restorative yoga

Restorative yoga is like buying a First Class ticket. It's comfort, relaxation and an invitation to fall into a deep rest. This unique form of yoga requires you to trust and surrender.

Through restorative yoga, we invite you to activate your parasympathetic nervous system and allow yourself to just be.

Restore. Relax. Renew.

With a restorative practice you can be more and do less.

While restorative yoga isn’t challenging in the physical sense, it is one of the most difficult forms of yoga. It requires stillness and moving inwards. It’s not about pushing to your edge. It’s about backing off to give the body space.

A restorative practice welcomes you to trust and let go. You can then fall into a receptive state, turning inwards and reaping the benefits of restorative yoga.

What is Restorative Yoga?

A restorative class consists of only 4 to 6 poses which are held for anywhere between 10 to 15 minutes. A class can last between 60 and 90 minutes.

Poses are designed to be extremely comfortable, allowing you to relax deeply. Each asana is supported by various bolsters to allow for ultimate comfort. From bolsters and blocks, to eye cushions and sandbags, a restorative class can often look like a sleepover. 

It can also be combined with yoga nidra and yoga nada for an even more delicious experience.

Aerial Restorative

Aerial restorative yoga takes traditional restorative yoga to a whole new level of comfort. 

In this style, you’ll be able to reap the benefits of both aerial yoga and restorative yoga. And just like the traditional practice, it’s accessible to anyone.  

While the intention behind the yoga is the same as the ground practice, the aerial hammock allows the practice to extend further. 

The hammock provides a deep, comforting pressure that allows us to enter a childlike state. Combined with the props, there’s no better way to relax, restore and renew.
