Restorative yoga develops and nurtures a counter-balance to our overused stress response and re-sets the body’s recovery system. Restorative yoga stimulates the relaxation response by inviting the body to rest in specific and supported postures for time. The postures allow tension to unwind, our breath to slow down and our attention to turn inward where we can connect with our bodily sensations and our feelings.
This Restorative Yoga deck is designed to equip you with everything you need to either begin or continue a balanced restorative practice, whatever your level of experience. The poses and sequences that make up your practice can be organized according to time constraints, personal intention, physiological state, time of day and season of year.
The Restorative Yoga Deck includes a clear “how-to” guide and 8 useful sequences to help build your practice.
Each card includes the following information:
- image of pose and its variations
- type of pose the posture belongs to
- modifications of the pose
- muscle groups released
- meridian lines
Remember to rest.
