When folks ask me about Restorative Yoga, I often joke and say "it's sleepy time yoga"! After a few "ohhh", "that sounds interesting" comments I then get into how I really feel about the Restorative Yoga practice; to me this is one of the most advanced practices. I love this practice, and many folks don't know too much about it.
So what REALLY is Restorative Yoga? Here are a few tidbits about this practice...
We work very hard in our lives, and while we may sleep, we rarely take time to rest. Restorative yoga poses help us learn to relax and rest deeply and completely. During deep relaxation, all the organ systems of the body are benefited, and a few of the measurable results of deep relaxation are the reduction of blood pressure, serum triglycerides and blood sugar levels in the blood, the increase of the “good cholesterol” levels, as well as improvement in digestion, fertility, elimination, the reduction of muscle tension, insomnia and generalized fatigue.” -Judith Hanson Lasater, Ph.D
