- What is the main focus of Restorative Yoga?-Restorative yoga is about letting go and relaxing. Restorative yoga enables deep relaxation as you holding poses for longer periods of time with the help of props to completely support you. The main focus of Restorative Yoga is that by relaxing in poses, with the aid of props, without strain or pain, we can achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation.
- Is Restorative Yoga For Beginners?– You may feel a bit overwhelmed with all the props but our teacher Gerry will help you and make sure you have the right support. We do have extra blocks so don’t worry- you don’t need any experience to do this class.
- Why practice Restorative Yoga? -Research has found that restorative yoga may improve well-being and fatigue, improve quality of life, and reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety. Yoga is also a promising tool for stress management. Maybe you don’t feel ready for a more active class- you may have been ill or be struggling with your energy levels. This class is a gentle introduction to practising yoga postures with support and no effort. Most of it is floor based.
- How long do you hold Restorative Yoga Postures? The longest we hold Restorative yoga postures usually in this class is 5 minutes but you can hold them for longer as long as you feel comfortable.
