Restorative Yoga is a type of yoga that focuses on relaxation through a series of simple poses that are held for long periods of time. Due to the slowness of the movements and the low-impact, low-stress nature of the poses, the practitioner can concentrate on breathing and mindfulness. The gentle sequence of poses allows students to move without pain or stress on the body, bringing deep relaxation and balance to mind and body. Classes are relaxing and slow paced. The intention is to relax as far as possible into the postures, using as little physical effort as possible. In order to allow the body to be in the most comfortable, supported position, props such as bolster pillows, soft blocks and blankets are often used. Gentle music is played and in some classes the practice may be combined with guided meditation. Restorative yoga is suitable for everyone. It is considered significantly helpful for anyone seeking relief from the stress of every-day life, as well as those who struggle with insomnia or suffer from anxiety or headaches. It is considered an ideal style of yoga for those recovering from injuries or illnesses as it is believed to boost the immune system and accelerate the body's natural healing process Activities such as practicing yoga and meditation stimulate the parasympathetic system. The parasympathetic nervous system is responsible for regulating blood pressure, slowing the heart rate aiding in digestion, and relaxation of the body.
