BOOK THIS PACKAGE

Restorative Yoga is suitable for anyone. It enhances our healing capacity through helping us regulate the stress response and re-balance the nervous system. The focus is not on stretching or strengthening but on releasing. We release tension in the muscles and gently stimulate the organs through long-held poses designed to support and comfort. To achieve comfort a variety of props such as blankets, blocks, bolsters and eye pillows are used.
