterrupted practice of asanas practised with meditative awareness brings us complete mental freedom and heightened personal power.
