Restorative yoga might best described as a supported, conscious body/mind relaxation practice. When supported with props, the body relaxes and opens, releasing tension and stress. Restorative poses offer benefits to both the body and mind. Students will hold a small number of relaxing poses for extended periods of time to enjoy some deep meditative time and stress relief.
Yin yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. Yin yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. Yin yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and invigorating (yang) styles of yoga. Suitable for students of all levels.
