Experience our restorative yoga at Wellspring Center for Health & Healing.
This type of yoga is a way to slow down your body and open it through different stretching techniques. The major difference between conventional yoga and restorative yoga is the posture. Normally, people follow various postures while doing conventional yoga but during restorative yoga, there are fewer postures to work with. Hence, when doing it for the first time, you will find it completely different.
During long sessions of restorative yoga, you offer deep relaxation to your muscles. The feeling is unique, as you use props instead of your muscles to provide sufficient support to the body. Restorative sessions are quite mellow, which makes it a better alternative to the rigorous yoga classes. It serves as an effective antidote to stress.
Procedure and Props
Our yoga trainers use best techniques, which helps to draw maximum benefit out of the restorative yoga. The extensive use of props makes your session more interesting and relaxing. Since these props provide support to your body, you can continue the session for a longer period.
The postures are the adaptations of conventional yoga, involving seated or supine poses. During these postures, you can use blankets, blocks or bolsters, which helps to eliminate unnecessary strains. For example, seated posture can turn into a restorative one, if you place various folded blankets on your legs. This provides required support for your forward bend posture.
Moreover, you can also use ‘Legs up the Wall’ posture to try it as a classical posture. While using the wall as a prop, you provide ample support to your legs, which allows you to continue this yoga for maximum time. Some other common postures and positions include supported bridge pose, and reclined goddess pose.
Restorative yoga can turn out to be a perfect way to relax and release all your stress. However, in order to achieve this, you need to learn the basic techniques of this yoga. Here at Wellspring, we provide extensive training for restorative and any other types of yoga.
