Yoga can promote rest and relaxation, and you don’t need to go to a class or spend hours on a mat. If you’re looking to destress and support your body and soul, these restorative poses can help.
For people who suffer from low energy, less is more! Choose restorative poses where props, such as straps, blocks, blankets and bolsters come in handy. Restorative poses are simplified modifications of traditional poses and are held longer to allow the body to rest and heal within the pose. Restorative yoga is a great way to get energy without spending energy!
