Restorative Yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching with the use of props to support the body in a way that gravity aids in the performance. Postures are held for a longer duration so that one will have more time to settle into the pose and truly relax.
Benefits: As the name suggests, this technique restores balance in your body and improves flexibility, relaxes the body and the mind, enhances healing and fastens recovery. It can help in pain management too. It instills mindfulness and brings down stress levels.
