Restorative Yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down, relaxing and opening your body through passive stretching. In a class where you hardly move at all, all postures are held between 5 to 10 minutes at a time.

By supporting the body with props, we alternately stimulate and relax the body and move towards balance.
