Purpose of Restoration Yoga
Rest is when the body naturally heals, rejuvenates and reprograms itself. Proper movement encourages the body and mind to heal.
Restoration Yoga is a unique blending of the relaxation properties of restorative yoga with the healing art of yoga therapy. When used correctly Restoration Yoga can help a person reduce blood pressure, rebalance the nervous system, reduce symptoms of fatigue, muscle tension, and offer a sense of improved wellbeing. It can also improve range motion and reduce symptoms of pain from muscle, joint and nerve.
